Social Anthropologist


Yesterday I was privileged to meet Dr Benny Peiser (left), who is a social anthropologist at Liverpool John Moores University. You can find out about Benny here at his homepage.

He was being interviewed for the magazine Brussels Bulletin about his views on climate change. It was fascinating to listen to a scientist who looks at climate change objectively, or from a sceptical point of view. Too many people are committed to the cause of green politics because of a political agenda, or because of vested interest, or they have been brainwashed into a political stand on an issue that is far too important for that. Interestingly since yesterday I have 'googled' Benny Peiser and on at least one website he is labelled a 'denier', meaning that he disagrees, or questions, current thinking on climate change. Check out his homepage and decide for yourself.

'Allo. Just dropping by as a fellow UKIP blogger as urged in your piece in Independence.
Keep up the good work!....especially as you already link to one place I work (the ASI).
