If you feel as I do about this outrageous use of public funding, feel free to use my letter as a template for your own protest.

TO: Professor Paul Johnson,Vice-Chancellor, University of Western Australia


Dear Professor Johnson
I understand that the University of Western Australia has accepted major funding to set up a “consensus centre” headed by the well-known, and scientifically disreputable, Bjorn Lomborg (http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/apr/17/abbott-government-gives-4m-to-help-climate-sceptic-set-up-australian-centre), whose idea of consensus does not appear to include accepting the work and predictions of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (http://www.ipcc.ch/report/ar5/wg2/).
If this is indeed the case, I am writing to ask that you rescind this decision, which does not reflect well on your university or on Australian academic standards,

Yours sincerely

Len Fisher
