Peter Ridd tapte
« on: 23.07.2020, 17:27:35 »
Triste nyheter fra Australia, Peter Ridd tapte ankesaken om sin oppsigelse etter å ha vunnet i første rettsinstans:

The Federal Court has devastating blow against mainstream Australians, against freedom of speech and against freedom of speech on climate change by overturning the earlier decision in the Federal Circuit Court which held that Dr Peter Ridd was unlawfully dismissed by James Cook University.

Alarmingly, this decision shows that contractual provisions guaranteeing intellectual freedom do not protect academics against censorship by university administrators. The time has come for the Morrison Government to intervene.

Harde ord også fra Joanne Nova:
As I said, this is a case so pointless that even if JCU wins, it loses. And it has spent a fortune to win the legal battle and prove that we cannot trust anything anyone says from JCU.

This win doesn’t just tarnish the VC and admin, it taints everyone who works there.  No matter what any good academic says at JCU, the world will wonder what they didn’t say. We can’t know whether they would have preferred to say something else, but couldn’t out of fear that they will be sacked because the VC might not like it.


It’s time the The Hon Dan Tehan explained why taxpayers should fund research at JCU which has no quality control, wastes money on lawyers, doesn’t investigate fraud, and does not enshrine free speech in employment contracts.

The government could fix this entire embarrassing debacle in five minutes. They just need to withhold JCU funding til the uni protects free speech — rehires Ridd, and sacks the VC Sandra Harding AO who was paid $975,000 in 2018.

Ja, det er ramsalte karakteristikker av JCU som leveres rundt om. Selv enkelte varmister er ille berørt over Ridd-saken.

PS: WUWT sliter med å flytte over data og re-etablere seg på sin gamle plattform, men har likevel fått til en kommentar til saken her:

Hm, WUWT er visst blitt for store til å komme inn i Wordpress igjen.

We ran into many frustrating problems attempting the site move at this time. Moving a site this large is a formidable task. After days of repeated failure by tech support and paid consultants, we are stepping back from the move for now.

Please do not swarm us with suggestions. We will be examining alternatives and will reach out for assistance when needed.
