Banned by ANU! So join Geologist Howard Brady’s on Zoom instead Tuesday 2pm

Sorry that this is very short notice! This is today at 2pm EST, Australia. All Welcome. 

Howard Brady in Antarctica c 1970s

Dr Howard Brady is a geologist who has done four expeditions to Antarctica. He won the Distinguished Scientist Alumnus of the Year Award for his contributions to Antarctic research. He has been published in journals like Nature and Science.  He was to do a seminar at ANU today, but it has been cancelled. This upset people in the department at ANU, who may have thought they could write freely. So now its going ahead as a Zoom ANU meeting:

2 pm Tuesday 6 October 2020

Venue: Online via Zoom (link)

All welcome; no registration necessary.

ATTACK ON ACADEMIC FREEDOM

Professor Ross McCleod was ordered at the Australian National University (ANU) by higher authority – Professor Paul Burke – to withdraw my ACDE (Arnt-Corden) seminar for the Crawford School of Public Policy next Tuesday at 2pm as an official event.

This upset many in that Department as an attack on academic freedom..it seems that some in the faculty are receiving funds with regard to carbon […]
