As people here are aware I was actually party to the discussions within the Slayers of the P/4 issue. I know what was said, and by whom, because I still have the private emails.
The discussions to all intents and purposes ended with a word document titled the battle of the earth models. I am not sure a public version was ever produced, but it should of been.
I will try to remember to email the appropriate person to ask if such a version does or will exist. Given the quote above, it is sorely needed.
If I get hold of such a version of the word document I will post it here.
In essence, there were two schools of thought within the Slayers upon the issue. A majority (against P/4) and an opposing minority (in favour of P/4) view.
Climate Realist is a great fan of Claes Johnson's view point and maths approach, I assume that is what he is referring to when he says what the Slayers say about P/4.
I can assure you that what I wrote in the P/4 thread reflected the majority within the Slayers view on the subject, not the minority view, which is the position Claes Johnson held, and to the best of my knowledge still does hold to.
The above quote I also reacted to, as it does not reflect what I saw actually happen within the Slayers.
I felt it a misrepresentation, from a partly, or not completely informed and biased source.
Climate Realist does not know what went on within the Slayers discussion (that I was actually party to) of the subject, or if he does, it is at best second hand, and seemingly incomplete.
The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed
(and hence clamorous to be led to safety)
by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

The hobgoblins have to be imaginary so that
"they" can offer their solutions, not THE solutions.
