A friend has passed away

In 1977 he made the movie "the weather machine" about how Earth is doomed to enter a new ice-age. Since those apocalyptic predictions did not materialize, he knew better once the wheels have turned and people talked about imminent warming. That is, his immune system developed immunity against blindly accepting alarmist predictions.

When he learned of my friend Henrik Svensmark's work, he of course found it interesting, which is why several years later they ended up writing a book together, the Chilling Stars.

As for myself, I met him just once. We had lunch in the restaurant opposite to the British Museum, but had plenty of e-mail correspondence. He will be fondly remembered. This is his last blog post.
