CRU has had another great success in getting KCDC to reveal the expertise of their own internal climate change advisor. Ms. Lash, without any qualifications has been accepted by all the Councillors as having expertise in climate change. She and the Council refused to disclose her qualifications. The Ombudsman ordered for KCDC to do so. What is revealed is that she has no expertise what so ever. It does show that she has read books on climate change. We contend that reading books on a subject does not make you an expert on the subject.
