James Cook University has been ordered to pay marine physicist Peter Ridd more than $1.2 million in compensation after he was wrongly sacked. Dr. Ridd was dismissed in 2018 for saying that organizations like the Australian Institute of Marine Science could no longer be trusted. He says the Great Barrier Reef is not damaged, while global warming alarmists claim that the reef is being destroyed by climate change. Judge Vasta said Dr Ridd was entitled to speak and write without fear of retribution. The university intends to appeal the judgement using taxpayer funds. -GEG

James Cook University has been ordered to pay marine physicist Peter Ridd more than $1.2 million in compensation after he was wrongly sacked, a court has ruled.

Dr Ridd was dismissed by James Cook University (JCU) in 2018 after being issued with a number of warnings for comments he made about a coral researcher and for telling Sky TV that organisations like the Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS) could "no longer be trusted".
