Nafeez Ahmed, the Guardian blogger who published the “exclusive” story that NASA funded a study showing that civilization might collapse, continues to behave in the most shoddy of manner.
As I pointed out last week, after I linked to a piece he wrote full of 9/11 conspiracy theories he simply deleted the piece from his website.
He has now started to do the same thing with his tweets so that he can dodge the claim he ever implied this study was by NASA. Either that or the tweet where he advertised his piece with the sentence “NASA study warns ‘perfect storm’ of global crises could lead to ‘irreversible collapse’ of modern civilisation” was made up by me in blog posts here and here. The link to this tweet however is now dead. A curious thing.
Perhaps one of my readers can confirm if I was simply making this stuff up, or if Mr. Ahmed has being going around deleting inconvenient tweets?
Update: Warren Peace in the comments points to the Google cache of Ahmed’s tweet. I have taken a screen shot. So, I can now rest easy in the knowledge that I am not making things up, and that Mr. Ahmed goes around deleting things to cover his tracks.
