And unless one's goal is to slander the person for the sole purpose debunking the theory by way of ad hominem who gives a __ either which way. Just because he did not have his "California license to practice geology" does not mean he is not a qualified geologist, which unless they were hiring people off the street, is how he got that consulting job in the first place. These licenses are nothing more than "permits" of which California needs one for just about everything. My wife is a microbiologist and California is one of the few states that require a "license". To get it all you need to do is provide proof of your education and pay $250. But of course you have to meet their education requirements which required a completely unrelated physics class and because my wife took it in a foreign country, despite already being part of her official transcript for her degree in the U.S., she had to get documentation from her original school, which she already had but they would not accept, and when all was said and done pay another $100 I think to have it count. And on top of that because it took so long, which they actually wanted us to pay the $250 again (which we said FU), she had to refile so when all was said and done it took over 6 months and cost over $300 to get a piece of paper which if you did not have your degree, the real "license" in and of itself, no one would ever hire you in the first place. So basically California got $350 from us for nothing. Granted, it sure beats paying a fine of $4,500, but that is how the system works.
