Hello List,

I am new to this List and I am glad to be able to join a
community with so many excellent researchers some of whom's
several books fill my shelves. I am a journalist and work for
several Russian, German and other European media outlets
collecting and researching news on scientific issues.

I just wanted to underline and confirm what Joachim Koch wrote
about Werner Walter.

I too vividly remember his TV appearances on RTL and other
German TV stations during the Belgian UFO wave, the Greifswald
lights and other central European UFO incidents of that time.

He is (or was?) Germany's most notorious armchair debunker,
explaining away everything, no matter how bizarre his
explanations, all this without having the slightest scientific
background. He is (or was?) in many ways the German incarnation
of Phil Klass.

In recent years, he only got very little attention on TV and
mainstream media, presumably because his lack of credentials was,
in the end, acknowledged by them.

I too can only advise to be very cautious regarding information
originating from him.


Best Regards,

Harper Carlotto
