    I always had great respect for Nigel and his career. I particularly admired his courage for speaking out against the catastrophic man-made global warming propaganda. It was a very sad day indeed when he passed away.

    Nigel will be forever remembered here in Australia.

  2. Steve says:

    I ‘discovered’ Nigel at a used book store in the early 1980s when I stumbled across “The Key to the Universe”. I then read everything that he wrote that I could find. It was a wonderful day when I discovered Dr Calder online. We have lost a brilliant man and a great communicator. My greatest regret is that I never emailed him and thanked him for the knowledge he gave me. So I’ll say here what I should have said to the great man himself:
    THANK YOU Dr Calder for all you’ve done for me and humanity. RIP, Sir- you are missed.
