Agricultural Alchemist and Cosmic Plumber Nixed from Scientific Conference
Kudos to the science fans that raised awareness of David Avocado Wolfe being invited to address a scientific conference. The Biohacker Conference in Helsinki removed him from the proceedings after a substantial outcry by science enthusiasts in social media. Wow! Special shout out to @Sarah_Zhr and Sebastian Cocioba for bringing this to my attention!
This is an example of the need for continued surveillance. Charlatans are invited to scientific events either by accident or because they create their own sections of the conference and organizers don't notice.
Keep paying attention to the lineups of such events. Keep in mind that they never invite scientists to pseudoscience events, so we should never invite pseudoscientists to a scientific event!
Nice work, science community.
