Yesterday was ÖA reveal Örnsköldsvik Municipality mistake . Officials believed they invited an engineer who worked for NASA.
Instead, the American Douglas Mallette.
He was one of the poster child for the so-called Zeitgeist Movement.
The movement will be happy impression that Mallette is some kind of “space experts” that he has been involved in developing space shuttles for NASA.
In their promotional material, the organizers of the visit ended with a number of claims. Among other things, that Mallette “devoted professional life to developing technologies for sustainable ecological systems in space.”
It is not true.
But what has the actually Mallette made? Well, the closest he comes is a space that holds a similar position a trainee for the company GeoControl Systems.
For them, Mallette worked on systems for cargo handling, loading and unloading, at the Kennedy Space Center. Warehouse work, if you like.
Before that he worked for the U.S. Navy and later as a salesman. Mallette has negotiated everything from cigarettes to airline tickets and menswear.
To say that Mallette worked with space skyttelprogrammet is stretching the truth.
More doubts that the municipality is spreading also applies Mallette companies Cybernated Farm Systems (CFS).
World-class company describes as “revolutionary” and “high tech”.
It’s very well done for a one-man company that was started a few months ago, you would think. The company now registered in November 2011.
Pictures from Mallette so-called research facility also says the a lot about CFS.
The facility consists of a small narrow closet on a number square. There Mallette two small frames for vegetables. That’s all.
According to Mallette’s own data is the development budget in the current situation of the project at just over 35 000. Instead of high technology, this is rather a small hobby project where Mallette trying to cultivate energy-efficient.
Errors such as these have World class helped to spread out. And officials’ claims of a direct collaboration with the Green Party has been the politicians to respond.
Liberal Party Gunnar Melin is one of the politicians who are extremely skeptical about how it was handled.
– This seems very strange. Is it bad research or what is going on? And how can the World class at all, think about the idea of a collaboration with a political party in this way, he says and continues:
– This indicates a lack of knowledge and / or poor track of what to do in the context of World Class.
OA has tried to achieve World Class Project Vanya Östman for comment.
