Analytical Challenge - keeping an open mind to positions expressed by a broad range of people

Just throwing this one out there, as I’ve been asking myself the question:

      when did it become the case that “Incumbency” automatically means any views they express are wrong?

It seems to be that I have been seeing this lazy linkage used more frequently in recent times  as the debate and discussion mounts about this energy transition – so it’s probable that I will refer back to it increasingly in future posts.

If time permits, I will (belatedly, admittedly) flesh out this post with more details – just need to throw it up now as a reference point.

    I realise this is largely a rhetorical question, but I’m going to answer it anyway. Presuming you mean ‘x works in the industry, therefore rather than x being an expert whose opinion should be respected, x is a vested interest who should be ignored’, I reckon I’ve been noticing this sort of sentiment in these circles for nigh on ten years.
