Question – when did it become the case that “Incumbency” automatically means any view they express is wrong?

Just throwing this one out there, as I’ve been asking myself this question increasingly 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.
