One of Australia's most outspoken scientists has this week rubbished the team behind the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland, describing the project as nothing more than a "nuclear billiards machine" and saying the money should be devoted to paying for more climate change research instead.

•claimed a conspiracy of white, Anglo Celtic elderly males was behind the skeptic movement
