I wouldn't claim someone is being selfish/inept without understanding all the motives and variables surrounding the situation. He isn't talking about those so we don't know could be fake, could be real! You could say the same for any secretive researcher or cautious individual when you don't see exactly what they see! I know he's seems to be stringing this along for a while, but remember there may be powerful people he communicates with that may just be using his situation as a scapegoat, or you are right! Consider all possibilities until we know the details. Amor Kombucha! It is better for you than whiskey lol.
Walter is really straining his faulty "only two possible rational scenarios" logic to ignore this `100% certainty.
However even in his inept and selfish strivings Rossi may have contributed 0.1% to saving the planet..
Wife is back on Monday.. all I could find was kombucha.. no whisky
