I don't read this list very often. I was co-promoter of Roel Nicolai - 
who is head of the geodesy department of Shell.

I would advise you to wait with conclusions, especially on the basis of 
newspaper articles, until you have read the full 400pp dissertation. At 
this moment it is not available, but publication is in progress.

In the mean time I will forward the discussion to mr. Nicolai. Maybe he 
will send some answer to this list.
