Main Question or Discussion Point

He is Walter L. Wagner. I know it's pretty much a non-issue because CERN is going to ignore his lawsuit anyway, but he still disseminates incorrect information. Has anyone bothered to look at his credentials? I cam across an affidavit he swore in a Hawaii court were he claims to be a theoretical physicist. But he has is degree in biology and only a minor in physics. I'm doing a minor in math and but that doesn't make me a mathematician. Hell, even my degree in physics won't make me a physicist, only when I get my PhD then will I have a modicum of credibility. He also claims his work as a nuclear safety officer and his conversations with physicists give him the knowledge. And he also claims to have found a magnetic monopole...I'm not trying to be a troll, I'm genuinely concerned, not for CERN or the LHC, this guy is nothing to them, but for the general misinformation he's spreading, as I listened to the radio show he was on and the callers were actually becoming worried. Any thoughts?

I made a magnetic monopole once. I cut my magnet in half.

I made a magnetic monopole...
Big deal - I made a magnetic tadpole.
