It’s still unbelievable, given what most of us have seen the “Global Warming” scientists pull off with the help of their leftist political friends, but here they’re at it yet again.
But peer-reviewed publication in a journal has become a powerful propaganda weapon – the lead scientists who submit and review each others’ papers are often chapter editors for the IPCC’s assessment reports, the “bible” used by politicians to formulate climate policy. Several efforts where editors were pressured to keep dissenting views out of the prestigious journals have been documented.
“I can’t see either of these papers being in the next IPCC report. Kevin [Trenberth] and I will keep them out somehow — even if we have to redefine what the peer-review literature is!” vowed Dr Phil Jones, head of the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia. Jones and Trenberth were both co-ordinating lead authors on the IPCC’s Fourth Assessment report, published in 2007.
The head of research is not only actively suppressing any evidence contrary to the official leftist line, but admits it openly. Is it front page NYT?
I’ll have to check that.
No. It’s not.
Anthony Watts destroys the idiocy starting below. Read it and wonder why you bothered going to science class. You could’ve made it all up if it agreed with Al Gore.
