Remote Sensing Editor Resigns over Spencer and Braswell paper
12:52am 5th September 2011
Publishing a good paper that goes against the climate change 'consensus' is enough for a journal editor to resign over - OMG!
Journal editor resigns over anti-AGW paper - oh the horror!
See this BBC article
for the main stream media report on this.
Notice how they do not really refute the paper on any observed data driven grounds, rather refer back to the models as being more 'solid' than the observed data from satellites. Basically a smudge by association...
Jo Anne Nova has a detailed article
on this. Apparently this particular news piece has gone super viral - perhaps not exactly what the resignation was meant to cause - talk about shooting yourself in the foot! As I've said before they are their own worst enemy.
Also see here
for the paper and a handy primer
on the key points. Enjoy!
Does indeed look like a case of Follow the Money
