This will get things stirred up again.
The Mail online's Ben Spencer wrote recently:
A scientific study which suggests global warming has been exaggerated was rejected by a respected journal because it might fuel climate skepticism, it was claimed last night.
The alarming intervention, which raises fears of 'McCarthyist' pressure for environmental scientists to conform, came after a reviewer said the research was 'less than helpful' to the climate cause.
Professor Lennart Bengtsson, a research fellow at the University of Reading and one of five authors of the study, said he suspected that intolerance of dissenting views on climate science was preventing his paper from being published.
'The problem we now have in the climate community is that some scientists are mixing up their scientific role with that of a climate activist,' he told the Times.
Prof Bengtsson's paper suggests that the Earth's environment might be much less sensitive to greenhouse gases than previously thought.
Exactly, I've said this all along. This have gone from scientific discussion to activism.
If you don't believe like we do that the Earth is being destroyed by man-made global warming, you don't have a right to speak, which is ridiculous.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
