Missing News: Too many nuances at Nature
In a piece titled Invited Letter Now Rejected By Nature Magazine Roger Peilke Snr describes how Nature rejected a letter it initially requested about problems with global surface temperature data. Despite submitting the letter, and making revisions as requested by Nature's editorial staff, he reports that the invited letter has been rejected, not because it is not up to standards, is incorrect, or is not on point, but because "there are too many nuances to this situation to be properly communicated by a short item (or items) on our letters page.".
The full letter and Roger Pielke Snr's description of events can be found HERE.
We suspect this news item will prove to be "too nuanced" for ABC to provide coverage.
