Peer review Part 1

We wonder whether in its coverage of the resignation of Wolfgang Wagner from Remote Sensing the ABC will ask Roger Pielke Snr for input. Or will they just pursue one side of the story? Here's Roger's most recent blog post.
Hopefully have more on this in the next few days.

Hatchet Job On John Christy and Roy Spencer By Kevin Trenberth, John Abraham and Peter Gleick
There is an opinion article at Daily Climate that perpetuates serious misunderstandings regarding the research of Roy Spencer and John Christy. It also is an inappropriate (and unwarranted) person attack on their professional integrity. Since I have first hand information on this issue, I am using my weblog to document the lack of professional decorum by Keven Trenberth, John Abraham and Peter Gleick.

Click the link to read the rest. We passed this on the the ABC.

Update 18.12 Simon at ACM reports on ABC's first mention of the story. It's not in the news section, it's on The Drum...Opinion first, news later!

Even warmists should be appalled


  1. I guess we could lay odds Marc which side Auntie will follow.
    But the hysterical outbursts if they do nothing else, serve to illustrate that Trenberth and Co with their vicious slimeing of Christy and Spencer have indeed conceded that the debate is over and that their side has lost.

  2. I suspect they may be waiting for the Dressler article coming out this week. This another subversion of the Peer review process the comment should appear in Remote sensing.
