Wikipedia editor William Connelley displayed his true colors and confirmed the reason why Wikipedia is an unreliable source of information when it comes to climate science: extreme bias by editors.
Ironically, Mr. Revisionist himself complained yesterday in a reader comment at NTZ about one of his other comments being delayed here at NTZ, demanding to know why his childish taunting of distinguished climate scientist Lennart Bengtsson was being held up (spam filter).
Sorry, but I need to sleep too, and so sometimes reader comments caught in the filter have to wait till morning.
Naturally, we do not want the king of climate science revisionism to get the feeling that he himself is being censored, and so I’ve decided to upgrade his comment to a post as a gesture of good will:
Mr. Connelly of course is just being plain childish on the current issue. Lennart Bengtsson, former director of the prestigious Max Planck Institute for Meteorology (MPI-M) in Hamburg, is hardly a meek man who has a history of being “someone who fades easily”. Rather he is someone who has a way of always standing out:
1986: Julius von Hann Gold Medal of the Austrian Society for Meteorology
1990: Körber Prize for European Science (together with Bert Bolin and Klaus Ferdinand Hasselmann)
1996: Milutin Milanković Medal of the European Geophysical Society (EGU)
1998: Environmental Prize of the Bundesstiftung Umwelt as a member of the working group Climate Research of the MPI-M
2005: Descartes-Prize as a member of the CECA (climate and environmental change in the Arctic) working group (together with Leonid Bobylew and Ola M. Johannessen)
2006: International Meteorological Organization (IMO) Prize of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO)
2007: Rossby Prize of the Swedish Geophysical Society (SGS)
2009: Alfred Wegener Medal
I believe we haven’t heard the last of Bengtsson by any means.
Finally, I’d be the last to hold back such a comment as that made by Connelley above because it clearly reveals and confirms everything we’ve always suspected of many in the alarmist camp and what is really behind Bengtsson’s resignation. Draw your own conclusions.
