Climatic Research Unit Shameful Peer-Review Control Tactics: The Soon/Baliunas Debacle.

The latest interview by (MP3 Download. Right Click>Save As) Dr. Tim Ball on climategate 2.0 on Corbett

I noticed a few phrases repeated in attacks against anyone challenging ‘official’ science created at the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). One phrase said the person had no peer-reviewed work – it was falsely used against me. Another, also used against me, claimed the person was not a “working climate scientist”. This was necessary because they and many supporters were unqualified. I suspected it was a chosen strategy, which was confirmed in a leaked email from Michael Mann.

“This was the danger of always criticising the skeptics for not publishing in the “peer-reviewed literature”.

The strategy reflected their ability to control peer-review of their publications and restrict publication of unfavorable articles. Among the most egregious examples of both abilities involved attacks on Willie Soon and Sallie Baliunas.

Behavior of the CRU disclosed in the newly released emails are an intellectual and academic disgrace. What follows is a classic example of the activities of those involved with the CRU and the IPCC.

I published an article on December 5, 2009 shortly after the first leak of emails from the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) occurred identifying one action by John P Holdren (some of the ways of population control proprosed in a book written by this “fine gentleman” can be found here), Obama’s Science Czar, when on faculty at Harvard. It’s reproduced on my website. Holdren wrote,

“I’m forwarding for your entertainment an exchange that followed from my being quoted in the Harvard Crimson to the effect that you and your colleagues are right and my “Harvard” colleagues Soon and Baliunas are wrong about what the evidence shows concerning surface temperatures over the past millennium.”

Reacent release (PDF Download) of 5000+ emails provides further evidence of the deliberate efforts to silence them.
