Lorrie Goldstein: Climate expert’s pants on fire

“Was lying about his identity the only thing Peter Gleick lied about?”

Lorrie Goldstein writes in the Toronto Sun:

Question: If a world-famous climate scientist lied to obtain documents fraudulently, would he lie about other things? Like his research?

    make simplified, dramatic statements
    and make little mention of any doubts…
    Each of us has to decide what the right balance
    is between being effective and being honest.”
    – Prof. Stephen Schneider,
    Stanford Professor of Climatology,

  2. Gleick also left a review for LaFramboise’s book in Amazon when he obviously didn’t read it, this is lying as well. Gleick was obviously more motivated by activism than by science. You don’t have to search too far to see other examples of activism in climate science. Look at what Trenberth and Dessler did with the publication of Dr. Spencer’s paper in Remote Sensing. This is the same behavior that we witnessed in the first batch of climategate emails and I think its a sad state of affairs for science. If it wasn’t about activism why wouldn’t the major players simply prove the skeptics wrong instead of going to such great lengths to try and discredit them?
