…all you need to read is this paragraph from the Spectator
There’s no way I would have done this if I hadn’t been a tenured professor, fairly near the end of my career. If I were seeking a new job in the US academy, I’d be pretty much unemployable. I can still publish in the peer-reviewed journals. But there’s no way I could get a government research grant to do the research I want to do. Since then, I’ve stopped judging my career by these metrics. I’m doing what I do to stand up for science and to do the right thing.’
So what is this horrible risky thing that Judith Curry did that others dare not
She began to be reviled after the 2009 ‘Climategate’ scandal, when leaked emails revealed that some scientists were fighting to suppress sceptical views. ‘I started saying that scientists should be more accountable, and I began to engage with sceptic bloggers.
Now this would on its face seem a sensible thing, after all if the science is with you engaging other people is the thing to do, as Yul Brenner said in the movie the Buccaneer: If you’re offer is good it will stand up under fire. and if the science is with you there is certainly no problem with someone looking over the data.
What does it say about climate cabal that this is considered such unacceptable behavior that no person without tenure would date to say it and be able to hold a job?
If you want to know where the special snowflakes on campus these days get it from , now you know.
