Judith Curry comments. I will have much more to write about this in a few days. For now, I will say that I deeply regret that any scientist, particularly such a distinguished scientist as Bengsston, has had to put up with these attacks. This past week, we have seen numerous important and enlightening statements made by Bengtsson about the state of climate science and policy, and science and society is richer for this. We have also seen a disgraceful display of Climate McCarthyism by climate scientists, which has the potential to do as much harm to climate science as did the Climategate emails. And we have seen the GWPF handle this situation with maturity and dignity Judith Curry
I’ve written elsewhere that this is an own goal for the climate bullies. Bengsston is 79 years old. He has made his anti-alarmist views widely known and has resigned not recanted.
Now the fun begins as we try to hunt down the bullies. But even if that hunt is unsuccessful, the fact these anti-scientific creeps have resorted to intimidating an elderly, distinguished, scientist tells us just how worried they are that the science is collapsing and with it the loony policy prescriptions.
