Wikipedia has deleted its List of Scientists Who Disagree with the Scientific Consensus on Global Warming. Stalin — who set the template for airbrushing inconvenient people out of history — would no doubt have heartily approved of this wanton act of censorship.
Electroverse reported on the reasoning for the censorship as given by one of the Wikipedia editors:
The result was delete. This is because I see a consensus here that there is no value in having a list that combines the qualities of a) being a scientist, in the general sense of that word, and b) disagreeing with the scientific consensus on global warming.
If scientific consensus on global warming really existed, Wikipedia's editors would keep this list published as a “hall of shame” for others to know who they should ignore as dangerous climate change skeptics. Instead, they show a lack of confidence in the science and reveal their own authoritarian instincts.

There were a few sane voices of opposition. One such voice pointed out that the deleted list included some very accomplished scientists responsible for these so called “fringe theories advanced for religious purposes.”
Let’s take a look at the list of people responsible for your so called “fringe theories advanced for religious purposes,” shall we?
- Patrick Moore, one of the founders of Greenpeace;
- Ivan Giaver, who won the Nobel Peace Prize;
- Judith Curry, retired head of the Atmospheric Sciences Department of the Georgia Institute of Technology;
- Richard Lindzen, retired head of the Atmospheric Sciences Department of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and member of the National Academy of Sciences (you know, that thing Einstein was a member of);
- Vincent Courtillot, a member of the French Academy of Sciences;
- Khabibullo Abdussamatov, a member of the Russian Academy of Sciences;
- John Christy, who is a professor at the University of Alabama at Huntsville, who keeps the temperature data used by NOAA and NASSA, and who contributes to the IPCC reports;
- Roy Spencer, who keeps the data with John Christy;
- Frederich Seitz, former President of the National Academy of Sciences.
