Lennart Bengtsson leaves advisory board of GWPF
by Hans von Storch

In an e-mail to GWPF, Lennart Bengtsson gas declared his resignation of the advisory hoard of GWPF. His letter reads :

“I have been put under such an enormous group pressure in recent days from all over the world that has become virtually unbearable to me. If this is going to continue I will be unable to conduct my normal work and will even start to worry about my health and safety. I see therefore no other way out therefore than resigning from GWPF. I had not expecting such an enormous world-wide pressure put at me from a community that I have been close to all my active life. …

    Disgusting bullying but hardly surprising, only proving climate science is doctrinal-noted when Lamb was still about. Bengtsson should have known about the Omerta of the climate mafia. If he is genuinely taken by the reaction it speaks for the levels of denial in post modern science.

    This frantic push demonstrates that they know that they have lost the argument and plan on winning with a no holds attack at the end before all support is lost.
    The self organized chaos of the Internet is prevailing over the long term covert efforts of the organized Elite to subjugate the worlds population.

    This is sickening.
    I am very sorry for Professor Bengtsson, the pressure must have been unbearable.
    I can’t even begin to say how much I despise these nameless climate ‘scientists’ who did this.
    As the old German saying has it: I can’t even eat as much as I want to puke.’

    And if it’s not obvious by now: here’s the proof why so many climate ‘scientists’ will not stand up and recant, not even when they’re retired.
    Put’s Judy Curry’s stance into an even better light!

    So climate ‘science’ is dominated by official groupthink. Who knew?

  5. doug Proctor says:

    Isn’t this what happened to Bellamy? And what about the two Pats, Michaels and Moore?

  6. Anything is possible says:

    Bullies NEVER stop until somebody stands up to them, there are laws against this kind of thing ;

    Why not use them?

    The groupmind flexes its muscles.

  8. oldbrew says:

    Suitably strong reaction from Judith Curry on her blog.

    ‘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.’

    This won’t do the Professor’s health any good either.

    ‘Professor Lennart Bengtsson claims his study on global warming has been rejected as it might fuel climate scepticism’
    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2630023/Study-suggesting-global-warming-exaggerated-rejected-publication-respected-journal-helpful-climate-cause-claims-professor.html

    ‘Paper suggests that climate is less sensitive to greenhouse gases than previously thought.’

    Naughty naughty – the AGW rulebook does not permit such notions.
    What right has he to think differently etc etc. 😉
