Enviro's Behaving Badly

That post title is almost redundant...Here are three links that clearly show the kind of irresponsible, immoral, and corrupt behavior enviros will exhibit when faced with one of their own leaves the fold:

First, an excerpt from a Times article that says it all:
A leading climate scientist has resigned from the advisory board of a think-tank after being subjected to what he described as “McCarthy”-style pressure from fellow academics.
Professor Lennart Bengtsson, a research fellow at the University of Reading, said the pressure was so intense that he would be unable to continue working and feared for his health and safety unless he stepped down from the Global Warming Policy Foundation’s academic advisory council.
Second, the irrepressible Matt Ridley, with the Bengtsson story as the context, wonders when it became ok to demonize those who disagree with the dominant narrative.

And finally, another scandal may be developing:
Research which heaped doubt on the rate of global warming was deliberately suppressed by scientists because it was “less than helpful” to their cause, it was claimed last night.
In an echo of the infamous “Climategate” scandal at the University of East Anglia, one of the world’s top academic journals rejected the work of five experts after a reviewer privately denounced it as “harmful”.
