Canada's National Post reports here and here that one of the objectives of those promoting Climate alarm was to control Wikipedia. Starting in February 2003 U.K. scientist and Green Party activist William Connolley, one of nine Realclimate.org team members, rewrote Wikipedia'½Â½Â(TM)s articles on global warming, on the greenhouse effect, on the instrumental temperature record, on the urban heat island, on climate models, on global cooling as well as working to erase the Little Ice Age, the Medieval Warm Period and infamous hockey stick graph. He rewrote articles on the politics of global warming and on the scientists who were skeptical of the team.

According to the article Connolly created or rewrote 5,428 unique Wikipedia articles, removed more than 500 articles as an administrator and barred over 2000 Wikipedia contributors while rewarding those who supported his views. "In these ways, Connolley turned Wikipedia into the missionary wing of the global warming movement.""

    Here is an example of deniers attacking Wikipedia contributors.

    It's a shame the extent the deniers go to in order to please their big oil masters.

      "It's a shame the extent the deniers go to in order to please their big oil masters." It's amazing how readily one uses ad hominem attacks when they can't attack actual arguments.
  • So wikipedia gets some actual excepts and people still complain. I supose that is one way of dealing with reality's liberal bias.

FORTH IF HONK THEN
