After more than 5000 Wikipedia edits on 'climate' related issues, Connolley is banned from all global warming matters.
- "rewrote over 5000 Wikipedia articles on climate change to ensure they complied with his alarmist line."...
- Connolley removed all references to Lewis's stinging resignation letter from his Wikipedia entry, despite it being major news in the media and the climate science community.
As a result, Connolley has been "topic banned" from climate by Wikipedia (see here). Simply "disappearing" information that is inconvenient and doesn't fit with a pre-conceived warmist agenda is unacceptable, whichever side of the debate you're on. A victory for those of us who value truth over propaganda."
- from Lawrence Solomon, National Post, 10/14:
"William Connolley, arguably the world’s most influential global warming advocate after Al Gore, has lost his bully pulpit. Connolley did not wield his influence by the quality of his research or the force of his argument but
- through his administrative position at Wikipedia, the most popular reference source on the planet.
Through his position, Connolley for years kept dissenting views on global warming out of Wikipedia, allowing only those that promoted the view that global warming represented a threat to mankind. As a result,
- Wikipedia became a leading source of global warming propaganda, with Connolley its chief propagandist.
His career as a global warming propagandist has now been stopped, following a unanimous verdict that came down today through an arbitration proceeding conducted by Wikipedia. In the decision, a slap-down for the once-powerful Connolley by his peers, he has been barred from participating in any article, discussion or forum dealing with global warming.
- In addition, because he rewrote biographies of scientists and others he disagreed with, to either belittle their accomplishments or make them appear to be frauds, Wikipedia barred him — again unanimously — from editing biographies of those in the climate change field.
