After more than 5000 Wikipedia edits on 'climate' related issues, Connolley is banned from all global warming matters.

10/16, Australian Climate Madness reports the career of influential Wikipedia global warming/climate topic manipulator William Connolley has come to an end on that forum. As ACM reported in late 2009, William Connolley, UK Green Party activist and Real Climate contributor Lawrence Solomon suggests Connolly perhaps became "the second most influential climate campaigner after Al Gore. However, this week's events regarding American Physical Society member Hal Lewis, were too much.

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 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,

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.

I have written several columns for the National Post on Connolley’s role as a propagandist. Two of them appear [external] here and [external] here."

Addendum: A 10/13 post advises caution in concluding Connelley has made his final climate edit.
