An editorial in the Washington Times describes Ross McKitrick's efforts to publish a scientific paper that documents a fundamental error in the IPCC's 2007 report. This error involved adjusting global surface temperature readings to get a higher temperature change. However, Dr. McKitrick's efforts to have the paper published by the journals Science, Nature and the the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society were rejected. However, the paper will appear in a forthcoming edition of Statistics, Politics and Policy.
