Wikipedia climate censor booted

Lawrence Solomon:
William Connolley, arguably the world’s most influential global warming advocate after Al Gore, has lost his bully pulpit ... his administrative position at Wikipedia, the most popular reference source on the planet.

... Connolley for years kept dissenting views on global warming out of Wikipedia ... a leading source of global warming propaganda, with Connolley its chief propagandist.

... following a unanimous verdict that came down today through an arbitration proceeding conducted by Wikipedia. ... he has been barred from participating in any article, discussion or forum dealing with global warming. In addition ... Wikipedia barred him — again unanimously — from editing biographies of those in the climate change field.
Long overdue. Good riddance to Connolley.
