Environmentalists are keen to write off anyone whose research has been anywhere near oil money or coal money (or probably a banker too). It's very silly. I remember one group of greens condemning Climate Audit's Steve McIntyre because he had once written a paper for a think tank that had once accepted a donation from Exxon.
It's that daft.
Anyway, from the same Nature article I covered in the last piece comes this:
We're entering a new epoch of sea-ice melt in the Arctic Ocean due to climate change," says Peter Wadhams, an oceanographer at the University of Cambridge, UK, who is conducting research in the Fram Strait off Greenland aboard the Greenpeace ship Arctic Sunrise.
Scientist cosy with environmentalists? I think we can safely ignore everything Peter Wadhams produces from now on.
