Washington: Climate scientists who have posed questions about the relevance of global warming issues are reportedly being ostracized.
The consensus often say that they`re demonized and are unable to publish and unable to find any research funding.
A research paper by Lennart Bengtsson, a respected research fellow and climatologist at Britain`s University of Reading, was rejected last February by a leading academic journal after a reviewer found that it was "harmful" to the climate change agenda.
Bengtsson`s research, submitted to the journal Environmental Research Letters for publication, said that greenhouse gas emissions may be less harmful and cause less warming than computer models project.
According to The Times of London, Bengtsson resigned from a think tank`s advisory board after being put under enormous pressure from other academics and one US government scientist.
