This post is just to get you to read James Annans post about: An Inconvenient Truth. Which is his (& Jules) attempt to get his paper about climate sensitivity published. Since the paper is sound, and sensible, and very clear and readable, and of clear wide interest, the question is why isn’t it published?
The best available answer seems to be that some people don’t like his rather clear demonstration that a lot of the talk about high climate sensitivity (hands up CP.net and Stern) is nonsense.
Another possibility is that he isn’t well known enough: this is the sort of basic paper that someone eminent in the field (sorry J+J) gets to publish and everyone subsequently references. It reminds me of a wonderful cartoon of a business meeting, all men, bar one woman. And the chair is saying: “thats an excellent suggestion Miss Smith. Perhaps one of the men here would like to make it?”.
