There have been several claims that editors on Wikipedia have been changing facts in order to foment and introduce their own purview of their particular biased or demented world view. Here is a major scientist, a warmist, deciding that the facts were just way too inconvenient. In order to promote their own warmist hoax, decided that the facts had to go and the smearing of legitimate scientists had to be the order of the day..
As we have already witnessed, telling the truth has become the new lie (Orwell anyone), as they practise precisely what they claim to be paramount. The attack on liberty, honesty and truth has once again been demonstrated on one of the main information sites on the planet. Their (Wikipedia) again demonstrates their lackadaisical attitude at maintaining the integrity of the information and facts, they claim to be legitimate, by allowing anyone to volunteer and thereby giving them carte blanche over the input of information..
Does anyone ever check any input for errors at all, factual integrity or verification via cross checking reputable information available or do they just trust anyone to supply any information as fact, as they see fit. One just cannot trust Wikipedia to present the truth anymore. Even scientific information has been corrupted and contaminated..
The sliming of a sceptic is finally too much for even Wikipedia

Professor Hal Lewis has been vilfied by warmists since writing a stinging letter of resignation from the American Physical Society in protest at its underhanded attempts to stifle sceptics of the theory of apocalyptic man-made warming.
Lewis described the warming hysteria as “the greatest and most successful pseudoscientific fraud I have seen in my long life as a physicist”.
James Delingpole describes the sliming - and how a Wikipedia editor, William Connelley, tried to hide the evidence of Lewis’s heresy:
Here is Connolley in action on his blog, scrabbling for dirt:
So, where are the papers? You can’t have a scientific career without papers. There are some early ones – The Multiple Production of Mesons from 1948 with Oppenheimer, no less. Or Multiple Scattering in an Infinite Medium, 1950 – worthy maths-ish thing, I’d guess. But past the late-50’s early 60’s it suddenly gets very thin indeed. I’d guess, without knowing more, that he gave up science and moved into admin.
And here he is, in his role as a Wikipedia editor caught by Watts Up With That doctoring Professor Lewis’s Wikipedia entry so as to edit out that all-important resignation letter.
William Connolley – a green party activist – has form in this regard. Lots of form – as I first reported here last year – drawing on Lawrence Solomon’s definitive National Post expose ”How Wikipedia’s green doctor rewrote 5,428 climate articles”.
Connolley took control of all things climate in the most used information source the world has ever known – Wikipedia. Starting in February 2003, just when opposition to the claims of the band members were beginning to gel, Connolley set to work on the Wikipedia site. He rewrote Wikipedia’s articles on global warming, on the greenhouse effect, on the instrumental temperature record, on the urban heat island, on climate models, on global cooling. On Feb. 14, he began to erase the Little Ice Age; on Aug.11, the Medieval Warm Period. In October, he turned his attention to the hockey stick graph. He rewrote articles on the politics of global warming and on the scientists who were skeptical of the band. Richard Lindzen and Fred Singer, two of the world’s most distinguished climate scientists, were among his early targets, followed by others that the band especially hated, such as Willie Soon and Sallie Baliunas of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, authorities on the Medieval Warm Period.
All told, Connolley created or rewrote 5,428 unique Wikipedia articles. His control over Wikipedia was greater still, however, through the role he obtained at Wikipedia as a website administrator, which allowed him to act with virtual impunity. When Connolley didn’t like the subject of a certain article, he removed it — more than 500 articles of various descriptions disappeared at his hand. When he disapproved of the arguments that others were making, he often had them barred — over 2,000 Wikipedia contributors who ran afoul of him found themselves blocked from making further contributions… In these ways, Connolley turned Wikipedia into the missionary wing of the global warming movement.
Anyway, Connolley’s latest escapade has proved to be the straw that broke the camel’s back for the Wiki administrators. He has now been
banned from writing on “Climate Change” for Wikipedia.
