Dr. Curry Vanishes! 20 Women Reduced to 19! Warmist Aussie Climate Council Deletes Dr. Judith Curry from list of 20 Women in Climate Debate

March 22, 2016

By Paul Homewood  




Tony Thomas writes about Tim Flannery’s attempts to remove Judith Curry from a list of female climate experts:


When a three-year-old tells whoppers it can be cute. It’s not so cute if the whopper-tellers are scientist Tim Flannery, aged 60, and his Climate Council. Flannery is Chief Councillor of the crowd-funded body, which is dedicated to “accurate and authoritative information on all aspects of climate change”.

His Council website has this item:

19 climate champions, who also happen to be women… To celebrate International Women’s Day, here’s a list of nineteen women kicking goals in the climate change debate — from scientists to politicians, diplomats, community organisers and more.

It begins, “This article originally appeared on the International Council for Science’s Road to Paris website.” Click through to that site (a spin-off from the International Council for Science, ICSU) and you find the original was not about 19 women but was headed, “20 women making waves in the climate change debate”.

Even more mysterious, the Climate Council website has a Facebook prompt headlined:

Kicking goals: 20 climate champions, who also happen to be women…From scientists to politicians, community organisers to diplomats – here are 20 women fighting for climate action around the world.

But click it and the original 20 women suddenly become the Climate Council’s 19.


20 women minus one


So what’s going on? The ICSU’s 20 women were meant to reflect women’s contribution to the “diversities of the climate debate”. The 20 included distinguished scientist Dr Judith Curry, who doesn’t toe the doomsters’ party line on climate. The Climate Council simply couldn’t bear to list her – even though she has a peer-reviewed publication list of 150+,  dwarfing that of the other women cited in the top 20 (or top 19).  So the Climate Council simply clipped her from the list, notwithstanding the ICSU’s copyright.

The Climate Council’s tampering was done without public acknowledgement or apology to the original compilers,  namely three editors associated with ICSU and the Stockholm Resilience Centre. The editors in turn had compiled the list by an extra survey  in the wake of their unisex survey about top 15 climate news-makers a year ago. That list of 15 included only three women. The Road to Paris doesn’t say who exactly was surveyed for nominations for its later “20 women” list, but did name 16 individuals who were both “judges” and respondents for the unisex list of 15.

    The Streisand effect in action….. Dr. Curry will now receive much more publicity than she would have if alarmist Tim had left her on the list.

    Try corresponding with any of them about a substantive climate issue. But, don’t hold your breath waiting for a substantive response, if any.

      My favorite is Figueres, IPPC executive secretary and spokes person. She claims AGW isn’t about climate but instead about wealth re distribution and the destruction of Capitalism. Why her statements don’t raise red flags around the world is beyond me.

    Curry has no one else to blame but herself for being dumped from the top 20 women climate scientists. She should know better than to question the prevailing wisdom that humans have fried the planet by 0.8 degrees C since 1850. Not to mention the fact she hinted taxpayer funds could be used to study natural climate variation. Heretic. Denier..

    Judith Curry joins the ranks of the “disappeared”.

    Judith Curry does believe in the warming effect of CO2, but doesn’t believe in all the hoopla that goes along with it. She basically stood up and told her fellow climate scientists, “Calm down.”

    Looks like they didn’t appreciate it much.

    Bring back Dr. Curry!
