Default Re: More on Fakegate!

So when last we met, Ocean expressed her opinion of Fakegate:

There's something called climate change, with an anthropogenic component that may create great havoc for the entire planet, that draws my attention a little bit more than this petty stuff that you seem to find so important.
So there is something which may cause havoc (pretty technical stuff, I'm impressed!) and this draws her attention. But one of the people who is one of her experts and is saying the things which are drawing her attention has stolen and falsified documents. She doesn't seem to see a connection and calls pointing this out petty. This guy doesn't. This guy used to be Gleick's boss:
During the third week of February our global community of Earth and space scientists witnessed the shocking fall from grace of an accomplished AGU member who betrayed the principles of scientific integrity
These rare and sad occasions remind us that our actions reverberate through a global scientific community and that we must remain committed as individuals and as a society to the highest standards of scientific integrity in the pursuit of our goals.
Good for this guy.
