Efforts seems to be lead by one of the member of, William Connolley, who is connected to the protagonists of the Climategate e-mails and is mentioned in a couple of them. He edited several thousand articles and removed hundreds of them so suit his point of view about climate science, banning lots of contributors in the process.
