dusanv writes: Lawrence Solomon has a very interesting article about ongoing efforts to downplay the warmth during the Medieval Warm Period on Wikipedia. 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. Is Wikipedia at all a useful reference when it comes to politics and religion?

If in any problem you find yourself doing an immense amount of work, the answer can be obtained by simple inspection.
