Submission + - Wikipedia Bias and Global Warming (

An anonymous reader writes: Climate modeler, one-time Wikipedia administrator, and catastrophic-AGW advocate William M McConnolley has been banned from Wikipedia. He banned users, edited the entries of climate scientists to make them look bad, and edited/deleted pages in order to push his viewpoint, over a 7 year period.

This is important because a lot of people visit Wikipedia for information about Global Warming. If their primary source is Wikipedia, they may have been misled. Original source here
