Professor Garth Paltridge, former CSIRO chief scientist, one of Australia's  most distinguished scientists, has revealed in The Australian how the Australian Academy of Science has cherry-picked data in a recent publication about climate change.

There are more than enough org­anisations already doing that. Perhaps instead the academy could be persuaded to spend its considerable intellectual capital on problems relevant to the ­general conduct of research — ­problems that the climate issue has brought well into the open."
