    News item: a global warming theory proponent has been fired from a government job for talking to the media (allegedly) without permission. [cached]

    Leading [New Zealand] Government scientist Jim Salinger, an international pioneer in climate change researc, has been sacked for what he says is talking out of turn to news organisations.

    The response from the free-speech-loving Galileo-like global warming skeptics? Celebrate! [cached]

    Anthony Watts: Now if NASA could just get the stones to do this for Jim Hansen for promoting civil disobedience.

    Robinson: I don’t know this fellow, is he a warmist? If so, then this is a very happy story with which to end the week. If not, then this is a very sad story with which to end the week.

    Of course these Galileo-like ‘skeptics’ have a perfectly good ‘reason’ to suddenly withdraw their support for speech. Namely, the reason’s that Salinger was ‘doing advocacy’, whatever that means here:

    CodeTech: Norm Beazer, if you’ll step off the soapbox for a moment… this isn’t about “stifling” someone, it’s about them using their role in a Government organization to advance an agenda. Just as many of these personalities have done and are doing.
