This is a sad development for academia. A leading contrary opinion in honest opposition to the political hegemony of AGW has resigned her position because of political climate in her field.

She's got a dozen interview podcasts easily found and the take away from most of them is one word: UNCERTAINTY. Never forget: Science + Politics = Politics Can't be otherwise and AGW is the most politicized area of science I know.
