In the first issue of a new Indian journal with severe credibility problems.
What the hell?
You have to wonder how badly this is going to turn out for him. Curry has put as much distance between herself and this potential debacle as humanly possible.
what does it say about the BEST papers when mainstream journals which presumably would be fighting over the privilege of publishing, are bypassed and an unknown journal is chosen? something smells very fishy.
JGR Atmospheres was the journal of record when BEST announced that the papers were going to peer review.
so no one wants to bring up the obvious reason why Muller would choose a fourth rate journal ?
could there be a time deadline that they are trying to beat? obviously the original journal that the BEST papers were submitted to was dragging its feet on publishing important documents that were bound to be widely cited but vulnerable to criticism on methodology.
the next (and perhaps last) IPCC report is due out this year! Muller couldnt stand the idea that his baby was going to be shut out of the biggest show in town. unlike the last report which took heavy flak for accepting papers that werent yet published (and in a few cases, never published) the AR5 is actually going to comply with the rules on deadlines this time.
Muller is willing to put up with short term ridicule to insure that his work gets into AR5. just my opinion of course but I cannot see how it was not an important consideration in choosing the lowest ranked journal in the world simply because it has the shortest turnaround time and the flimsiest peer review.
another year has gone by.
does anyone know if the other BEST papers have been published yet?
None that I am aware of....of course the warmist wackos still tout Best as if it were a legitimate piece of research.....well, at least as legitimate as the rest of the bunk they post as evidence to support their position.
They need more money from the Koch Bros to hire the slave Grad Student labor to defend and revise the submissions.. ??????
No sponsor -- no workie???
Muller had trouble getting published because there wasn't anything original about his work. It had all been done many times before. "Denialist who switches sides" might make media headlines, but it doesn't get past peer review, as originality is one of the requirements.
Especially when one considers he was never a "denialist", and was instead a committed AGW supporter from the get go as all of his prior work demonstrate.......oh.... it also appears his work is shit....that might have an effect as well.
LOL. These are the very same people that were informing us how we were going to be crushed by the BEST report when it was finished. And that includes you, Ian.
