Flaws in peer review for climate change

Fred Pearce writes this article. It gives a deeper look into hacked emails that reveal the peer review of the climate change articles. The famous ‘hockey stick’ graph is possibly false, as the jealousy of scientists can affect the peer review process. Fred Pearce is also the author of When the Rivers Run Dry, which is one of the two reading materials that we have read in class.
As scientists peer review the data, if the information contradicts with what the peer reviewer wants in mind, then the information can be skewed. Hacked emails of the scientists reveals this information and leaves doubts about climate change in respect with the ‘exponential CO2 graph’.
