Climate auditor

By ,

Stephen McIntyre is the Toronto-based editor of Climate Audit, a blog that brings a critical perspective to climate data. He was recently profiled in this Macleans article and in a Toronto Star piece this weekend. Interestingly, according to the article, McIntyre was mentioned over 100 times in the Climategate leaked e-mails from the University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit. The suggestion is that McIntyre’s work is one of the motivations behind the suppression of data by climate change advocates involved in the scandal. Fans say he at least has the merit of holding scientists accountable — never a bad thing.
