Discrepancy in Scientific Authority and Media Visibility of Climate Change Scientists and Contrarians

Here the authors used a data-driven approach to identify CC contrarians and CC scientists and found that CC scientists have much higher citation impact than those for contrarians but lower media visibility.
Royal Society President Stands Up for Chinese Scientists in the United States

Discriminating against someone because of their ethnicity, turning down a collaboration or refusing a visa for a conference on the grounds of nationality, or simply making someone feel unwelcome because they are an immigrant - these are all morally objectionable and practically counterproductive. Such behaviour must cease.
