Can we now agree that the climate peer review process is biased?

Think anyone feels the heat?
UPDATE #3: At the end of the Guardian article, it says Andy Dessler has a paper coming out in GRL next week, supposedly refuting our recent paper. This has GOT to be a record turnaround for writing a paper and getting it peer reviewed. And, as usual, we NEVER get to see papers that criticize our work before they get published.
Spencer’s announcement that his paper was published July 25, 2011. GRL rebuttal will be published next week Sept 10 2011, senior editor preemptively resigns. What is that, about 6 weeks from publication to accepted rebuttal. Talk about fast tracking.
I wonder if anyone from AR5 felt the heat from Spencers results. How about a show of hands, which editor would like to publish Dr. Spencer’s inevitable reply?
