The editor-in-chief of the journal Remote Sensing has resigned over the publication of a paper questioning the reliability of climate models.

Wolfgang Wagner of Vienna University of Technology concluded that reviewers of the paper, published 25 July in the open-access journal, failed “to identify fundamental methodological errors or false claims,” and the paper “should therefore not have been published.”
