hot temperaturesClimate change skeptics say they're not surprised at claims that a climate reporter was fired for questioning the science behind climate change.

Mish Michaels was working as a science reporter for the "Greater Boston" program on WGBH, but the Boston Globe reports she was let go after having "questioned the evidence that human activity was causing global warming."

Dr. Pat Michaels, a climatologist for the Cato Institute, calls it shameful it she was terminated for her analysis of climate change.

"Because the folks at WGBH could actually really do their listeners a service," says Michaels, "by having a science reporter who could dig into the climate model forecast versus what's happening. And they would discover it's not very much like it's supposed to be. It's supposed to be warming up much faster than it is."

If you take a look at the latest monthly climate record from the University of East Anglia, Michaels says it appears very much like we're going back into a pause.

Marc Morano of Climate Depot alleges this is a concerted effort that's been going on for years.

"American Meteorological Society has been trying to sort of rein in their skeptical members," he says, "and this is one of the paradoxes you get."

There is a claim of 97-percent consensus among scientific organizations, says Morano, but talking to rank-and-file scientists shows that many of them remain skeptical that mankind is causing the earth to warm.
