Ms. Marge Dwyer, Harvard T.P. Chan School of Public Health
Dear Ms Dwyer:
Research-related fraud at Harvard institutions
A series of connected frauds surrounding research into climate change and related questions at Harvard has come to light because an environmental advocacy group had falsely accused Lord Monckton’s distinguished research colleague Dr Willie Wei-Hock Soon of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics of having failed to disclose a funding conflict in a paper in the Science Bulletin of the Chinese Academy of Sciences Dr Soon, like all his co-authors, had received no funding for his research into climate sensitivity modeling.... Your name appears as the contact for a press release at entitled Clean air and health benefits of clean power plan hinge on key policy decisions...a gushing encomium of a commentary entitled US power plant carbon standards and clean air and health co-benefits ...The commentary concludes with the words “Competing financial interests: The authors declare no competing financial interests”. Yet its co-authors have received these grants from the EPA...
Would the School please tell His Lordship, who has standing as Dr Soon’s lead author, how to lodge a complaint of research misconduct in respect of the massive, direct and undisclosed conflict of interest on the part of its researcher Mr Schwartz...?
James Rowlatt Clerk to Lord Monckton
Dear James Rowlatt
Thank you for reminding us that his lordship "has standing" as a Heartland Institute Senior Fellow, as does his co-author Dr. Willie Soon. This makes them both as answerable to Heartland Science Director Jay Lehr PhD as Soon ever was to Harvard-Smithsonian Director Dr. Charles Alcock, whom the viscount accuses of fraud in this illuminating comment on your letter "Monckton of Brenchley
...in the paper he co-authored with us for the Science Bulletin of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (go to scibull.com, click on “most read articles” and we are the all-time no. 1), he was writing about climate sensitivity modeling. None of his funding was for that purpose and, like all of us, he had received not a dime from anyone for that work...
The fraud by misrepresentation of which ...Harvard ..is guilty is an entirely different matter .. The School issued a statement fraudulently asserting that .. its researchers were... “independent”, when in fact, one of those two co-authors, and three others, had received between them the best part of $50 million from the EPA ... "
As Heartland Science Director Lehr has received some $200,000 from the EPA , could you please tell me how to lodge a complaint with the trustees of The Monckton Foundation regarding this massive direct and undisclosed conflict of interest on his lordship's part?
Prompt action to confirm his lordship's amateur status should assure him a warm welcome at the forthcoming Special Climate Olympics in Washington D.C., and reduce liability exposure should the Chinese Academy of Sciences respond to the noble' lord's Science Bulletin publication as it did to Dr. Soon's previous effort, The NIPCC Report:
