Academic Freedom vs Collegial Obligations

Source: WUWT

Dr Jennifer Marohasy, writing of Professor Peter Ridd's court case, (here) says:

The case may be fought on legal interpretations of his obligation as a university employee to be collegial and discrete versus his right to academic freedom. This avoids the need to consider the two truths at the heart of this matter
  1. The Great Barrier Reef may be in good health, while
  2. Our academic institutions may be rotten to the core.

Also consider Peter's video on Jenn's blog (https://jennifermarohasy.com/2019/03/two-truths-at-the-heart-of-peter-ridds-sacking/ )
As Jennifer writes:

The issue of academic freedom is certainly an important one. As Peter Ridd explains in a YouTube video launched today at my blog, universities are now run by administrators who take an increasingly conformist and corporatist approach. 
This is fundamentally alien to the approach of the true scientist that must be logical, evidence-based, and always tolerant of the alternative perspective because fundamental to science is the potential for falsification.

Energy & Environmental Newsletter: March 4, 2019

By  

-- March 4, 2019

The Alliance for Wise Energy Decisions (AWED) is an informal coalition of individuals and organizations interested in improving national, state, and local energy and environmental policies. Our premise is that technical matters like these should be addressed by using Real Science (please consult WiseEnergy.org for more information).
A key element of AWED’s efforts is public education. Towards that end, every three weeks we put together a newsletter to balance what is found in the mainstream media about energy and the environment. We appreciate MasterResource for their assistance in publishing this information.
Some of the more important articles in this issue are:
The Greatest Scientific Fraud Of All Time: Part XX & Part XXI
Good collection of PragerU videos on Climate Change
Short Video: Science Is Falsifiable

Greed Energy Economics:

Turbine Health Matters:
