    This will be regarded as merely antedotal. Peer review couldn't be responsible for this one. But this does cause one to speculate on the probability of similar happenings in the scientific community. And we all know that all it takes is probability, why one could even propose multiple universes with enough probability.

      Does not apply to the climate issue. When the issue is settled politically as that one was (or as the attempt was) it is not science at all.
      Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

        Well the source that the OP link refers to states that a very large percentage of papers do not get retracted. Though I wouldn't be surprised if we end up finding some papers on climate science that do get retracted.
