Prof. Murry Salby, an American, took a job as Professor of Atmospheric Sciences at an Australian university in 2008. Five years later his resources and travel money had been cut, he was re-assigned to a lowly teaching position and tried in absentia for refusing to countenance that violation of his employment contract, then fired.

All because his research had led him to be critical of AGW theory.

In fact, his work is astonishing in its brilliance. In short, he proves that CO2 follows changes in the temperature both in past climate and modern climate, that human emissions have almost nothing to do with atmospheric CO2 levels, that all increases in atmospheric CO2 are coming from natural sources, which are controlled mainly by the temperature. In other words, the world is an a slight warming trend and CO2 is following it, not the other way round.

Here is Salby's presentation of this research, given shortly before he found out he was fired (Warning: Mathematics and Calculus):

You can't stop the signal, warmists.

He was apparently a risk to their funding efforts.

Newsroom Statement regarding the termination of Professor Murry Salby - Macquarie University
Professor Salby’s employment was terminated firstly, because he did not fulfil his academic obligations, including the obligation to teach. After repeated directions to teach, this matter culminated in his refusal to undertake his teaching duties and he failed to arrive at a class he had been scheduled to take.
The termination of his employment followed an extensive and detailed internal process, including two separate investigations undertaken by a committee chaired by a former Australian Industrial Relations Commissioner and including a union nominee.​

Professor Murry Salby and his dismissal from Macquarie University - MQ Announcements - Macquarie University
Professor Salby's employment was not terminated in any way related to his views on climate science, but rather due to misconduct in two areas. The first was his repeated refusal to teach, over a sustained period of time, in contravention of his contract of employment.

The second reason was inappropriate use of University resources. Professor Salby travelled to Europe during a time when he was obliged to be at the University against direct, written instruction. Furthermore he used a University credit card to pay for the flights through an unapproved agency. This is against University policy.​

A very good lecture. He brought up some very valid points.
I could see how his popularity in the sponsored program office,
would be about like Luther on Roman Holiday.

Well will Lowdown acknowledge his error or will he claim that's just the cover story, or most likely just slink off and abandon his own topic?
