The College Fix keeps on doing great journalism. This time, they found that former UCLA professor James Enstrom was fired after debunking an energy regulator’s report on global warming/climate change. Now the school has agreed to settle a lawsuit he filed against them. According to the article:
“The school is paying the “diesel particulate matter” expert $140,000, reinstating his title as “Retired Researcher,” and restoring his access to UCLA resources, “effectively” rescinding his termination, according to the American Center for Law & Justice, which represented Enstrom.
Enstrom had challenged the validity of a California Air Resources Board study on diesel particulate matter and mortality in the state and the regulations that followed. He denounced the research as a faulty reading of data.
UCLA retaliated against Enstrom after he “became an aggressive and lone critic at UCLA of air pollution research,” escalating in 2008 after he testified in California Senate hearings, according to alawsuit filed by the center in 2012.”
