I just realized that there are at least 18 articles and reports attacking the famous Dr. Willie Soon, a Malaysian-American scientist at the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, in late February 2015 alone. Heartland Institute put a section about Willie alone, https://www.heartland.org/willie-soon. The various articles attacking him, and articles defending him, are posted there.
Yesterday, Willie replied, posted in WUWT, and I am reposting it below.
Willie is a cool guy, I have met him twice, in NYC in 2009 and in Chicago in 2010, during the Heartland's 2nd and 4th ICCC, respectively. Our photo in 2009. From left: Barun Mitra (India), Willie, Jose Tapia (Peru), me. We were the very few non-Caucasian guys in that conference.
