An Apology to Willis Eschenbach

November 24th, 2022 by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D.

It has been brought to my attention that I owe Willis Eschenbach an apology, based upon a comment I made on my blog:

“I’ve previously commented on Willis thermostat hypothesis of climate system regulation, which Willis never mentioned was originally put forth by Ramanathan and Collins in a 1991 Nature article.”

Some have interpreted my words as implying that Willis knew of the previously published Thermostat Hypothesis and chose not to reveal it, which would suggest plagiarism. That was not my intention, and I apologize to Willis if my comment made it look that way.
