2017 SkS Weekly Climate Change & Global Warming Digest #42

in a four part series, Ari Jokimäki of Skeptical Science shows that the paper very obviously plagiarizes a lot of material: from IPCC AR4, from Wikipedia, other studies, and even the study author’s own book (which itself lifted language from elsewhere).
