A 2008 paper that criticized scientific support for global warming has been retracted, according to ScienceInsider. The study, published in Computational Statistics and Data Analysis and based on a controversial 2006 report on global warming commissioned by the US Congress, concluded that climate scientists favorably publish one another's work because of too-close collaboration and questioned whether global warming was real, notes USA Today. The paper has been retracted because of plagiarism -- excerpts from Wikipedia and two textbooks appeared without citation in the paper's introduction, according to the retraction notice.
