Lastly, the politics surrounding climate change has made the field extremely hostile for any career academic that dissents from the party line. Judy Curry retired from her tenured position because she got tired of the abuse she received for advancing opinions which she felt were justified given the state of the scientific knowledge. She did not have to retire - she could have simply ignored the scientific evidence as she saw it and continued on but her scientific integrity would not allow her to do that.

ya ya, your darling 'Crazy Aunt Judy' has gone walk-about!  ;D And here I thought I read references suggesting she had become a pariah 'on campus'... that few students were interested in her teachings, that she was a liability for any students pursuing masters/doctorate. She, the ready Congressional committee go-to for charlatan/denying Republicans! Just a few of her gem statements in regards her 2017 "retirement":
Once we get over this little bump of activism, if the Trump administration will put us on a slightly reassuring and saner footing, that will allow all this to die down. We can always hope.

I no longer know what to say to students and postdocs regarding how to navigate the CRAZINESS in the field of climate science
