PNAS is actually a publisher at the forefront of making scholarly articles more accessible. They were an early adopter of a model to make all historic content available for free, and new content is made free after a 6month embargo. While it might be preferable to have it made available immediately, it is a model that is sustainable and a huge improvement over the commercial publishers like Elsevier/Blackwell/etc Most scholarly publishing is funded in some part by government grants (NIH/DARPA/NSF/etc), and while most research reported in PNAS probably is federally funded, to my knowledge it isnt itself a funding agent nor an exclusive instrument for publishing funded research.

New research published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences tends to now show that ice melt estimates previously calculated for Greenland have not significantly accelerated- as has been previously postulated- nor has the melt contributed in a meaningful way to the rise of sea levels.

Recently, much of the destruction on the east coast as a consequence of Super-Mega-Hurricane Sandy Gore was blamed on the rise in sea-levels, which have been blamed on…drum roll…global warming.

The newest revelation, amongst many in the last several years that have muffled the global warming chants of  “settled science, settled...
