One of those realists was Roger Pielke Jr., who was awarded an honorary doctorate from Linköping University in Sweden, the Public Service Award of the Geological Society of America, and the Eduard Brückner Prize in Munich, Germany in 2006 for outstanding achievement in interdisciplinary climate research.

Pielke issued a thread on Twitter that documented facts from the IPCC report that were ignored by the mainstream media:
