Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

And the motive to "go through official AGU channels" is not to oust a supposed skeptic, but to oust an obstructing editor.

And what does the last sentence say?

Even this would be difficult.

Getting rid of a skeptic is not easy?!!

I hope not.

Being a skeptic should not be a disqualifying trait in and of itself provided that the editor does the job impartially and respects the outcome of the peer review process. However, once the editor's personal opinions start to influence his action, he should be out the door in a flash. However, I suspect that in that case it would still be very difficult to remove him. A natural consequence of science being a cautious rather than a reactionary discipline.
