2003: Michael Mann on questions from McIntyre and McKitrick: A "highly organized industry PR behind this effort"

Email 1741

These folks appear to have some very large industry groups behind them running the show, setting up forums for them on capitol hill (the latest sponsored by the infamous "Marshall Institute") and its best for scientists not to exchange any emails with them--they will only quote you out of context and misrepresent your comments. Please feel free to contact me to discuss further. So I strongly advise against any scientists communicating with these people. Understand that anything you send to them, you are giving to a highly organized industry PR firm that is behind this effort. An investigative reporter in the media may be revealing the dubious details behind this in an article in the near future. Please feel free to contact me to discuss further, mike

Paranoia is such a wonderful thing, particularly when you have feet of clay. What was it that Einstein said, he didn't care that one a hundred scientists sign a petition saying they think he's wrong, he fears one man with a good argument.

I'd say Mike's perception here is about on par with his accuracy rate on other matters. Do you think we could pay him to keep talking and writing letters to the editor for another ten years?

Never mind that a "highly organized PR firm" (Fenton Communications) actually IS behind his mouthpiece site (RealClimate). What a hypocrite.
