Blog: Michael Mann vs. NRO and Mark Steyn: It's Time to Rumble
...In an article for American Thinker, Marc Sheppard called Jones' admission "climate fraud". He was correct. There is no other responsible way to interpret the facts. It prompted Eduardo Zorita, a senior scientist at Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht's Institute for Coastal Research, to call for barring Phil Jones, Michael Mann, and Stefan Rahmstorf from further IPCC participation. He was correct, as well.

Given the facts of the case, it's more than a little peculiar that Michael Mann would sue anyone for defamation of character. Why he chose to aim his animus at NRO and Mark Steyn instead of the host of others who have condemned his work is a mystery, but this much is clear: the "science" behind the argument that man-made CO2 emissions are the cause of "global warming" is suspect at best.
