▶ The General Public: Why Such Resistance? - YouTube: "(February 25, 2010) Ben Santer, a research scientist from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, discusses the recent problems with the use of the freedom of information act for non-US citizens to demand complete records, including emails, on scientific research projects. Santer posits that this is a dangerous dilemma that will ultimately inhibit scientific research."
The video is 1 hour 46 minutes long. The best stuff is around 42:30 to the end.
Santer uses words like harassment, frivolous, nonsense, hatred, bullies, "forces of unreason", abuse, and McCarthyism. He'd like to get some support/protection from the Obama administration.
Santer at 1:26:37 "Blogging is affecting me profoundly. Obviously, Mr. McIntyre has profoundly affected my life".
