The Other Dr.Mann Court Case

And since I'm on a roll {and because I allowed my original project for the day to be thoroughly side-tracked, by another denialist challenge over at SkepticForum} I may as well add one more "Repost", this one written by Dana Nuccitelli, titled "Mann Fights Back Against Denialist Abuse" - it looks at the other Dr. Mann court case.

Without further ado and with much thanks to Dana and John Cook and all the other volunteers who have made the number one source for non-scientists to become familiar with climate science... as opposed to the misleading and distracting sound-bites our right-wing prefers, here it is:

I don't want to canvass the arguments here, but just to collect links to relevant documents. For case docs, I've tried to source the very good DC Slapp Law site linked above, partly because its pdf's are selectable.

So here is a table of links. I'll try to add to them over time. …"
