    Court: Climate scientist can sue conservative writers over alleged defamation

    Multiple investigations after the email leaks said Mann did not
    commit fraud or misconduct, and his research was backed up by peer
    reviews.

    “Mann could be said to be the Jerry Sandusky of climate
    science, except for instead of molesting children, he has molested and
    tortured data in service of politicized science that could have dire
    consequences for the nation and planet,” Simberg wrote. The Competitive
    Enterprise Institute eventually removed that part, calling it
    “inappropriate.”

    Steyn later wrote that Simberg may have gone too
    far with the comparison. But Steyn said Simberg “has a point,” calling
    Mann’s hockey stick graph “fraudulent,” and labeling him “the very
    ringmaster of the tree-ring circus,” referring to the tree-ring
    observations Mann used.

    Simberg and Steyn argued that their
    comments were protected as free speech under the First Amendment, and
    unsuccessfully asked the court to dismiss Mann’s claims.

    Michael E. Mann Explains His Hockey Stick Graph

    Michael E. Mann is a renowned pioneer in the study of
    climate change and the understanding of how humans impact the Earth’s
    climate. In 1999, Mann and a team of researchers published a graph which
    came to be known as the “Hockey Stick Graph,” now an iconic symbol in
    the fight against climate change.

    In a recent episode of Straight Talk MD, Dr. Sweeny spoke with Michael Mann about his
    infamous “Hockey Stick Graph,” what it means, and the controversy
    surrounding it.

    Chilling the Climate Change Deniers



    Last month, the District of Columbia Court
    of Appeals ruled that Michael Mann, professor of atmospheric sciences at
    Penn State University, could proceed in a defamation suit against
    climate change-denying blogger Rand Simberg. The opinion,
    authored by Senior Judge Vanessa Ruiz, upheld a lower court dismissal
    of a motion by the defense to have the case thrown out at least in part
    on grounds that Mann’s claim was intended to impose costs on and silence
    his ideological opponents. In finding that Mann’s case was “likely to
    succeed” on its merits, Ruiz forced climate change deniers accusing
    scientists of incompetence or conspiracy to reconsider the legal
    ramifications of their rhetoric. Legal experts disagree on whether or
    not this is a good thing.

    WASHINGTON (Legal Newsline) – Dr. Michael Mann’s defamation claims
    against Rand Simberg and Mark Steyn are now going forward in the
    District of Columbia Superior Court.

    The claims arose after Simberg and Steyn wrote their oppositions
    to Dr. Mann’s “hockey stick” graph that depicted a dramatic increase in
    global temperatures during the 20th century. In December, the D.C. Court of
    Appeals ruled that Mann can continue with his defamation claims.

    Simberg’s accusations, written on July 13, 2012, compared Mann’s research to Jerry Sandusky’s child-abuse scandal at Penn State University. An excerpt read, “Mann could
    be said to be the Jerry Sandusky of climate science, except for instead of
    molesting children, he has molested and tortured data in service of politicized
    science that could have dire consequences for the nation and planet.”
