"They are not good-faith questioning of scientific research"

By Phil Plait | October 9, 2010 7:00 am

Michael Mann, subject to a witch hunt about his climate research, speaks out:

What could Issa, Sensenbrenner and Cuccinelli possibly think they might uncover now, a year after the [Climategate] e-mails were published?

The truth is that they don’t expect to uncover anything. Instead, they want to continue a 20-year assault on climate research, questioning basic science and promoting doubt where there is none.

This is a tour-de-force of fighting back against politically-driven climate change denial.

But the attacks against the science must stop. They are not good-faith questioning of scientific research. They are anti-science.

I couldn’t have said it better myself.

Tip o’ the thermometer to Chris Winter.
