Michael Mann initiated a defamation lawsuit agains t the National Review and the Competitive Enterprise Institute some time ago, and it has been trudging along int he courts. Two very important decisions came down in the Washington DC Superior Court in Professor Mann’s favor. I’m not going to try to describe this to you because there are others who know much more about these things than I do, but I encourage you to read Climate Science Watch’s summary and update here: DC Court affirms Michael Mann’s right to proceed in defamation lawsuit against National Review and CEI
It is interesting to see the climate change science denialists launching an attack on Climate Science Watch’s post on defamation. They really seem to have no filter. More importantly, however, is that they, the climate science denialists, have no future. I think we are moving past that phase pretty quickly.
