Climate Science Legal Defense Appeals – Help Michael Mann

February 29, 2012


The Climate Science Legal Defense Fund continues to receive donations and offers of help from various stakeholders.  [Click here to donate.]

We are actively working with several organizations in order to make CSLDF a one-stop resource for scientists looking for legal resources and we are currently pursuing several educational and legal initiatives which will be made public in the future.

In the short-term, CSLDF would greatly appreciate your financial support to help Dr. Michael Mann. Funds are needed to:

  1. Fend-off ATI’s demand to take Dr. Mann’s deposition, which is a blatant attempt to harass and intimidate him for exercising his constitutional rights by petitioning to intervene in the case.
  2. Defeat ATI’s attempt to obtain Dr. Mann’s email correspondence through the civil discovery process, which essentially is an “end-run” around the scholarly research exemption under the Virginia FOIA law.
  3. Prepare for summary judgment on the issue of the exempt status of his email correspondence under the Virginia FOIA law.

Donations can be sent to CSLDF online or by sending a check made out to PEER, with Climate Science LDF on the memo line to:

Climate Science Legal Defense Fund
c/o PEER
2000 P Street, NW #240
Washington, D.C. 20036

Through PEER, a private non-profit organization organized under Section 501 (c) 3 of the Internal Revenue code, your contribution will be tax deductible.

      about … Heartland?

      I did find this kind of nuts…

      Heartland Environment Policy Advisor ( http://heartland.org/tom-harris ) Tom Harris has been giving us a glimpse of what Heartland may be scheming by developing a special ‘fake skeptic’ science curriculum where blog posts replace scientific method.

      Harris has been teaching a course “Climate Change: An Earth Sciences Perspective” at a Canadian University. A bunch of the academic staff at the Uni got wind that the course might not be all it was cracked up to be and asked to see the lecture videos.

      The resulting report is damning and delivers a blow by blow account of bias, inaccuracy and misrepresentation.
      ( http://www.scientificskepticism.ca/content/climate-change-denial-carleton-university-course-exposed-national-science-team )

      Now I’m all for academic freedom. But all science, even Earth Sciences, require that your theories fit with the body of established scientific knowledge in it’s entirety. If your ideas are in disagreement with established facts you need to be open about those areas of controversy.

      Lecturing a litany of ‘skeptic’ blog talking points as ‘an Earth Sciences Perspective’ isn’t academic freedom, it’s gross negligence and incompetence. Students deserve better from their University.


  4. At his most evil, Gleick was one tenth the evil that James O’Keefe is. I guess if I was a denialist I’d be busy trying to make Peter the story too.


  5. Sebastian…is that 0.10 or 0.095?
