    Well, if there were threats of investigations maybe researchers would be a little more honest and less manipulative about what their results are. Personally, I think the global warming business is a crock. Weather is cyclical. Hell, in my lifetime alone the "experts" have gone from predicting an eminent global ice age to predicting an eminent global warming meltdown of the planet.

    No one's more manipulative than the people that deny AGW. They have to throw aspersions at the scientists and twist the meaning of what they have to say, because they've basically lost the scientific argument and all they have is the political angle. What's so hard to understand about the rise in CO2 over the last ~200 years? The fact that it absorbs infra-red radiation is easily demonstrated in the lab. Therefore, if the trend continues, how can we exprect anything but warming? It's the deniers that are a "crock", because they never completely answer this question, preferring to distract us with talk of volcanoes and dinosaurs!

    What were we doing back in my youth to bring on the predictions of another ice age?

    And Republicans wonder why they are labeled as "anti-science."

    There is, however, evidence that Mann has been involved in stalling FOIA requests and attempts to blackball those who don't fall in line with the AGW fundie orthodoxy.

    Holding suspect those who have abused their standing as scientists is not "anti-science" in any way.

    The AG of virginia is doing his job thats good... If there is a warranted case than so he should do his job.... Good for him...

    This last one "climategate" and his previous "Hockeystick graph" are enough to warrant an investigation at least.... Personally I think you deliberately lie or mislead people using false science, especially from a position of authority, you are a traitor to humanity and should be tried for treason...

    The only people who are anti-science are the fraudsters falsifying data, ignoring FOIA requests, preventing dissenting opinions from being published in scientific journals and taking tax monies from the citizens of the world under fraudulent pretenses...and who would they be?....Why Jones, Hansen, Mann, and a hole host of others of course and I would bet my lifes savings that they are all demorats.!
