Coby Beck brings word from the Charlottesville Hook that the VA Attorney General, Ken Cuccinelli, has told UVa to turn over every piece of paper Michael Mann ever touched when he was there, including that used in the nether regions. Chip Knappenberger, to give him credit, points out that this is not a good thing,
UPDATE: Steve McIntyre comes in on Chip's side of the register, condemning the Cooch
Sorry, but I can’t agree with Dr. Battig or Dr. Singer on this one.
Cuccinelli is taking things too far. Way too far. This has all the trappings of a witch hunt, plain and simple.
It does not strike me as being much of a stretch that it is not far along this path before scientists at Virginia’s public universities become political appointees, with whoever is in charge deciding which science is acceptable, and prosecuting the rest. Say good-bye to science in Virginia. Who is going to sign up to do it?
but old S. Fred goes nuclear
Eli, being the ever hopeful bunny assumes that Prof. Curry will make a large donation to covering Prof. Mann's legal fees.
