I haven't read all the new material yet that my good friends at DeSmogBlog are producing. But I have long been suspicious of the attacks on leading climate researchers, like the recently vindicated Michael Mann, because they are so obviously diversionary, and yet also so obviously strategic. There is no doubt that those attacks have been mounting; I believe a new and full scale "war on science" is afoot in the climate arena, something I hope to say more about shortly. But in the meantime, it appears that following ClimateGate and GlacierGate, we are once again getting some revelations taking on the other side. Maybe this means the pendulum will shift, and good science can move back off the ropes, where it has been for too long. We'll see. I'll be watching closely.
