There were many quotable moments in my Point of Inquiry interview with Michael Mann. I'll be posting those, and further reflections on the interview, throughout the coming week. But I'll start with a particularly memorable exchange that occurs around minute 34:

Mooney: Can the scientific community fight harder, or must it draw the line somewhere? You've got someone out there like Marc Morano, who is incredibly effective at doing what he does, his website is ClimateDepot, it is very high traffic....the scientific community does not have its equivalent. And the question is, should it, or is that crossing some sort of line?

Mann: Well, it's the old line about getting into a fight with a pig: "you'll get dirty, and the pig enjoys it." There's some truth to that.
