EDITORIAL: Global warming’s ‘dirty laundry’
Those who say man alone is responsible for overheating the planet
frequently dismiss any role the sun might play. As can be seen in an
ongoing freedom-of-information lawsuit leveled against the University of
Virginia (UVA), sunshine is precisely what the heralds of climate
catastrophe fear most of all.
The American Tradition Institute (ATI) is going after 12,000 emails sent or received by Michael E. Mann while he was on the staff of the publicly-funded university. Mr. Mann
is famous for coming up with one of the “tricks” used to “hide the
decline” in global temperatures. On Wednesday, ATI released a small
selection of emails it hopes will convince a Prince William County judge
that full disclosure of the rest is in the public interest.
