Michael E. Mann: "The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars: Dispatches from the Front Lines"

The famous climate scientist Michael E. Mann has written a soon-to-be published book titled The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars: Dispatches from the Front Lines. At the end of his forthcoming book, Dr. Mann describes the fake November 2009 "Climategate" scandal, which erupted after hypocritical cyber-criminals who called themselves "honest men" hacked into the server of that the University of the Climatic Research Center (CRU) at the University of East Anglia, stole climate scientists' emails, and posted them on the Internet.

The criminals hoped to ruin the scientists' careers by mischaracterizing the meaning of their emails, but I read what actual scientists are writing about climate change and soon concluded that the criminals were the liars. So far, the British authorities have not identified the culprits.

Attorney General Cuccinelli even tried to force the University of Virginia to hand over Dr. Mann's emails by claiming that they would show that he had defrauded the taxpayers.

Cuccinelli, an arrogant demagogue who grandstands for the Tea Party movement, is the one who should be investigated for fraud against taxpayers. I think that Cuccinelli gets money from the fossil-fuel interests in exchange for persecuting climate scientists. Cuccinelli's own father is a career lobbyist for the natural gas industry. His company gave the Attorney General 96,000 dollars according to information posted on the Internet.

I think Cuccinelli is a dangerous political gangster, not a law officer. He has hijacked the Attorney General's office in order to persecute climate scientists whose research threatens the profits of the fossil-fuel industry; however, when he attacked Dr. Mann, Cuccinelli was barking up the wrong tree!

I have learned from "Climategate" that the Republican Party that I used to vote for is nothing but a pack of cynical liars who persecute scientists on behalf of their financial donors.
