Chris Horner posted a video on Facebook a few a hours ago where he reviews and brings us up to date on the efforts by the University of Virginia faculty to defy the law of the land by refusing to release taxpayer-owned documents surrounding Climategate.
There must be some something really embarrassing that needs to stay hidden, no matter the cost, as Mann and the faculty appear awfully desperate in their attempts to defy the Freedom of Information Act. Chris Horner states at the 12:18 mark:
Those people who don’t like us asking for the records have a problem with the law, and they have a problem with the University of Virginia complying.”
Mann and the faculty are applying a pressure campaign against the University in order to keep the public records under wraps. Horner:
The UVA said to us that they find themselves in a very difficult position with their faculty. And we pointed out to them that this difficult position they find themselves in is between their faculty and the law.”
And judging from Steve McIntyre’s latest post, Mann’s desperation is visible throughout his book, and reveals a person on the verge of losing it. Whenever you start getting paranoid ideas that the fossil fuel industry is and is out to get you by orchestrating a few blog sites, then you really have got to wonder. Not only has Mann run out of lies, but he is resorting to re-lying, as McIntyre points out. Mann s becoming a serious embarrassment to Jefferson’s university.
