Libertarians who feel that their personal liberty is threatened by industrial climate disruption are more susceptible than most to confirmation bias and motivated reasoning. That’s why so many libertarians deny the reality of industrial climate disruption.
Climate scientist Michael Mann has sued the Competitive Enterprise Institute and the National Review for defamation over statements that accuse Mann of scientific misconduct and that compare him to convicted child molester Jerry Sandusky.
One of the many factual errors, misunderstandings, and misleading claims (I counted at least six) in a Wall Street Journal commentary denying human-caused climate disruption was that only four of the 16 co-signers had published on climate science, and only one has published anything significant on the topic recently.

When the CRU emails were published, Pennsylvania State University (PSU) received many emails and letters accusing paleoclimate researcher Dr. Michael Mann of various types of research misconduct. PSU assembled the various informal accusations into a set of four allegations and began an internal investigation into Mann’s activities. Three of the four allegations were dismissed by […]
S&R interviewed Martin Vermeer, first author of a recent Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences paper on sea level rise, about how much context the published CRU emails contained.
