I don't think the hysterical tone of the reviewers of Michael Mann's forthcoming book are doing the author any favors. Discussion, preferably rational discussion, is a part of the scientific process, and Mann will I hope be defending his hockey-stick graph with the objective rigor his interesting hypothesis deserves. As for his well-funded opponents, mentioned several times by the reviewers--can anyone tell us how much research grant money Dr. Mann is receiving? is it possible that he is also well-funded, by tax-payers' money underpinning scientific research grants? Can we also infer that if his hypothesis does not stand up to scrutiny, that his funding, fame and power base are in danger of drying up? I trust that these considerations will not interfere with Mann's objectivity, and that in his new book he will be clearly explaining the statistics underlying his interpretations, which many have called into question. If so I look forward to reading the book in March.
