Norm Sauer: Worthy Debate—Really?

Heidi Hall, an EPA bureaucrat, and Michael E. Mann, a self-professed scientist of MMGW, after attacking my documented articles and this newspaper for publishing them, claim 97 percent of scientists agree in MMGW, and the only worthy debate is how to prevent catastrophic results therefrom. “Climategate” emails, truth, and facts belie their arguments.
