Catching Up With Mark Steyn’s Trials and Tribulations

Steyn doesn’t pull any punches, even during ongoing litigation.

So Willie Soon wound up on the front of The New York Times, and Mann & Co may yet succeed in destroying him. Yet, even if they don’t, they’ve taught a valuable lesson to any young scientist minded to co-author a paper with Christopher Monckton.

But then they figured: Hey, why stop there? It’s pretty exhausting taking the hockey stick to every punk who steps out of line on a case-by-case basis. Maybe we can get a group discount, and take a big bunch of them out in one fell swoop.

Enter Raúl Grijalva, Democratic Representative from Arizona and Ranking Member of the House UnEnvironmental Activities Committee. Commissar Grijalva has targeted seven individuals for investigation – Robert Balling, John Christy, Judith Curry, Steven Hayward, David Legates, Richard Lindzen, and Roger Pielke Jr. What crimes did they commit? Well, let Grijalvaexplain:

As Ranking Member of the House Committee on Natural Resources, I have a constitutional duty to protect the public lands, waters and resources of the United States and ensure that taxpayers are able to enjoy them. I write today because of concerns raised in a recent New York Times report and documents I have received that highlight potential conflicts of interest and failure to disclose corporate funding sources in academic climate research…

My colleagues and I cannot perform our duties if research or testimony provided to us is influenced by undisclosed financial relationships.

Likewise, the electorate cannot evaluate Grijalva’s performance of his duties if it’s influenced by undisclosed relationships. So who put him up to it?

  1. Lawyers ain’t cheap. Please go to steynonline and send Mark some $ or buy a book or mug. He is a warrior like Breitbart and he needs our help.

  2. So I’m not understanding a few things. I’m no attorney, but owning a biz as long as I have Ive been through some interesting litigation. What I’ve learned is the best way to win is go for the throat. Where’s the defimation of character law suit? Also what could be on trial here is legitimate data. Scientific data is pretty damn easy to legitimize. I don’t think Marks on the offensive, and he should be. I’ll send him some money because I know he’s not stupid.

  3. Living in a state which continually re-elects Juan MuhCain is bad enough, and then we have Raul “Greasy” Grijalva.

    He isn’t “feral” but he is a Marxist Pig, and so is his daughter, Adelita, who runs the Tucson School Board like her own personal fiefdom.
