"Scientists Decry Attacks by Skeptics of Climate Change"
"A few years ago, Ben Santer, a climate scientist with Lawrence Livermore Laboratory, answered a 10 p.m. doorbell ring at his home. After opening the door, he found a dead rat on his doorstep and a man in yellow Hummer speeding away while 'shouting curses at me.'
Santer shared this story last week before a congressional committee examining the increasing harassment of climate scientists, and the state of climate science."
