A man claiming to be an ex-CIA agent is busy soliciting any information that would discredit scientist Michael Mann, author of the famous hockey-stick graph that shows the earth getting warm suddenly in recent years. The right-wing climate deniers have been trying to discredit Mann for years, largely because his graph is so persuasive. Mann has been validated and exonerated many times.
