Russ Harding, senior environmental analyst for the Mackinac Center, is cited in Reporting Michigan on the recent revelation that e-mails regarding research on "man-made global warming" may contain information that shows scientists massaged data to downplay evidence contrary to their views.
Harding said the reason people may have done this is money. "Climate change has become a huge business for researchers. They are not going to get funded if they come back and say there is no evidence of man-caused global warming."
The most recent issue of MichiganScience includes a book review of "Climate Change Reconsidered," which examines the overall issue and critiques the methods used by those arguing in favor of anthropogenic global warming.
Harding also recently wrote about some of the problems surrounding data that has been used in formulating global warming claims.
