The spurious "97% consensus" claim now needs legal protection from being disproven
Anthony Watts has apparently obtained more of the data on which John Cook based his 97% claim and was set to publish an article showing just how disreputable the Cook claim is.
But the university where Cook works has now issued Watts with a threatening legal letter that forbids him from discussing Cook's work -- on the ground that Cook's work is copyrighted!
How Fascist can you get! A claim that cannot be discussed! It tells us most vividly how indefensible the claim is.
Anthony gives the gruesome details here
