tomduck writes: The Guardian reports that climate researcher Andrew Weaver is suing the National Post newspaper in Canada in a libel action for publishing "grossly irresponsible falsehoods". The Post claimed he cherrypicked data to support his climate research, and tried to blame the "evil fossil fuel" industry for break-ins at his office in 2008 to divert attention from mistakes in the 2007 IPCC report. This comes fast on the heels of another Guardian article describing lessons learned from the exoneration of UEA scientists involved in the so-called Climategate affair. Are climate scientists finally fighting back against their critics, who they were previously more inclined to ignore?

be a process for them to challenge any inaccuracies."
