There is no other place in the world like America. It is the only country that can lay claim to the mantle of richest in the world, and it is also the only country that fosters the organized harassment of climate scientists. Like jazz, sitcoms, and hip-hop, systematic attacks on climate scientists are an American original.
Inside Climate News reports:
The harassment faced by U.S.-based climate scientists has been well documented in the media—but not the harassment of scientists in Europe, Canada or the rest of the world.
That's because there hasn't been much to report.
While outspoken scientists of human-caused climate change in the United States endure torrents of freedom of information requests, hate mail and even death threats from skeptics, their counterparts abroad have been free to do their work without fear.
