Day 2: NZ Climate Science Coalition vs. NIWA

Quote of the day from New Zealand’s National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research:

The matters [at issue] arise between the plaintiff’s (the Coalition’s) Statement of Claim (SOC) and the Defendant’s (NIWA’s) Statement of Defence (SOD). NIWA counter-claimed they had no obligation to pursue excellence or to use best-quality scientific practices and also that the national temperature record was not only not official, but they themselves had no obligation to produce or maintain it.

    Would love to see Mann, Hansen, and their organizations put in the same position.
