The Lible law in the UK requires the person who made the comment to be able to proove it.
There are a lot of people who want to get Mr Mann to sue them for Lible at which point they will have to try to proove that he is a fraudster. They are confident that they can do this to the point that they are willing to stake all they own on the case (if you lose it generally sends you bankrupt).
It was easy to see that Mann was libeled in the letters post. What isn't easy to see are the "lot of people" who are "confident that they can" prove that he is a "fraudster". Where and who are these people???
I have never seen Mann committing any kind of fraud. I have only seen competent scientific work, and that many people do not like the results. They do not like facts, or the logical progression scenarios of CAGW, and certainly do not want to do anything to mitigate AGW, even though it is the wisest thing to do for future generations.
So they claim the so-called hockey stick is a fraud. They are the denialists. Also known as the business as usual crowd.
Libeling Michael Mann is the least of their crimes.
I consider them murderers of future generations of not only humans, but most other species as well. The crime of preventing emissions reduction of sufficient and timely quantity, is the greatest crime ever done by a relatively small group of humans.
