Associated Press: At first Mann said he didn't call Curry a denier. But in his written not oral testimony he called Curry "a climate science denier." Mann said there's a difference between denying climate change and "denying established science" on how much humans cause climate change, which he said Curry did.

AP: Mann and Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher of California both compared the other side's behavior to the former Soviet Union under Josef Stalin. Mann first raised the Stalin analogy, then Rohrabacher used the comparison four times after that to talk about Mann and other mainstream climate scientists. "For scientists to call names to beat someone into submission, that's a Stalinist tactic," Rohrabacher said.
