In 2010, Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli filed a law suit against  University of Virgina (Mike Mann Climate Gate Professor) who received nearly half a million dollars in research grants to do research on the climate of the earth. The research concluded that global warming is related to human activities, particularly the burning of fossil fuels.  

The controversial stems from Manns critics who claim that "he" used the controversial "hockey stick graph" which contends that global temperatures have experienced a sudden an unprecedented spike in recent years -the graph is in the shape of a hockey stick.  Professor Mann is director of the Earth System Science Center at Penn State. 

In researching the case, Cuccinelli discovered an email in which one researcher expressed an interest in punching Charlottsville-based doubting climate scientist Patrick Michaels in the nose.
