…tells her colleagues to stop circling the climate wagons around Michael Mann.

This seems to be the nut graf:
For the past decade, scientists have come to the defense of Michael Mann, somehow thinking that defending Michael Mann is fighting against the ‘war on science’ and is standing up for academic freedom. Its time to let Michael Mann sink or swim on his own.

All this has nothing to do with defending climate science or academic freedom.
