Is Dr. Michael Mann Canuckophobic?

Do you remember Dr. Michael Mann?

He is a singularly interesting figure in the world of Anthropogenic Climate Change hypothesis.  (In this comment thread on Bishop Hill blog, the field is referred to as ‘Mann-made Global Warming – lol.)

He was one of the central figures in the leaked CRU emails – and of the ‘hide the decline’ fame. (Here is the song..)

Dr. Mann is also the author of the thoroughly debunked ‘hockey stick’ graph – as demonstrated by Steve McIntyre and Ross McKitrick.  Dr. Mann has said some very ‘not nice’ things about this statistician and economist…

Two Canadians.

Canucks!

And, he is in the process of suing Dr. Tim Ball – another Canadian!

Aside – this lawsuit is not going well for Dr. Mann:  as part of the discovery process, he has to hand over for courtroom scrutiny the very data he has spent a decade hiding, or face contempt of court charges and a ruling in Dr. Ball’s favour.  Somebody did not think his tactics through…

But, that is not all!

Now, Dr. Mann has decided to sue National Review for the words Mark Steyn wrote there…

ANOTHER CANADIAN!!!

With all the critics of Dr. Mann ‘out there’ – why is he picking on the Canadians?

Could it be – CANUCKOPHOBIA?

I don’t know – perhaps we should have someone in the sensitivity training field pay Dr. Mann a little visit, just to be on the safe side…

What about those who think everyone is unfairly picking on poor Dr. Mann?

If you don’t think the vast bulk of the criticism heaped upon him is undeserved, please, consider the following:  his Penn State course information contains the following: (H/T betapug)

GAIA – THE EARTH SYSTEM (EARTH 002, Section 2; 3 credits) with the course schedule for days 37 & 38 is : MOVIE: An Inconvenient Truth (Part 1 and Part 2)

 

Yes – according to this ‘scientist’, ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ is Universtiy-level science material!  LOL!!!  When, years ago, I showed it to my kids, my young son actually thought that this movie was made with intentional errors in the science so as to train kids how to spot bad science…and greatly relished pointing the mistakes out!

Come on!

If you want to be taken seriously as a scientist, you really ought to know better than to use such seriously flawed material as a teaching tool…

In other words, perhaps more than any other scientist of our era, Dr. Mann is rather to be ridiculed…perhaps his compulsion for making himself the laughing stock of the scientific community is rooted in the same pathology from which his (potential) Canuckophobia stems.

 

H/T:  BCF, Bishop Hill, Watts Up With That, Steyn, and many more…

P.S.  It looks like Dr. Mann’s legal fund is backed by George Soros, via  Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER) and GAP’s Environmental program…this could add a whole new dimension to the conflict.

    Let’s see here….. we have (i) an internationally renowned climate scientist, whose views align with every major scientific organization on earth, against (ii) a former musical theatre critic turned amateur Muslim demographer whose statistics were panned by every actual demographer who lowered themselves to reading his book and whose prescription for Europe is for white people to breed more.

    Trust me, the only place Dr. Mann is a laughing stock is in the tiny extreme right-wing conspiracy theory circle in which you travel. Which, I might point out, is the laughing stock of the rest of the world.

    LOL!

    • Billy Jo-Greg-Bob Says:

      (i) an internationally renowned… Really? Like the way PBO was internationally renowned for his Nobel Peace Prize for which he did….??? ….every major scientific organization…. including those whose memebers have revolted against their stance? (ii) Funny how truth has no critreria for who may know it.

      …laughing stock of the rest of the world…. Whose world, your very limited understanding of the world?

    • David A. Evans Says:

      Let’s deconstruct this…

      Let’s see here….. we have (i) an internationally renowned climate scientist,

      And Manns degree in Climate Psience is from?

      whose views align with every major scientific organization on earth,

      Scientific organisations don’t have views, people do and when they do not check with their membership about those views, what is their validity? Read numberwatch.co.uk for how the scientific organisations have been taken over.

      against (ii) a former musical theatre critic turned amateur Muslim demographer whose statistics were panned by every actual demographer who lowered themselves to reading his book and whose prescription for Europe is for white people to breed more.

      And these demographers are right because? Oh yeah, they’re demographers, they know and understand all. I suggest you actually look at Islam, I know Muslims who are afraid of it.

      Trust me, the only place Dr. Mann is a laughing stock is in the tiny extreme right-wing conspiracy theory circle in which you travel. Which, I might point out, is the laughing stock of the rest of the world.

      You may be vocal but you aren’t a majority. If this even gets to discovery, Mann is toast.

      • Jim-Bob Says:

        hahahahhahah!!!! I love it. Thanks for the laugh. Just for info purposes, he seems to have obtained his MA in physics from Yale and PhD in geophysics from Yale. And has published 140 peer reviewed research papers. But I guess a musical theatre critic who (I think!) finished high school is equally able to interpret the relevant science. Maybe Xanthippa can lay down some of her science-y skillz and figure it all out for us. Maybe at the same time she can conclusively proof that building 7 was brought down in a controlled demolition. Bwahahahahha!!!

    • Fred Z Says:

      I’ve book-marked this page so I can come back in a year and laugh at you. Steyn is going to destroy Mann if Mann is stupid enough to actually sue.

      In the mean time Mann is about to be held in contempt of court and his credibility utterly destroyed in a similar lawsuit he started against a fellow named Ball. Mann started that one up here in Canada where we have rigorous old school discovery rights and Mann is about to get his decline hides discovered, or found in contempt.

      So, we’ll talk in a year, OK?

  3. Gareth Says:

    The scientific consensus is clear. Mannkind is doomed. The fraud has been exposed, he has not been libelled, he will lose the case and even the AGW zealots will have to abandon him.

  4. Jim-Bob Says:

    Hahahahahahahaa…. climate change conspiracy theorists are hilarious! More comments please! This is like trolling at a creationists website or 9/11 truther site. Hahahahahaha!!!

    Xanthippa says:
    Unlike climate alarmists, actual scientists pay attention to real-life evidence.

    As in, data.

    And, we now have plenty of data to compare to the predictions made by climate alarmists a few decades ago.

    Guess what: the actual data does not agree with the prediction.

    In science, we call this ‘falsifying the hypothesis': that means, proving it wrong.

    Then we throw it on the trash-heap.

    Actual scientists don’t ‘hide the decline’…

    • Jim-Bob Says:

      Yes, we have actual data from many different disciplines, all of which confirms AGW and makes fools of conspiracy theorists like you. Oh noes!!! the soshulists are making it up to take our properties!!!

      Xanthippa says:

      Even the alarmists are beginning to admit they were wrong…

      • Jim-Bob Says:

        Hahahahaha!!! That’s your proof! This was what he had said:

        “Before this century is over billions of us will die and the few breeding pairs of people that survive will be in the Arctic where the climate remains tolerable.”

        No one doing actual work in the field of climate science predicted this and everyone who was would have dismissed it as ridiculous. No wonder he walked it back. Of course, no one, anywhere, has walked back on the premise that rising levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, caused by human activity, are warming the earth. Some ideological conservatives, after arguing that it was a socialism conspiracy, have reluctantly agreed that climate change is happening, but use arguement based in uncertainty of economic forecasting to argue against any action. But then there are some rigidly dogmatic ideologues like you who are going to ride the conspiracy theory to the end. Please do though! It is fucking hilarious!!!

        Xanthippa says:

        Let’s not forget that what passes for College-level science in Dr. Mann’s classroom is watching ‘An Inconvenient Truth’…

        Lubos Motl, one of the leading physicists of our generation, also points out that their physics department promotes quantum loop theory.

        Yeah.

        Not exactly good for their credibility, is it?

      • David A. Evans Says:

        Show me some data that confirm AGW, I’d be interested to see it.

        DaveE.

  5. Fred Jensen Says:

    Jim-bob is kind of funny. Can you get him to come back again?

  6. jazzbo Says:

    Michael Mann is one of the world’s leading claimant scientists.

  7. crljones Says:

    Come-on in any contest involving hockey-sticks – bet on the Canucks!

  8. jonoj Says:

    Mann is jealous of Canada’s ice hockey sticks, therefore wants to sue every Canadian who questions HIS hokey schtick. Confucius say: man with cock shaped like hockey stick cannot puck very well.

  9. gbrecke Says:

    I’d think it would be friends of the review who would be most apt to fund Mann’s legal fund if only he’d promise to follow through with a libel suit!

  10. Jib Says:

    Dr Michael Mann has officially become the laughing stock of the climate science establishment. He is such a deluded egotistical fool that he actually believed his own Nobel Prize fantasies enough to include it in his suit against Steyn. Steyn is going to run him over and use him as a rug. Butt hurt much, Mann?
