Scientist Michael Mann Commits Contempt of Court in Climate Science Trial of the Century
Back in 2009, “Climategate” was a
massive scandal with leaked documents revealing the climate change scam to be
what it is, the Gateway Pundit reported on this scandal back when the story
Christopher Booker of the Telegraph
back in 2009 slammed the climate alarmists behind the claims of global warming
that were proving to be non-existent. Dr. Michael Mann, the scientist that
co-authored a famous graph of temperature trends known as the “hockey stick
graph” was implicated in the 2009 global warming email scandal, which the
Gateway Pundit previously reported on.
This same Dr. Michael Mann, in 2012,
sued the National Review and Competitive Enterprise Institute over their
critique of his work regarding the climate change hoax. Mann even posted to his
Facebook page about the lawsuit, writing:
“Lawsuit filed against
The National Review and the Competitive Enterprise Institute 10/22/12
Today, the case of Dr.
Michael E. Mann vs. The National Review and The Competitive Enterprise
Institute was filed in the Superior Court of the District of Columbia. Dr.
Mann, a Professor and Director of the Earth System Science Center at
Pennsylvania State University, has instituted this lawsuit against the two
organizations, along with two of their authors, based upon their false and
defamatory statements accusing him of academic fraud and comparing him to a
convicted child molester, Jerry Sandusky. Dr. Mann is being represented by John
B. Williams of the law firm of Cozen O’Connor in Washington, D.C.”
He featured a link to his attorney’s
website just below the above opening statement.

Now, Dr. Michael “Hockey Stick” Mann
committed contempt of court in what is being dubbed the “climate science trial
of the century.” Dr. Mann defied the judge presiding over the case and refused
to surrender his data for “open court examination.”
Principia Scientific noted the
“Only possible outcome:
Mann’s humiliation, defeat and likely criminal investigation in the U.S.”
climatologist Dr. Tim Ball is the defendant in the libel trial and is expected
to tell his attorneys to “trigger mandatory punitive court sanctions, including
a ruling that Mann did act with criminal intent when using public funds to
commit climate data fraud”.
The defeat of Dr. Mann
will only vindicate President Donald Trump in his claims that climate change is
a hoax. The graph below from Principia Scientific shows “Mann’s cherry-picked
version of science [that] makes the Medieval Warm Period (MWP) disappear and
shows a pronounced upward ’tick’ in the late 20th century” – this is the blade
of Mann’s now infamous “hockey stick”.
Below Mann’s graph is Ball’s, which
uses much more reliable and easily attainable public data, which accurately
shows a significantly warmer MWP with temperatures that are drastically hotter
than the modern day’s.
Michael Mann, who chose to file what
many consider to be a cynical SLAPP (Strategic Lawsuit Against Public
Participation) libel suit in the British Columbia Supreme Court, Vancouver six
long years ago, has astonished legal experts by refusing to comply with the
court direction to hand over all his disputed graph’s data. Mann’s iconic
hockey stick has been relied upon by the UN’s IPCC and western governments as
crucial evidence for the science of ‘man-made global warming.’
As first reported in Principia
Scientific International (February 1, 2017), the defendant in the case,
Canadian climatologist Dr. Tim Ball, had won “concessions” against Mann, but at
the time the details were kept confidential, pending Mann’s response.
The negative and unresponsive actions
of Dr Mann and his lawyer, Roger McConchie, are expected to infuriate the judge
and be the signal for the collapse of Mann’s multi-million dollar libel suit
against Dr Ball. It will be music to the ears of so-called ‘climate deniers’
like President Donald Trump and his EPA Chief, Scott Pruitt.
As Dr Ball explains:
“Michael Mann moved for
an adjournment of the trial scheduled for February 20, 2017. We had little
choice because Canadian courts always grant adjournments before a trial in
their belief that an out of court settlement is preferable. We agreed to an
adjournment with conditions. The major one was that he [Mann] produce all
documents including computer codes by February 20th, 2017. He failed to meet
So it's pretty simple--the man-made global warming claims of the far left are as fraudulent as the statistics upon which they are based. Ed.
