Mann : Influencing Policy Isn’t Fun Any More

For many years, Michael Mann appeared more than happy to be a key player in influencing government “climate policy.” He has changed his tune.

Stating that as a scientist, he should, in theory, have no stake in the elections at all, but based on statements that he cited in a recent Washington Post editorial, he essentially has no choice but to fight for his ability to continue his work without harassment. Mann, who is perhaps best known as the originator of the hockey stick graph that Al Gore made famous, described specific threats made against him and other climate scientists by two Congressmen and one state Attorney General should the Republicans prevail in November. Mann was implicated in the so-called “Climategate scandal” as the result of a number of questionable emails emanating from Britain’s East Anglia University

I personally would prefer to see Congress legislate gravity rather than the climate. They could end obesity and have exactly the same probability of success.

    Mike,

    Can you delete any emails you may have had with Keith re AR4? Keith will do likewise. He’s not in at the moment – minor family crisis.

    Can you also email Gene [Wahl] and get him to do the same? I don’t have his new email address.

    We will be getting Caspar to do likewise.

    I see that CA claim they discovered the 1945 problem in the Nature paper!!

    Cheers

    Phil

    Then, poor Mike answers back……….

    Hi Phil,

    laughable that CA would claim to have discovered the problem. They would have run off to the Wall Street Journal for an exclusive were that to have been true.

    I’ll contact Gene [Wahl] about this ASAP. His new email is: xxxx@yahoo.com

    talk to you later,

    mike

    Yeh, no reason to have a hearing or investigate this………nothing to see….move along.
