Massive counterclaims, in excess of $10 million, have just been filed against climate scientist Michael Mann after lawyers affirmed that the former golden boy of global warming alarmism had sensationally failed in his exasperating three-year bid to sue skeptic Canadian climatologist, Tim Ball. Door now wide open for criminal investigation into Climategate conspiracy.
The fact Mann refused to disclose his ‘hockey stick’ graph metadata
in the British Columbia Supreme Court, as he is required to do under
Canadian civil rules of procedure, constituted a fatal omission to
comply, rendering his lawsuit unwinnable. As such, Dr Ball, by default,
has substantiated his now famous assertion that Mann belongs “in the state pen, not Penn. State.”
In short, Mann failed to show he did not fake his tree ring proxy data
for the past 1,000 years, so Ball’s assessment stands as fair comment.
Moreover, many hundreds of papers in the field of paleoclimate
temperature reconstructions that cite Mann’s work are likewise tainted,
heaping more misery on the discredited UN’s Intergovernmental Panel for
Climate Change (IPCC) which has a knack of relying on such sub prime
This sounds like Mann & Co. are likely to lose their collective ass. And it couldn't happen to nicer people.
