Defeat rather than disclosure for Michael Mann

I have very lit­tle time so today I want to point you to this story via Stacy McCain at the Amer­i­can thinker about Michael Mann the fel­low suing Mark Steyn et/​all

Mann had refused to pro­duce his data for the court (in sup­port of his own case), claim­ing that it was “pro­pri­etary.” After miss­ing a Feb­ru­ary 20th dead­line, he now finds him­self in con­tempt. Under Cana­dian law, the court is now required to dis­miss the suit.

Tim Bird­now of Amer­i­can Thinker links to this piece which says

Penn State cli­mate sci­en­tist, Michael ‘hockey stick’ Mann com­mits con­tempt of court in the ‘cli­mate sci­ence trial of the cen­tury.’ Promi­nent alarmist shock­ingly defies judge and refuses to sur­ren­der data for open court exam­i­na­tion. Only pos­si­ble out­come: Mann’s humil­i­a­tion, defeat and likely crim­i­nal inves­ti­ga­tion in the U.S.

The defen­dant in the libel trial, the 79-​year-​old Cana­dian cli­ma­tol­o­gist, Dr Tim Ball (above, right) is expected to instruct his British Colum­bia 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. Mann’s immi­nent defeat is set to send shock waves world­wide within the cli­mate sci­ence com­mu­nity as the out­come will be both a legal and sci­en­tific vin­di­ca­tion of U.S. Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s claims that cli­mate scare sto­ries are a “hoax.”

Think about that for a sec­ond and ask your­self this ques­tion. How damn­ing must the “data” be to his asser­tions con­cern­ing “cli­mate change” in gen­eral and his rep­u­ta­tion as an hon­est sci­en­tist if Pro­fes­sor Michael Mann would rather face the loss of his cases in Canada and manda­tory puni­tive court dam­ages rather than let said data be seen in open court?

Would you trust some­one who did this?

I have very little time so today I want to point you to this story via Stacy McCain at the American thinker about Michael Mann the fellow suing Mark Steyn et/all

Mann had refused to produce his data for the court (in support of his own case), claiming that it was “proprietary.” After missing a February 20th deadline, he now finds himself in contempt. Under Canadian law, the court is now required to dismiss the suit.

Tim Birdnow of American Thinker links to this piece which says

Penn State climate scientist, Michael ‘hockey stick’ Mann commits contempt of court in the ‘climate science trial of the century.’ Prominent alarmist shockingly defies judge and refuses to surrender data for open court examination. Only possible outcome: Mann’s humiliation, defeat and likely criminal investigation in the U.S.

The defendant in the libel trial, the 79-year-old Canadian climatologist, Dr Tim Ball (above, right) is expected to instruct his British Columbia 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. Mann’s imminent defeat is set to send shock waves worldwide within the climate science community as the outcome will be both a legal and scientific vindication of U.S. President Donald Trump’s claims that climate scare stories are a “hoax.”

Think about that for a second and ask yourself this question.  How damning must the “data” be to his assertions concerning “climate change” in general and his reputation as an honest scientist if Professor Michael Mann would rather face the loss of his cases in Canada and mandatory punitive court damages rather than let said data be seen in open court?
