Do it, Dr. Mann

One of the joys of the Malthusian Catastrophists is that they will not debate their theories, nor will they willingly provide info. All is ‘settled science and the consensus’.

Dear Dr. Mann of same has threatened Mark Steyn and National Review with a lawsuit following an article by Steyn. Responses below. Many skeptical types like myself pray that he will go through with it, as we have waited YEARS for anybody associated with the AGW flim-flam to be hauled into a court of law and examined under oath, with discovery and the like contributing.

Popcorn all round.

    Isn’t the same Dr Mann currently losing a libel case in Canada because he will not provide the information the court has requested to make a judgement?

    It does seem he is rather ignorant of how the law works – mind you, if you are in a position where you can fix most of your problems by emailing your colleagues (I doubt many of them are his friends…) to agree a line of attack, rather than doing good science, you may expect that to extend to the courts as well.

    Watchman. Dunno about “losing” (yet), but, yes, Mann is stalling on the disclosure of various documents. We live in hope. I used to trust scientists once upon a time…

      I still trust scientists – it is those who tell us that ‘science’ says we must do something you cannot trust. Science cannot give us advice – only hypotheses, results and proofs, which still need to be interpreted. The modernist thought-process tends to assume that the results of science are truths, but this tends to miss the point that they are truths only within the contexts of their experiment/model, and still need to be regulated in the world.

      As to the court case – stalling on disclosure is not a good technique for actually winning, but you never know. Mind you, he probably can’t win without disclosure, and presumably he does not want something to be seen if he is stalling, so you’d have thought he’d have learnt his lesson. Even activist judges in the US respect the rule of law enough that they require disclosure after all (if only because they don’t want their judgement overturned on appeal…).

        Agree. Science is a humble search for the truth about how the universe works, as best we can manage it. The rest is politics.

    You still should.
    It might appear that this Dr Mann is not, actually a scientist?
