Michael Mann Ignores Historical Evidence

Editor:

It a appears that Michael Mann, a Penn State meteorologist, has a habit of defaming those who oppose him. He’s not only doing the same to me, but he has claimed that the “stolen e-mails” from the University of East Anglias Climate Research Unit still don’t alter the evidence for climate change.

That’s a lie. He has trashed Patrick Michaels, a well known and respected expert on climate and the environment, along with numerous other experts who criticize him.

I would like to refer Prof. Mann to “Nature, Not Human Activity Rules the Climate.” This is a summary for policymakers, (NIPCC) non-governmental international panel on climate change.

Science and Environmental Policy Project, April 2008 Pages 2 and 3 state the following. The so-called “hockey stick” diagram of warming has been discredited.

Another claimed piece of evidence for AGW is the assertion that the 20th century was unusually warm, the warmest in the past 1,000 years, compared to the IPCC’s Third Assessment Report (IPCC-TAR 2001).

The IPCC’s report no longer emphasizes the hockey-stick analysis by Mann (figure 1) which had dismissed both the Medieval Warm Period (MWP) and the Little Ice Age (LIA). On page 2 of the above (NIPCC) it is stated; In his classic, “Climate History and the Modern World,” H Lamb (12983) traced changes in climate since the last big ice age ended about 10,000 years ago.

He found extensive periods warmer than today and cooler than today. The last warm period ended less than 800 years ago.

Lamb concluded that generally, warm periods are beneficial to mankind and cold periods are harmful. Yet the (AGW) global warming advocates such as Prof. Mann have ignored Lamb’s conclusions even against historical evidence.

During the (NIPCC) the 2009 International Conference on Climate Change, in New York, N.Y. 2009, Vacdav Klaus, president of the Czech Republic and former president of the European Union, delivered of the opening address at the conference in New York in March 2009.

He asked for the global warming advocates to explain “why the global temperature increased from 1918-1940, decreased from 1940-1976, increased from 1976 to 1998 and decreased from 1998 to the present, irrespective of the fact that the people have been adding increasing amounts of CO2 to the atmosphere.”

He also states that global warming advocates are not interested in temperature, CO2, competing scientific hypotheses, nor in freedom or markets. They are only interested in power, monies and distribution of the world’s wealth and a one world government.

I feel so honorific by receiving so much attention by such a schmoe scholar as Prof. Mann, with all his liberal propaganda. I would like to inform Prof. Mann, that I am not just any Arizonan bumpkin, that just fell of the turnip truck, concerning global warming, like so many of your comrades have.

Brilliant statement

Nancy Pelosi’s most brilliant statement ever. We must pass the health care bill so you can see what’s in it. Brilliant! Brilliant! Pelosi’s, stupid is as stupid does. Maybe she has had too many face-lifts and has got her skin so tight that it has affected her brain, that is if she has one.
