Not Learning From Oscar Wilde
Anthropogenic global warming true believer Michael Mann, lead author of the fraudulent hockey stick graph, sued Dr. Tim Ball in British Columbia for defamation for writing that Mann belonged in the State Pen. more than he belonged at Penn. State. The suit is not going so well for Mann. Here is a short, but full of information, article from the blog the Hockey Schtick.
Mann has apparently still not learned his Oscar Wilde lesson (or the Streisand Lesson) and has recently threatened to sue another Canadian, Mark Steyn, for writing:
Michael Mann was the man behind the fraudulent climate-change “hockey-stick” graph, the very ringmaster of the tree-ring circus. And, when the East Anglia emails came out, Penn State felt obliged to “investigate” Professor Mann. Graham Spanier, the Penn State president forced to resign over Sandusky, was the same cove who investigated Mann. And, as with Sandusky and Paterno, the college declined to find one of its star names guilty of any wrongdoing.
If an institution is prepared to cover up systemic statutory rape of minors, what won’t it cover up? Whether or not he’s “the Jerry Sandusky of climate change”, he remains the Michael Mann of climate change, in part because his “investigation” by a deeply corrupt administration was a joke.
Knowing the power of the discovery process in a defamation suit, many of the Denier blogosphere are saying, sue him! Sue him, ya' pussy! Sue me, too!
Mann, I fear, not only does not know the Wilde rule, but he is also in danger of having to learn the Riddick epigram: "Did not know who he was fuckin' with."
