Gosh, what does one do to become a “professional climate change denier”? Does Penn State offer that course? Heh.
He does look happy though. Plus, he has an interesting choice of wall art, I thought sure he’d frame his famous graph. Maybe he has a special room for that. Despite this “exoneration” that according to Sir Muir, didn’t examine the science, his hockey stick still doesn’t hold up to scrutiny.
Here’s the link to the video interview, about 10 minutes long, if you can stand to watch that long.
About 6:45 into the interview Mann blames the current (east coast) heat wave on manmade warming. Of course we all know (because we are repeatedly beaten over the head with the phrase like we’re stupid or something) that “weather is not climate”. Me thinks it’s more about asphalt.
‘Scuse me while I go look for an antiemetic. (mmpf!)
