Chris Horner sends us another Michael Mann Email from the NOAA FOIA release. One should remember this statement from Dr. Mann before continuing:
Mann: ‘I always thought it was somewhat misplaced to make it a central icon of the climate change debate’
Hmmm. “Somewhat misplaced”, “pretty cool” and the stuff of prideful circulation, it’s all good but, well, which time were you telling the truth about icons?
The picture he was disapproving of/”thought it was pretty cool” as the IPCC icon…well, that is, apparently depending on to whom he is speaking, or what his needs of the moment are…was this, as you’ll see from the link he circulates with such pride and joy:
Now read the email:
Mann circulated an email to his coauthors for MBH98 (Bradley and Hughes) to tell them about it:
I thought you might be interested in this, from today’s BBC:
Not to slight Sir John(!), but its actually the chart in the background I’m referring to :)
Hughes sent a humorous reply to Mann:
Highly cool! – pity about the ugly old guy in front!
Mann replied with this:
Hey, that’s Sir John you’re talking about! And a fellow brit, no less! I thought it was pretty cool too. I’d like to know what he was saying about the chart!
Here is the original as a PDF: Mann thinks HS as IPCC icon pretty cool
Not earthshaking by any means, but it is funny. The earthshaking stuff will come out in the upcoming discovery for Mann -vs- NRO.
