Michael Mann gives himself a tongue bath

From the unlimited self-adulation department and the Manntastic Television Network, comes this video.

If anyone out there has recently ingested poison, here’s just what you need to induce vomitting.

Meanwhile, while Mann ups the alarm, real-world data shows there is nothing to fear: Inconvenient Truth: Climate-related death risk down 99.6% over 100 years

OMG! Michael Mann is totally blatant. He just doesn’t care about reality, just The Cause.

Only $29 (US – $39.82 Oz) and you, too, can help Mr Mann rack up a few more dollars to save the world.

If he is so concerned why is he not giving these away as a pdf (plus, as we say in Oz, a block of flats in Tasmania plus a free set of steak knives)?

Exactly, saving the Earth is clearly worth sacrificing a few bucks! And of course, he should be living in a mud hut (so no forests will be sacrified for a wood home), he should only ride a horse, never fly in a jet, eat only vegetables. Gee, if God told me to do something to save the Earth, I’d do it. He clearly believes his right- as if God told him. But of course these climatistas are all hypocrites.

Also didn’t click on the video and also went straight to the comments here. I have to guess it is either verbally across the boundaries of good taste (pun?) or visibly so, or both, which is hard for me to imagine. Is there a way to assemble a short outline of it, in a way that I and others won’t lose our lunch from such a description?

Minor point, 4442 is annual CO2 emissions in million tonnes not number of coal plants. And China continues to increase emissions and assist construction of coal plants in the third world.

Being China, they know they can emit as much as they like and the useful idiots of the West will claim the responsibility is ALL THEIRS! What a great play – for China. The West needs to get its act together to counter it – but…Biden….(sigh).

So true. The BBC loves him. I heard him dribbling on there the other night. The nonsense he comes out with is embarrassingly shallow – BBC sucks it down like coca-cola. Win win!
Last summer he had the nerve to lecture us in aus about the cause of the fires. A politically motivated, odious little worm of a man.
Mann truly is the great stomach-turner.

What is the carbon footprint of Manns book?

Assuming it’s a hardback we have 4kg of CO2 -eq per book x the number of books in a normal print run (400,000) = 1,600,000kg of CO2 -eq.

Number of books given away, let’s say 1000
Number of books sold, likely 3 (Loydo, Griff, Simon)
Number of books pulped = 398,997 (say 1,600,000kg of CO2 -eq)

So Manns books carbon footprint for this one book is 3,600,000 CO2 -eq

Way to go Mikey.

Sooooo wrong on soooooo many levels.

But but but, what I see here is simple prostitution.
He is selling himself (his book ostensibly)

So why is he behaving like a cheap hooker?

But lets not denigrate hookers.
They do what they do because they have to do it – because they have nothing else of value to offer society. Or, a dysfunctional society creates the demand for them.
So is Mann

More buts: Actual Hookers are The Most Realistic and Down-to-Earth people you could ever meet. Why’s that?

(Peta, its coz they’re gurlz)
Oooooh yes. How could I not notice :-/

But then, how can a member of The Intelligentsia be so lacking in self-awareness and Value To Society and even worse, be unknowing of same?…..

Simple. Its found in your local food-store, in the bakery section and alcohol aisle.

A-ha. That’s it!

The ‘Poison‘ you mention is ‘sugar’
Mann’s video is a remedy for fatness, stupidity, diabetes, dementia, myriad ‘co-morbidities’ and the Dysfunctional Society

Any willing participant in the mis-use of Greta Thunberg should be facing child abuse charges. That trend is not going to end well as she is not getting the coaching to adapt to a normal life she needs. Aspergers Syndrome, now high-function Autism (due to fMRI studies), has some actual benefits, such as higher IQ and free (and innovative?) thinking.

Greta is likely to be summoned to the Green King’s Palace as Lady in Waiting.

What Mann would do at that Palace is yet to be seen. He could ask Dr. John Schellnhuber, CBE, the great de-carbonizer, what’s it like to be be-knighted.

According to the Prince’s Davos opinion, this is now Year Zero of the Great Reset.
Looks like the Gregorian Calendar has been replaced by the Green Calendar – set your clocks everybody!
Maybe Mann could be the Green-wich Meantime clock-winder in their Clockwork Universe?

The media domination of the global doomsday narrative continues, with the same old tired tales regurgitated relentlessly – as exemplified by the BBC:
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-24021772
The major websites questioning in various ways the ‘dangerous climate change, we’re to blame’ dogma (as far as I see it) are Jo Nova, Watts up with That, Roy Spencer, and Not a Lot of People Know That, plus the Global Warming Policy Foundation.
Hardly internet ‘click bait’ titles, are they?
Not, I suggest, the first place a member of the public might go to.
In my view, the sceptical side needs to get its act together. Grouchy posts on a website don’t achieve anything – people just argue amongst themselves time and again.
How about ‘Climate Lies’ as a good click bait title?
Present all of the tired propaganda, and counter it with referenced facts which anyone can look up – but don’t let the public comment on it. On no account let the trolls in, just stick to the facts.
The power of the internet needs to be harnessed, and in my view it isn’t happening.

with moderate success 2.8milion pages read, but only 138,000 individual people ( we need this stuff to be seen by millions ) sadly it need constant updating… links go dead, stuff is disappeared (as Anthony & mods know well).

I’m old & tired & not computer literate, therefore its hard work for me on my own.

saveenergy – I visited your site, and the first section I looked at was https://www.use-due-diligence-on-climate.org/home/climate-change/scandals-scam-frauds-in-climatology/how-can-we-prove-the-new-adjusted-temperature-data-is-wrong-fraud/ . I’d suggest you look again at your assumption that the volume of the atmosphere is constant, and thus that the gas laws imply no temperature changes. The pressure at any level is simply the summed weight per area of the gas above it, and the actual volume we assign to the atmosphere depends on what pressure we define as the top. Constant average pressure just means that on average the total mass of the atmosphere hasn’t substantially changed. Maybe better to just point people at the Hadley CET (from 1659 onwards) where though it can’t be regarded as global it is at least actually measured rather than inferred from proxies.

As regards the North West Passage, the fact that it had a name and that the Franklin expedition (very expensive for the time) set out to find it implies that it was known to sailors for a long time, possibly many centuries. In the same way, the name for the melted ice in Greenland implies that the modern appearance of such events isn’t actually new and unprecedented. These days, “unprecedented” seems to describe events beyond the memory of the person being interviewed, such as the 13-year’old boy interviewed about the local flooding by the BBC a few years back. “I haven’t seen it this bad in my life!” I should have bookmarked that….

It’s a good site, and maintaining it against bit-rot does look like a big (and largely thankless) task. I’ll point a few more people at it.

Undoubtedly, simili modo, the fact that unicorns have a name implies that they were known to scientists and sailors for a long time. The famous Lost Expedition (Tarquinius J. Lost, D.Phil) had unicorns on their list of things to search for. They surely would not have searched for them if they didn’t exist.

In the comments on the YouTube site- somebody mentioned that Mann hasn’t released his data. Somebody replied to that and said it was released 15 years ago? What’s the fact on that? Didn’t he also fail to release his methods, like software? Just curious.

As I recall, he did release his data for statistical analysis, and the result was that a competent statistical analysis showed how invalid his conclusion was. Since then he has claimed that it is proprietary. When he next tried to sue the statistitian and National Review Magazine he eventually lost the lawsuit because he refused to make his data available again

Everything that needs to said about Michael Mann has been said over and over again. Despite the overwhelming amount of condemnation heaped on him he still manages to find someone, prepared to publish in book form, the product of his twisted and tortured mind?.
With that being the situation far too typical in the world today? What hope for enlightened society is there? When the charlatans continue on, unaffected by valid criticisms, no sense of contrition for past well documented unsound science, people actually being applauded for completely bogus stories, think David Attenborough and tumbling walrus for a prime example. It begs the question.
What can we do to bring the masses back to healthy questioning of the “science”? When having done exactly that, the fraudsters in the AGW movement when found out take absolutely no notice and continue on regardless?

Ingest this…

WSJ
WASHINGTON—The Environmental Protection Agency is issuing new rules that will give preference in future decisions about public health to scientific studies that disclose their underlying data.
Administrator Andrew Wheeler said the changes are aimed at increasing transparency so that the public has a chance to scrutinize findings that underlie major regulations.
“By shining light on the science we use in decisions, we are helping to restore trust in government,” Mr. Wheeler wrote in a commentary published by The Wall Street Journal late Monday. “We want the EPA to be able to say, ‘you can check our work.’”
The policy change, in the works since the start of the Trump administration, has been opposed by public-health experts, scientists and former staff who say it could undermine the agency’s effectiveness.
Many public-health studies rely on information about individual patient health that is required to be kept confidential, which may now exclude groundbreaking health findings from EPA consideration, these critics say.
The rules apply to the EPA’s consideration of “dose-response studies,” used to figure out how much exposure to a chemical or pollutant increases the risk to a person’s health. Those determinations are fundamental to many core EPA rules on public health.

In future decisions, the agency must now give greater consideration to studies in this area in which underlying dose-response data is available for independent validation. And when it proposes new regulations it must make available that science informing the rule to the public.
The rule won’t categorically exclude any data, Mr. Wheeler wrote, adding that the new practices can be applied without releasing personal information or violating confidentiality.
The rule will prevent agency leaders from trying “to cherry pick research to derive politically helpful results,” he wrote. It outlines specific criteria for when the administrator can make case-by-case exemptions to these requirements.
Several scientists and health experts have questioned Mr. Wheeler’s claims and say it is in many cases impossible to require these types of disclosures without violating patient confidentiality. In the end that is more likely just to narrow what research will be considered, they said.
“If left unchallenged, this rule would essentially bar the agency from using the most relevant medical studies when creating rules about air pollution, toxic chemicals, water contaminants,” Chris Zarba, a former director of the EPA’s Science Advisory Board, said in a statement. “The rule…doesn’t ensure transparency in science, but rather is detrimental to high-quality impartial decision-making.”
Mr. Zarba was joined in the statement by other former EPA employees, who say the change will benefit industrial interests by excluding certain types of studies.
They noted the EPA has long had a public-review process for the science it uses, one that includes several review boards and committees of outside experts from academia and industry to ensure transparency and scientific quality.
