Michael Mann slams Morano as ‘One of the worst fossil fuel industry funded professional climate change deniers’ – Calls ‘just so dangerous’

Still, the real villain here is the fossil fuel industry.

“But you do see doomism sometimes used by climate inactivists. Just a couple of weeks ago, after the Glasgow summit, one of the worst fossil fuel industry funded professional climate change deniers, Marc Morano, who has worked for decades to undermine public acceptance of the science and to prevent any action on climate, sent out this mass email where he happily quoted Greta Thunberg claiming that the process was a total failure, that the process is broken, and that there’s no hope. Greta’s heart is completely in the right place, she’s a real leader, and the youth climate movement has been such an important factor in why we’re seeing the progress that we are seeing, which is why we really have to watch out for what we say, because otherwise people like Morano will twist our words to feed this sort of doomist narrative that ‘oh, look, you know, even climate advocates have agreed that there’s nothing we can do. So the game is over’ and that’s just so dangerous.

COP 26 President Alok Sharma, MP hung his head and proclaimed through tears, “May I just say to all delegates, I apologize for the way this process has unfolded and I am deeply sorry.” – Watch COP 26 President tear up

Climate Depot’s Marc Morano: “The UN climate summit’s failure is good news for humanity, science, and a rational energy policy. Despite the tears over the UN’s latest climate failure, the would-be planet savers will continue to strive to regulate and control every aspect of human endeavors from the food we eat, to the energy we use to our transportation to our housing and our economies. While we can savor the moment of this failure by the UN climate forces, we must remain vigilant in defeating the climate agenda.” See:‘Build Bank Bankrupt’: Watch: Morano’s 30 min speech in Glasgow at climate skeptic forum – ‘How many times do we have to save the planet?’

MM is still suing Mark Steyn in DC, going on 10 years of delays by judges. MM hasn’t submitted his discovery, and the judges don’t seem to have any urgency about it. He also lost in Canada; but, as would be expected for a total toff, he has refused to pay the judgement. That shows Mann’s character.

Oh, the hilarity, that Mann et al repeatedly claim anyone who disagrees with their climate porn is funded by the fossil fuel industry. Remember, except for the TOTALLY ISOLATED, 100% of humans across the globe use and benefit from fossil fuels. Eight billion people can’t be in the pay of the fossil fuel industry, but billions of them for good reasons don’t buy into the climate doomsday prophesy. The industry simply supplies products demanded by human societies. So far, no good world-wide substitute has been found and deployed. The best long-term alternative, and possibly the only alternative, is some form(s) of nuclear power, which the greens hate. In fact, their hatred of nuclear power is largely responsible for present day levels of CO2 emissions.

Efficient use of resources? Of course. Wholesale forced adoption of parasitic wind and solar power and electric vehicles? Suicidal.

Well, Zig, you should have zagged. My response to the ever-correct BBC statement that Lapland icing years used to be on a 30-year period, with icing years now becoming more frequent due to climate change was to look it up: A 2008 study of a Lapland semi-nomadic herd covering the period 1959 to 2000 showed that icing occurred approximately every 7th year, not the 1-plus years implied by the 30-year statement.

Since they kept mentioning how expensive it was to round-up the wayward herds in the article, I assume the herders were angling for some government “climate change compensation.” Farmers and ranchers are always bitching about the weather and how it is ruining them as they go to Uncle Sugar for handouts. Your Magic Molecule is good for crony capitalism as well as media, academia and NGOs.

‘Why we are seeing the progress we are seeing’.

Well, sea level rise hasn’t accelerated. Arctic summer ice hasn’t disappeared. Polar bears are thriving. Children still know snow. So that is progress, in a way. Predicted fears have not materialized.

But, the Keeling curve says CO2 is still rising unabated. So Copenhagen, Paris, and now COP26 in Glasgow (per Greta Thunberg herself), were all failures to slow ‘carbon pollution’. And that is progress against climate change/renewables/GND insanity.

So finally something Mann said sort of makes sense, but not in the way he meant.

Progress is an [unqualified] monotonic process. By their metrics, there has (e.g. CO2 emissions, shutdown reliable energy production) and has not (e.g. climate mitigation, redistributive change) been progress. By other metrics, there has (e.g. stand up to …GND insanity, bad [white] bears… what are you going to do) and has not (e.g. sea level rise, arctic ice deficits) been progress. So, here’s to progress.

So Mann actually said this: “. . . which is why we really have to watch out for what we say, because otherwise people [who disagree with us] will twist our words. . .” Such self-censorship is at the heart of political correctness, and the extinguishing of clear and honest speech. But notice – Mann is actually doing what he accuses someone else of. This sort of thing has been seen before.

Where else except in climastrology would someone who is certifiably a tin-foil hat wearer, who claims to be able to see an invisible gas, be applauded as a “real leader?” She is no more a leader than, “He’s not my president,” Biden is. In both cases the MSM has elevated incompetents to the role of “an important factor in why we’re seeing the progress that we are seeing.” I don’t know how much more ‘progress’ from these two the country can stand.

I actually was paid by Big Oil Companies, both Gulf and CONOCO, when I worked in their Minerals Departments. As a member of an Executive Technical Advisory Committee I was surprised at how wide a spectrum of current issues were submitted to the Committee for research. Like “one drop of this chemical in your tank with water and you don’t need gasoline anymore”, where the idea was to capture the “one drop” market if it ever became true. Big Oil Companies exist to deliver profit to shareholders, and are surprisingly introspective in the process.

I’m impressed by what seems to be an unexpectedly high percentage of geologists commenting on this blog. I suspect it has a lot to do with how we were trained. That is, looking at the long view, analyzing sparse data, and entertaining multiple working hypotheses. Those of us getting our educations or working (I’m being redundant) during the transition between the geosynclinal paradigm and plate tectonics learned to live with ambiguity and to be flexible in our views and analysis of data.

I would say Michael Mann is the Chief Shill for Human-caused Climate Change. It’s his baby, and he is promoting it.

Without Michael Mann’s bogus Hockey Stick “temperature” chart, there would be no reason to think humans are causing the climate to warm by adding CO2 to the atmosphere, because the climate is not warming, it is actually cooling.

Michael Mann and his Hockey Stick Team mannipulated the temperature record and changed a cooling world into a warming world in their computers. That’s where the warming world exists, in their computers, not in the real world. Michael Mann does not want anyone pointing this out.

With China, India, and many smaller countries going full speed ahead with coal energy plants the writing is on the wall for the CC narrative. It can’t be hidden. You can’t ignore at least half of the nasty CO2 emissions and hold the rest of the world responsible while wallowing in unreliable energy replacement that destroys economy and lifestyle with an improvable theory. Do they really expect the rest of the world to sit back and allow that to happen?

Narcissists construct a completely logical worldview basesd on – unlike, say fundamentalist Christians, where it is the absolute literal truth of the Bible – the absolute certainty of the correctness of their judgements and conclusions.

Because Mann is 100% right, people who disagree must be mistaken, or lying, and if they are lying, there must be a reason for it.

Since a narcissist craves recognition and the trappings of suuccess – fame and fortune – he must conclude that others are the same. Altruism is simply a concept that a narcissist does not understand.

From there it is a short step only to conclude that climate sceptics are simply weak people pretending to have concerns for the human race merely in order to be noticed, or to make money, because that is, after all, exactly what motivates Mann.He has just got a better set of arguments that have more consensus. Remember to a narcissist the quality of ideas are not that they are true, but, subconsciously, whether they are believed.

In the world of a narcissist, there are no external truths, there is only what people believe.

The game is not about consistency with the facts, it is about the plausibility and success of the narratives.

Mann is not interested in the truth, he is desperate to justify his narrative, that’s all, and condemn competing narratives, The truth doesn’t enter into it, only how much he is believed and noticed.

My own experience of narcissists, is that they realize at some level – probably subconsciously – that the easiest way to be convincing, is to believe utterly in their narratives. Faith substitutes for facts.

Unfortunately, in science, the name of the game is that hypotheses need to be at some level consistent with the facts,

That sums it up nicely.

I find it hard to believe that Mann has convinced himself that he is correct about the temperatures since he deliberately manipulated the data in order to reach his conclusions about the Earth’s temperatures.

Can he block this dishonesty out of his mind? I couldn’t. I think one would have to be a delusional person to do that. I don’t know that Mann is delusional. As far as I know, he’s just dishonest.

This just in:

The climate activist blamed the people for being in his way.

While seriously harmed, most victims are expected to survive. Victims are under intensive care but they exhibit severe apprehension when questioned by reporters. Especially if a camera is present.

The news reporter commented that she’d never seen anyone who is so hyper sensitive and utterly self centered; and that she’d met some of hollywood’s worst me-me-me human wrecks.

Other pedestrians thank their lucky stars that they saw the nearly maniacal looking bald climate activist running towards them and scattered.

I’ve mentioned this item in the Boston Globe by Mann recently but in case you didn’t read it: “Global destruction isn’t funny, but when it comes to the climate crisis, it might have to be”
https://www.bostonglobe.com/2021/12/21/opinion/global-destruction-isnt-funny-when-it-comes-climate-crisis-it-might-have-be/

“Research informs scientists’ assessment of climate risk (our own work, for example, has demonstrated that model projections may be underestimating the extent to which climate change is increasing the incidence of dangerous weather extremes). But when it comes to the action that is required to address the climate crisis, what is really needed is effective public messaging and persuasion. Yet in an increasingly fragmented, polarized, and politicized society, effectively communicating both the warning signs of a destabilized climate and the promise of solutions to the public and political leaders is fraught.”

Gee, the models are understimating the problem? And, when was the climate ever stable?

What signs of a destabilizing climate do you see, Michael?

Michael wants us to think every weather event is a destabilizing sign of the climate. Michael wants to keep his climate change lie alive, so he claims to see catastrophic climate change in everything.

As Napoleon apparently said [paraphrasing]: “Never interrupt your enemy when they’re making a mistake”.

We need to be careful we don’t make it too obvious that the COPs are a lame duck lest they replace it with something much worse. So let’s cheer on the “progress” of the COPs as a way to keep them busy, and otherwise out of our business.

Liar Mann has built a career on lying about climate, so of course he’s going to attack Marc Morano, whose truth-telling undermines Mann’s lies and his career built on those lies.

There isn’t any science that supports human aided climate change. Mann is a liar. Greta is an ignorant tool. Everyone should start a blog blasting those two losers.

It is ludicrous that serial liar Mann criticize anyone for anything.

I will never understand how a “scientist” can create the Hockey Stick and portray it as objective and important.

Blind ambition? Noble cause corruption? Mental disorder?

When I believed in Catastrophic Anthropogenic Climate Change, I rode a bicycle year-round. I doubt Michael Moore has ridden a bicycle in the past ten years.

There is a prevailing belief that some how scientists are always totally objective. The truth is they are human and many will lie and overlook data contrary to their own research. Mann has done research in tree rings and climate which brought him some fame earlier in his career. Like many others he is convinced his data trumps the data that would invalidate his theories. It’s sad really. I spent my entire career working with PhDs. They are brilliant in many ways but they wear their own theories like underwear, very close to their skin and often defend them when they are indefensible. Mann is just that.

Michael Mann is not qualified to judge Marc Morano. Didn’t Mann create his fictional fraudulent Hockey Stick temperature graph that the IPCC embraced as did Al Gore, both of whom jointly won the Nobel Peace Prize for their works of climate fiction?
