Climate Scientist Michael Mann Denies He is a Sex Symbol

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

h/t Dr. Willie Soon, Climate Depot – In the wake of Leonardo DiCaprio’s performance in “Don’t Look Up”, Michael Mann has gone all coy about whether DiCaprio’s portrayal fully corresponds with his life as a scientist whose warnings have been disregarded.

Words fail me.

[Prepublication addendum from Charles]

If Dr. Mindy is based on Mann, then we should note the description of Mindy by the character Peter Isherwell, who told Mindy:

You’re a Lifestyle Idealist.

You think you’re motivated by ideological beliefs, but you’re not.

You run towards pleasure.

You run away from pain, like a field mouse.

Your death will be unremarkable and boring.

You’re going to die alone.

quotes slightly paraphrased to condense.

Sure Dr. Mann he’s just like you.

She is attractive. But that’s it.
Everything else negates that, though. To list just a few of those negations:

  • Her ego.
  • Her obsession with social media.
  • Her poor intellectual skills.
  • Her poor relationship skills.
  • Her poor political career.

More often than not, for attractive women (and men for that matter) attractiveness is the ONLY good quality they have.

Familiarity with, and attachment to, certain characteristics throughout a persons (early) life contributes to the things they find attractive.

Science Mann denies:
Every 1km squared by 11km squared is 10,784,313 grams of which 4497 grams is carbon dioxide. Far infrared (2898 (half suns temperature in kelvin) divided by 15 micrometer (193.5K))) CO2 absorption. Earths heat is longwave radiation 8-14 micrometers, the transparent part of the spectrum. CO2 and other gases absorb much shorter waves heating the stratopause in polar regions where sunlight is 24hrs. The difference between 24hr darkness polar region and 24hr sunlit polar region at 10hpa is 158 watts. Fake science has 158 watts added to the 240 watts of sun energy. Actual measurements has it just over 100 warts. If the human body didn’t have 1 bar pressure, the atmosphere would crush us. These scientist think a fictional film about a asteroid hitting earth equals the damage carbon dioxide can do to the planet. Shows how far from reality they really are.

Mickey Mann is not so much a broken record as a broken ideologue.
The idea that anyone could imagine Di Caprio framed his role in order to present a hidden sexual beast in his science mentor Mann, is so disturbing to even imagine, I am reaching for the sick bucket as I write this,
If as Mann tries to suggest, the film was a strong aid to enliven peoples attitude to Climate Change risks, then he is as far away from reality on this as his interpretation of Bristle cone pines was/is.
On the plus side, Mann has said something truthful when he denied the sexually attractive title, applied to him. Full marks for honesty Michael try to reproduce that nice warm feeling of honest reflection more often. You never know, people might come to actually like you….. 🙂

DiCaprio’s character was portraying an altruistic, honest person. Michal Mann is a liar and a deceiver of the world when it comes to Human-caused Climate Change.

DiCaprio would have to be lying about a comet strike, the way Mann lies about Climate Change, in order to portray Michael Mann properly, and in character.

Michael Mann hasn’t published any science at all since his work with lanthanide ceramics in the early 1990s. Everything else has been pseudoscience. At least his version has sophisticated math. But then, a fully formed astrology must include relativistic mechanics.

Since The MannChild™ also probably didn’t lie about his name, that’s a

2100. WOW!!! That must be a world record of some kind, probably worthy of

Mikey says the film is prescient because it shows the same sort of anti-science playing out with COVID 19. Now conspiracy nut Mikey blames global warming ‘anti-science’ squarely on Big Oil. So the question is, Mikey, who is behind COVID 19 ‘anti-science’?

MSNBC missed a trick if they didn’t approach anti-nausea medication manufacturers to run a commercial after this segment.

Mann & DiCaprio — this CDN prairie boy, still LOL at their connection. DiCaprio making a movie in Alberta continues to pontificate about the dramatic temperature change over a 24 hr period claiming it was due to Climate Change. The phenomena is so common, Indigenous have a word for it – Chinook – Which all Albertans use today.
Since the phenomena doesn’t happen in Mann’s Pennsylvania, it must be due to climate change

Pat from kerbob
Reply to  Bob Hunter
January 7, 2022 11:02 am

Yes, here in AB they are common
We may even get to +15c Monday and Tuesday if the jet stream bumps enough, after a few weeks of -30.

Chinooks and the winds associated can be brutal, I have seen -35 to +10c in 1 hour, and then the associated car accidents due to warm moist air blowing over roads and bridge decks that are 40-50c colder forming a sudden layer of frost where moments earlier was clear dry pavement.

DiCaprio story on the Revenant is not complete until you relate the punch line, that Mr Climate Emergency flew his entire movie production to Argentina just to get some final shots with snow after the alberta chinook melted it here.
How much CO2 did that emit?

That is the story, pure hypocrisy, or galactic level of unawareness.

He is a celebrity UN climate change ambassador who has called the issue ‘the most urgent threat facing our entire species’.

But while he urges fans to take action, Leonardo DiCaprio has been spending time on one of the world’s biggest, and most environmentally unfriendly, superyachts.
