Tim Ball’s Memorial Fund Wrap Up

To All,

Our entire family has been humbled by all the wonderful communications regarding Dr. Ball, and to all who contributed to his memorial fund.

As a family we intend on keeping the archive of Dr. Ball’s work and writings in as many formats as feasible.  A portion of the contributions will be put to that end.

The tally so far is at approximately $25,000 Canadian.

Grateful to Anthony Watts for hosting (with extreme patience and kindness) this event, and those who stand behind Anthony to make “Watts Up With That?” the legend it has become.

For those wondering why we aren’t pursuing legal action, it is not complicated. Suffice to say ”ain’t no gas left in the tank”.

For those suggesting “pro bono”, the truth is, it is never pro bono in the end and the stress of 30 years of battling the activists in court has done the intended damage.

There are plenty taking up the mantle of logic and reason, thankfully, and we will support them as we have Dr. Ball.

Thank you to every last one of you reading this from the entire Ball family.

I don’t suppose it will happen, but Michael Mann should be squirming with contrition and embarrassment at the damage he has done to Dr Ball and his family.

Mann would have to be a Man to man-up in anyway.

(But don’t think this particular thread is place to focus on Mann. Perhaps the Mods could make a new thread for such … venting? Call it, maybe, “Mann’s treatment of Dr. Ball”?)

That will never happen. Diabolical Narcissists are incapable of normal human feelings and only exhibit hate, the need to dominate and humiliate others.

The objective of the fanatical among the environmentalists is to save the world FROM humans, not FOR humans. Casualties are fine. Dr. Ball will be among the more eminent of them.

How does Mann sleep at night?

It’s a puzzle. Even your average atheist isn’t that cold.

Maybe that’s the answer to perceived global heating – stay frosty, especially toward your fellow humanity

Because the nasty lying little slime ball M Mann is a legend … in his own mind.

Old fashioned concepts.

Adversaries should be honored when they’re gone, and debts repaid. from an honorable man.
Mann is not.
Perhaps a sociopath, maybe a psychopath. Definitely a coward and a liar.
Not a bit of honor. Not a man. That is Mann.

Respect to Tim Ball.
And condolences to his family. They should be proud.

David, I’m glad that the funeral expenses for you and your family have been covered.
I’m not glad they needed to be.
Your Father was a great man.
I’m praying for you and yours as I type this.

The sentiment is correct – it is for each of us, inspired, to take up the banner and leap into the breach.

When the swords flash, go forward! When the shafts fly, press onward!”

Mark Steyn’s book has 100 world class scientists calling Mann ‘a disgrace to the profession’
And now to the human race?

Thank you again, Anthony and Charles, for your kindness to Tim Ball and his family.

And thanks to everyone who contributed.

I believe there is a legal way to transfer the lawsuit/judgement to someone else.
