James Taylor details the lengths Michael Mann has gone to in order to avoid having his claims scrutinised. He then proceeds to scrutinise them.
If Michael Mann had presented any of these arguments on a panel with an objective participating scientist, he would have been laughed off the stage. This explains why he throws hissy fits about having objective scientists sit on his panels.
And this, in short, is the state of the debate regarding global warming. Alarmists make ridiculous claims in the hope of swaying an uninformed populace. They refuse to allow critical objective critiques of their work. And when a skeptical scientist presents objective data that call the ridiculous claims into question, they accuse the skeptical scientist of being “anti-science.”
Thank you, Michael Mann, for perfectly illustrating why global warming media hounds are so frightened of public debate.
