Prof. Michael Mann strikes back


    Looks as though Professor Michael Mann has had enough.

    Mann, you will recall, is the climate scientist that Ken Kookynelly is demonizing and trying to “investigate.”

    In this letter to the editor, Mann responds to a published attack on his work.…

    Here are the opening paragraphs of Mann’s response — the rest of the article is as strongly-worded as the opening:

    An individual named Martin Hertzberg did a grave disservice to your readers by making false and defamatory statements about me and my climate scientist colleagues in his recent commentary in your paper.

    It’s hard to imagine anyone packing more lies and distortions into a single commentary. Mr. Hertzberg uses libelous language in characterizing the so-called “hockey stick” — work of my own published more than a decade ago showing that recent warming is unusual over at least the past 1,000 years — as “fraudulent,” and claiming that it “it was fabricated from carefully selected tree-ring measurements with a phony computer program.”

    These are just lies, regurgitation of dishonest smears that have been manufactured by fossil fuel industry-funded climate change deniers, and those who do their bidding by lying to the public about the science.

    Kooky had better re-think his desire to get Mann on the witness stand because it’s clear Prof. Mann is not about to roll over for anyone.
