    I'm still waiting for the court to find him in contempt officially. I agree with the argument, of course. Mann should show his data. If he filed that lawsuit, he needs to show some evidence to back it up.

    More to the point, Mann is really prosecuting a different lawsuit: Earth v. Humanity. The allegation: negligent "geocide." Even if he could find a court of competent jurisdiction--and even if we could not file to have the case dismissed for lack of subject-matter and personal jurisdiction--he still would have to show the data to prove the merits of his case!

    It doesn't matter how many times you rub their noses in the false data, climate change believers will believe because they want to believe that mankind is some sort of alien species dedicated to destroying earth.

    Instead of trying to get Michael Mann in prison simply eliminate all federally funded studies, schools, etc. If he wants to study climate change he will either need to fund it himself or find an individual willing to fund dishonest research. What is interesting is that the court doesn't even want to risk demanding that he supply the information. I am certain if I were on trail as an individual I would already be imprisoned.

    One mistake in the video...they said that Michael Mann's reputation was gone.....Not in the church of global warming! The fact that some court held him in contempt and fined him will actually enhance his reputation with the worshipers because of course the lackey government is covering for the evil capitalist industrialists!

    In the video (time code about 8 min to 9 min) the narrator asks why one source shows the current temps at 0.4C higher than baseline while another source reports the current temps at 0.62C higher than the baseline.
    Answer: The baseline periods are not the same period.

      I don't think so Freedomforall.
      baseline temperature is typically computed by averaging 30 or more years of temperature data.

        The slides show the time periods are not the same.

          I see July 25,2017 and July 26, 2017 as dates.
          Regardless, the post is regarding this shameful scientists bitter and embarrassing defeat for the self-styled ‘Nobel Prize winner’ who acted as if he was the epitome of virtue, this outcome shames not only Michael Mann, but puts the climate science community in crisis. Many hundreds of peer-reviewed papers cite Mann’s work, which is now effectively junked. Despite having deep-pocketed backers willing and able to feed his ego as a publicity-seeking mouthpiece against skeptics, Mann’s credibility as a champion of environmentalism is in tatters.

          But it gets worse for the litigious Penn State professor. Close behind Dr Ball is celebrated writer Mark Steyn. Steyn also defends himself against another one of Mann’s SLAPP suits – this time in Washington DC. Steyn boldly claims Mann “has perverted the norms of science on an industrial scale.” Esteemed American climate scientist, Dr Judith Curry, has submitted to the court an Amicus Curiae legal brief exposing Mann. The world can now see that his six-year legal gambit to silence his most effective critics and chill scientific debate has spectacularly backfired.

            Just under the date you mentioned for Weatherbell is the text showing the time period: 1981-2010 climatology (with 0.41C)
            For ClimateRealizer the time period is on the left side just below the globe : CFSR 1979-2000 Baseline
            The Weatherbell uses 10 years more recent data for the baseline.

            I agree, Mann should have sealed his own fate if there is reason used.
