Great responses, Windigo.
Investegated by who? His own University. The University he brings in grant money to? The University that concluded he didn't inderectly take part in the destruction of E-mails when NOAA's own interview of his former Grad Student Dr. Wahl says that he in fact did? You do undsertand the term 'white wash' dont you.
The Rodney King trial was a trial? You know a real legal process. What Dr. Mann went through was his friends saying that he did nothing wrong. And as I showed in teh interview with Dr. Wahl his friends clearly where wrong in their conclusions.
I love this word "independent". Is his former grad student Dr. Wahl with whom he is in constant contact with "independent". Is his e-mail buddy Dr. Jones with whom he is also in constant contact with "independent". Is Dr. Briffa who said flat out in private e-mails that he believed that the medieval warm period existed and was warmer than the present but also understood the pressure to present a nice neat package "independent". Is Dr. Rutherford who used the same data set as Dr. Mann "independent". Is e-mail buddy Dr. Esper who is in private flat out afraid of crossing Mann "independent".
I don’t know how after Climategate we can honestly use the word "independent". These (*)(*)(*)(*)heads all work together and make sure that the are all on the same page. Its well understood in their e-mails that there will be hell to pay for anyone who doesn't tow the party line so I don’t know where you get the world "independent". They aren't independent. They are a team. Say what you want about the Climategate e-mails but they most certainly proved that.
Go ahead list any specific reconstruction you want I’ll blow it out of the water. They all make the same errors and/or use the same erroneous data like bristlecones, or Yamal, or upside down tiljander, to get a hockey stick.
Its been over 1000 days since a hurricane made landfall in the US. Longest such streak since the civil war.
Caused by a cooling pacific.
Rising at a rate that will make a difference long after we are all dead if ever.
What about it. Bore holes show a strong Holocene optimum and medieval warm period. Hockey stick reconstructions don’t get their shape from the borehole series.
Your mountian is a mole hill.
No I think he is a hack. The AR2 fell flat on its face because the IPCC couldn't show that the current warming was any stronger than the medieval warm period. That was until an unknown fresh out of grad school Dr. Mann somehow became a lead author despite having no qualifications for the IPCC AR3 and gave them the evidence they needed.
Attempting to explain the facts to Kessy_Athena is a lost cause and an exercise in futility.
She has become a sycophant and an official “spokesperson” for the far left global warming crowd!
