Michael Mann of the “hockey stick” fraud is about to be exposed..bigger than Climategate?


Today three Virginia taxpayers including one state lawmaker, in conjunction with the American Tradition Institute Environmental Law Center, are asking the University of Virginia to produce important ‘global warming’ records under the Commonwealth’s Freedom of Information Act.

These emails and other documents relate to claims made by Dr. Michael Mann to obtain, and claim payment under, certain taxpayer-funded grants. Mann, currently at Pennsylvania State University, worked at the UVA’s Department of Environmental Sciences when he produced what was hailed at the time as the ‘smoking gun’ affirming the theory of catastrophic man-made global warming. Despite that lofty honorific, persistent controversy led promoters of this notorious ‘Hockey Stick’ graph (principally, the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change or ‘IPCC’) to stop advancing it as serious work.

In response to a previous FOIA request, UVA had denied these records existed. But during the course of Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli’s pre-investigation under the Virginia Fraud Against Taxpayers Act (“FATA”), a 2007 law passed unanimously by Virginia’s legislature that clearly covers the work of taxpayer-funded academics, UVA dropped this stance. Court records reveal that counsel for the University has indicated instead that the Mann-related records do in fact exist, on a backup server. To avoid University delay or claims for huge search fees, today’s request specifically directs the school to search that server.

While the school has spent upwards of half a million dollars to date fighting Cuccinelli’s pursuit, now before the Virginia Supreme Court, under FOIA it has one week to produce the documents, with no exemption for UVA’s arguments used to block Cuccinelli. These records address one of the highest-profile claims used to advance massive economic interventions policies in the name of ‘global warming.’

The Environmental Law Center hopes for prompt University compliance with FOIA, although we are prepared to fully protect our appellate rights. We can then, finally, determine what it is that so many have gone to such great lengths to keep the public from knowing about that which the public has paid for.

  1. Jct: What great news to see the Mann-Made Global Warming hoaxter even more exposed with the university that supported his fraud getting a shovelful of shit it deserves too.

  2. hey seek this got posted at WRH…

  3. Fake global warming, yet another violation of our rights. Add it to the list of gov’t violations of our right:
    They violate the 1st Amendment by placing protesters in cages, banning books like “America Deceived II” and censoring the internet.
    They violate the 2nd Amendment by confiscating guns.
    They violate the 4th and 5th Amendment by molesting airline passengers.
    They violate the entire Constitution by starting undeclared wars for foreign countries.
    Impeach Obama and sweep out the Congress, except Ron Paul.

  5. Jct: Michael Mann should be charged with murder for his “trick to hide the decline” in global temperature for American found frozen to death in anticipation of global warming wearing Bermuda shorts. THe Al Gore effect: freezing your ass off waiting for global warming.

  7. I’m not normally inclined to violent behaviour, but I’d love to that hockey stick disproven and broken over Mickey’s bald pate.

  8. Earthling: “I’d love to that hockey stick disproven and broken over Mickey’s bald pate.”

    Jct: No matter how cathartically enjoyable that might feel, there will be people who will die because Mann got paid to con us into preparing to fight global warming when he knew we were facing global cooling. That’s murder and that’s no joke, for Mann and his paymasters.

  9. >Jct: That’s murder and that’s no joke, for Mann and his paymasters.
    seeker401: thats the damning truth sadly..but a few whacks on the head would help!
    Jct: No need to enjoy the thought of physical pain. Just relish the thought of professional pain. He’s one of the most famous fraudsters in scientific history. His reputation is toast. He’s already the walking dead. What university is going to be able to keep such a notirious fraud on their staff for long. Har har har.

    • only the corrupt one hes at now..they have spent probably a million to keep his emails out of the public eye but it will fail,and the genie will be out the bottle!

  10. […] thousands of years. You couln't exist without carbon atoms. You're ilk isn't so silky itself. Michael Mann of the “hockey stick” fraud is about to be exposed..bigger than Climategate… […]
