Dr. Michael Mann will be at the Minneapolis Convention Center Wednesday to give a short lecture to the American Geological Society’s annual meeting.
Mann is probably best known as the infamous creator of the “hockey stick” graph designed to show a rapid, recent deviation from “normal” global temperatures,
Mann’s other notable contribution to climate science was his so-called “Nature trick,” in which he obfuscated data to “hide the decline” in global temperatures his own flawed tree ring research indicated. Mann had essentially disproved the reliability of his own work, which was the basis for reconstructing the Earth’s past climate record, the very foundation of the theory that the warming period experienced in the 1990s was outside the Earth’s norms.
Mann will address the geologists with a short talk titled, “Climate Scientists in the Public Arena: Who’s Got Our Backs?” at 1:45 PM.
From the synopsis of the talk posted on the AGS website, it appears that Mann will complain about warmists like himself being singled out and lament that scientists of his ilk are “massively out-funded in this battle” (not) over the realities of anthropogenic climate change.
It’s true that Mann has often been the subject of ridicule. In the wake of the “climategate” email scandals, his “Nature trick” of graph-scrubbing received a lot of attention and his hockey stick chart which was the basis for Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth has been proven false. Both of these facts have made him a target for satire, prompting him to threaten lawsuits against his detractors in the past. Now it seems, he’s hoping to grab some sympathetic ears among the geologists meeting at the Minneapolis Convention Center on Wednesday.
Perhaps Dr. Mann could use a welcoming committee. If you feel like welcoming one of the inner sanctum of warmist climate scientists to Minneapolis with a hand-made sign of some sort, drop by outside the Convention Center around 1:00 on Wednesday, October 12th. Can’t make it that early in the day? The meeting wraps up at 5:30 – 6:00 PM. You could drop by to bid adieu after work instead.
Update: Two facebook events have been established for a Michael Mann Welcoming Committee.
- See here for the 1:00-2:00 demonstration.
- Minnesotans for Global Warming has set up a facebook event for the 5:00-6:00 demonstration.

Any one that still caters to this fraud is no scientist. The real science is overwhelming and take hours upon hours just to explain how bad the IPCC “science” is. MM is a laughing stock, and intentional fraud still being targeted at elementary children needs to be a criminal crime.
Just came back from L.A. don’t have to see anymore Freak shows like Venice Beach. Mann buried his reputation with “The stick.” Need I say more?
I have to work. I hope there is lots of video.
I’m waiting for the DVD…
Dan must be too busy circumventing the constitution and rendering democracy nutuered to bother with getting that DVD available to the public.
I posted a picture. Check out Minnesotans for Global Warming – they might have video. http://www.m4gw.com.
I certainly am busy – fighiting to uphold the Constitution and natural rights.
“Natural rights”- for the naturally wealthy and naturally conservative… and naturally biased, and naturally intolerant…
Natural rights are those that all are born with – that are inherent in nature and exist with or without governments. It’s no wonder so many people gravitate to socialism – lacking a fundamental understanding of natural law or common sense. http://www.u-s-history.com/pages/h1206.html
Now that is an excellent comeback! Thanks for your hard work. Talk is cheap, you simply do the work others complain about in posts by unknowns that do nothing to change their own life’s position expecting others to pick up their tab. I, as others are tired of picking up the tab for able bodied americans that have been on the dole for over 50 years in some form of assistance/entitlement absent SS, etc. You cannot take more than 100% from the tax payers having nothing left to dispurse, isn’t it now at 51% that don’t partake in taxes but expect all of the benefits? Correct me if I’m wrong.
Or they gravitate to authoritarianism. The thing about you Libertarians is- you are hypocritical and inconsistent. You actually, deep down, have an authoritarian instinct/bent. It comes out in big and little ways. So obvious that it amazes people like me that you do not recognize it. But so it goes. Much Joe above complaining about people just like himself… without a clue about what he is saying and believes. He is programmed by the authoritarians (the true elite that run the world and rake in most of the cash). He and people like him (you too Dan) are the useful middle class foot soldiers fighting so hard for your own bondage- all the while believing you really want more freedom. When in fact you are doing just the opposite.
