Skip to comments.The martyrdom of Mark Steyn

So lets just cut through that crap and remind ourselves briefly what we know about the plaintiff. Michael Mann was an obscure young physicist-turned-climatologist who rose without trace in 1998 with the publication in Nature of his hockey stick chart showing dramatic and apparently unprecedented late-20th-century global warming.
There followed almost instant fame, on which Mann has traded ever since gaining tenure at Penn State University, drawing millions in public funding for research, often called on by the Guardian and the New York Times to sum up the state of climate science. Al Gore used a version of Manns hockey stick in his Oscar-winning An Inconvenient Truth. The IPCC used it five times in its Third Assessment Report and promoted Mann to lead author.

Mark is one of the good guys.
Bump, this needs to be seen. It’s the first I’d heard of it. Steyn really gets under the leftist tyrants’ skins, they keep dragging him into court.
Mark is on the right (correct) side and he deserves to be supported. Can someone please inform the author that he does not know how to write?
It now looks go to Steynonline.com for the full story as if Steyn is going to be up there on his own, fighting and financing his case without the support of his magazine, National Review; that the outcome is not as certain as it seemed at the beginning; and that this hero deserves all the help we can give him.

“...they keep dragging him into court.”
Only by perverting the intent of the legal system can the left undermine Steyn’s unrelenting truth.
Here’s a link with info on how to support him, if anyone wants to chip in:
James Delingpole is also on the right side of this issue. I chose the excerpt to highlight how Mann as enriched himself in money, position, power and status with his bogus science.
If you read the full editorial you would see this.
Committing a crime is no longer the crime? Exposing the criminal actions of others is now the crime?
Yes, there are a lot of sharp conservative lawyers out there. It would be nice if they would show up on the ramparts for this battle.
It certainly highlights how politically biased and corrupt the American courts are, that they haven’t sent this case to the round file as a SLAPP suit.
HE double hockey sticks.
I had a similar problem when I was in school. Hell of a time trying to get something started, but when I got a report going, I had to end it abruptly because I had a lot in my head I wanted to write down, but I’d take up far too much paper and time. Maybe the author should sit down with someone more experienced and ask for tips.
Your post is confusing. He does say to support Mark.
Mann is the incarnation of Rachel Carson.
It’s been going on for quite some time. Mann sued NRO also.
