Skip to comments.Michael Mann, scientist: Data 'increasingly unnecessary' because 'we can see climate change'

Leading climate doomsayer Michael Mann recently downplayed the importance of climate change science, telling Democrats that data and models "increasingly are unnecessary" because the impact is obvious.
"Fundamentally, I'm a climate scientist and have spent much of my career with my head buried in climate-model output and observational climate data trying to tease out the signal of human-caused climate change," Mr. Mann told the Democratic Platform Drafting Committee at a hearing.
"What is disconcerting to me and so many of my colleagues is that these tools that we've spent years developing increasingly are unnecessary because we can see climate change, the impacts of climate change, now, playing out in real time, on our television screens, in the 24-hour news cycle," he said.
Mr. Mann, director of the Earth System Science Center at Penn State University, spoke before the committee June 17 in Phoenix.
His comment drew hoots from climate skeptics, including the website Greenie Watch, which posted his comment under the headline, "'Scientist' Michael Mann says there is no need for statistics: You can just SEE global warming."

You bad old Freepers don't need any data ... because you'll just use it to disprove the facts that we have already established as true!
We are sciencers. We don’t need no steenking data.
Michael Mann has been increasingly unnecessary for quite a while. Surprised that Penn State keeps him.
A scientist who says “data is irrelevant” is not a scientist. He’s a con artist.

Fundamentally you are an idiot.
Michael Mann, con artist and pseudo-scientist
Still trying to remain relevant, even after his work was decisively proven false; not just false, but falsified.
This is, of course, the end-game for the warmists. Since the data, even after massaging, still stubbornly refuses to produce the catastrophic warming they so desperately desire, they now have resorted to claiming that the data isn’t important. That if they say climate change is happening, then we must believe it. I guess this is the climatological equivalent of Caitlin Jenner.
He should be in the State Pen.
We already altered and manipupted the data, but we were caught.
So we dont get caught anymore, we all just say we dont need any more data.
So, you're a liar. We get it.
Since I saw the headline I have the Miami Vice theme song in my head.
If you cannot replicate your results, you are a propagandist.
I am absolutely FURIOUS that Peer Review is now corrupted.
“I can see climate change from my front yard.” Right. Tina Fey where are you?
True, and a lot of “scientists” use data as a con man would, and this fraud Michael Mann is on of them.
Grant money suckerupper.
trying to tease out the signal of human-caused climate change
This ain’t the “Scientific Method”.
I nominate this clown for president of the “Flat Earth Society”
Translation - “We have to throw out the data because the facts don’t fit our conclusion.”
Michael Mann is about as much of a scientist as Paul Krugman is an economist.
It's still cold in the winter and warm in the summer and the Lake Level is the same as it was 200 years ago.
Some years it's damn cold and some years it's damn hot...and that's the way it is.
Climate change is an illusion....and the bottom line...it's all about money.
We're such a miniscule part of the universe. We're so vain.
