...He did even worse; he launched a campaign of punitive lawsuits against anyone who criticized him. He has sued Mark Steyn, National Review Online, and climatologist Dr. Timothy Ball.
Mann shot himself in the foot with that last. For several years, Mann had refused to produce his data for the court (in support of his own case), claiming that it was proprietary. After missing a February 20th deadline, he now finds himself in contempt. Under Canadian law, the court is now required to dismiss the suit.
John O'Sullivan goes into detail:
"The defendant in the libel trial, the 79-year-old Canadian climatologist, Dr Tim Ball is expected to instruct his British Columbia attorneys to trigger mandatory punitive court sanctions, including a ruling that Mann did act with criminal intent when using public funds to commit climate data fraud. Manns imminent defeat is set to send shock waves worldwide within the climate science community as the outcome will be both a legal and scientific vindication of U.S. President Donald Trumps claims that climate scare stories are a hoax.
"Michael Mann, who chose to file what many consider to be a cynical SLAPP (Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation) libel suit in the British Columbia Supreme Court, Vancouver six long years ago, has astonished legal experts by refusing to comply with the court direction to hand over all his disputed graphs data. Manns iconic hockey stick has been relied upon by the UNs IPCC and western governments as crucial evidence for the science of man-made global warming.
The negative and unresponsive actions of Dr Mann and his lawyer, Roger McConchie, are expected to infuriate the judge and be the signal for the collapse of Manns multi-million dollar libel suit against Dr Ball. ...

The lawyers for his side....had to know that this would come up, but I doubt if they explained it to him. They were just there to soak up the cost of the case and drag Mann along.
For Mann, it’s an enormous embarrassment. The case just ends...only because there cannot be a data set shown in a court.
Didn't he do "Miami Vice" in the '80's?
Looser pays in Canada...
Can he now be sued himself?
My kid once went to one Mann’s lectures, where he rambled and provided no documentation for ANY of his statements, except for a childish hand drawing displayed on an OHP. At the time, my kid had no idea who he was but came away totally unimpressed with him.
Steyn should have some interesting things to say about this turn of events.
Global Warming - Climate Change world biggest hoax and scam.
Just like Obama causing Global Flooding by pissing in the ocean.
That much can humans contribute.
Elaborate scam to screw off taxpayers off their money!
Earth climate and changes are dependent on Suns and Sunspots activity supplying 99.99% of energy. Humans can do schit about it.
Volcano eruptions can produce much more distractions to climate than all humans and SUVs farting together.
CO2 is not poison, it is food for plants, which in turn produce Oxygen, that we need to breathe.
STOP the scam, jail all the scammers!!!
God bless and protect Mr. Trump!
Please pass it on to Ms. Merkel, “genius” Hawkins et al.
Like Oscar Wilde. A libel suit can backfire big time.
Remember those leak East Angelia Climate Center emails where Mann boasted he had found a way to hide the observed decline in global temperatures? The man is a fraud.
The sky may not be falling but it looks like the gavel will.
He refused to provide his back up data while at the University of Virginia.
The hockey stick was a lie. It never came to pass. It’s like talking 20 years later about the devistation in Texas caused by a tropical storm in the gulf that never reached shore but was predicted to be cat. 5...
Amen. Preach brother. I can’t wait until 95% of Americans agree. The brainwashed left will only come to those conclusions kicking and screaming, but the hoax can’t be propped up forever. The truth always wins out in the end ans so it will be with the hoax of anthropogenic global warming.
He is not just defying the Freedom of Information Act, he is also defying accepted scientific practice (by the consensus of scientists). In any respectable science, data cannot be hidden but must be revealed for scientific review.
Except he's not practicing science, he's publishing false propaganda. And his actions in this case, a case that he brought, should prove that to everybody. But it won't. The True Believers will not be shaken from their faith, the publication of the East Anglia emails should have done that years ago.
Something programmers have known for decades:
Garbage in, garbage out.
The fact that this lying sack of sh*t Mann has a professorship at Penn State University is outrageous.
I only wish I was a Penn State alumnus so that I could withhold all my contributions until this insult to science and freedom was fired.
OK!! Everybody pay attention!
Lesson for today:
1. The sun is 1,300,000 times as big as the earth.
2. The sun is a giant nuclear furnace that controls the climates of all its planets.
3. The earth is one of the suns planets.
4. The earth is a speck in comparison to the size of the sun.
5. Inhabitants of the earth are less than specks.
Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?
