Infamous climate “scientist” Michael Mann has sued various people who have challenged the credibility of his global warming claims as backed up by his “hockey stick” temperature graph. (H/T, Artisan Craft Blog) Principia Scientific International reports that Mann now appears to be on the verge of losing a suit he filed in British Columbia against Canadian scientist Tim Ball. Mann has refused to hand over the data set which backs up his research.
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 graph’s data.
A finding that Mann is in contempt of court could result a quick end to the lawsuit in the defendant’s favor.
Maybe he should have kept his hockey stick on ice.
