Weird Science — Global Warmist Sues Skeptic

Via Watt’s Up With That, we learn that University of Pennsylvania Professor Michael Mann is suing a global warming skeptic over his comment that Mann “should be in the State Pen, not Penn State,” for his role in the “climategate” email scandal:

Michael Mann, a professor in Penn State’s meteorology department and director of the university’s Earth Systems Science Center, claims that Ball defamed him when he said that Mann “should be in the State Pen, not Penn State,” for his alleged role in the so-called climate gate email tussle.

Mann says that Ball and the Centre refused to issue an apology and published the words with the “purpose of harming the plaintiff and exposing him to hatred, ridicule and contempt, lowering the plaintiff in the estimation of others, and causing him to be shunned and avoided.”

In my opinion, Mann certainly deserves to be shunned, avoided, held in low estimation and exposed to ridicule and contempt.  Mann is a hack of a so-called scientist. 

To recap, as detailed here, and here, Michael Mann is the guy who invented the discredited global warming “hocky stick” and then participated in a conspiracy to destroy information that was subject to Freedom of Information Act requests to prevent others from fully examining global warming claims.  That is, to put it mildly, not very scientific.

So, inevitably, Mann now argues Shut up! in court.
