Mann Misrepresents NOAA OIG
Thanks in part to Michael Mann Climate Alarmists like President Obama are wasting billions of dollars in Climate Change mitigation policies in a futile effort to regulate Climate Change . http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/economics/10644867/We-have-failed-to-prevent-global-warming-so-we-must-adapt-to-it.html What is even more despicable is that the billions of tax payer dollars he is spending on Climate Mitigation is actually doing more harm to the environment than good. All pain for no gain.
The land use issues involved in current wind and solar energy initiatives are so horrific that they might be accurately described as a war on nature. If one does the math the US would have to dedicate 500,000+ square miles or approx. 15% of her entire land mass to solar to provide all of the US energy needs. Wind is no better. Wind energy providers in the US provide between 25 and 50 acre buffer zones for each wind mill and many of these wind farms are gobbling up prime farmland in the process; reducing America’s ability to produce food. Bottom line wind and solar are not ready for primetime that kill thousands of birds, bats and eagles and in the deserts of California and Arizona birds are literally burned alive when in flight over the vast array of solar panels that scar the desert. Climate Alarmists like Mann’s zealotry in pushing these currently unsustainable solutions boarders on fascistic. And as with all fascism it is never the poor or the environment that benefit from such efforts, but the corrupt and incestuous political and economic elites.
In today’s post, I’ll consider a fifth investigation – by the NOAA Office of the Inspector General OIG here- and show that, like the other four considered so far, Mann’s claims that it “investigated” and “exonerated” Mann himself were untrue. In addition, I’ll show that Mann’s pleadings misrepresented the findings of this investigation both through grossly selective quotation and mis-statement. Finally, the OIG report re-opened questions about Mann’s role in Eugene Wahl’s destruction of emails as requested by Phil Jones. In Mann’s pleadings, Mann claimed that each of the investigation reports was “commented upon in the national and international media”. But, in this case, much of the coverage focused on renewed criticism of the apparent obtuseness of the Penn State inquiry committee. The episode even included accusations of libel by Mann against CEI’s Chris Horner as well as a wild and unjustified accusation of “dishonesty” by Mann against myself.
