One of the top spokesmen for the so-called global warming crusade (now known as “climate change” because the globe hasn’t been warming for 15 years now) is Dr. Michael Mann of Penn State. Mann is the inventor – yes, inventor – of the global warming hockey stick graph which supposedly showed that the globe began warming dramatically shortly after the industrial revolution. Only problem is that he massaged the numbers, conveniently ignoring the Little Ice Age and the Medieval Warming Period, both of which would have invalidated his theory.
Now, we find out that he even lied about receiving the Nobel Peace Prize.
Wow, first it was Joe Paterno and Jerry Sandusky. Now Michael Mann. Congrats to Penn State...what a legacy!
Above is a tongue-in-cheek “ad” placed in the school newspaper by National Review (note the fine print at the bottom of the ad). At least Mann is consistent. Apparently, he will lie about anything that will further his cause or himself.
Why should we believe the global warming crowd when they have people like Mann, Gore and Phil Jones as their top spokesmen?
