What Is Michael Mann’s Real Agenda?

Michael Mann is either extremely naive or ………………………!

 

 

He is quite right of course in saying that the 1.5C target requires emission to be cut by half by 2030. But according to him, the problem will go away if the US “incentivises renewable energy” and “starts to defund infrastructure for fossil fuels”.

Neither of these actions will make much of a dent in US emissions, never mind the world’s.

Biden’s target is to cut US emissions by 43% to 50% from 2005 levels by 2030, but the planned policies already committed to will  barely reduce them at all. But even if the target was achieved, it would only reduce emissions by about 2 GtCO2e:

Worldwide emissions have to fall by between 23 and 27 GtCO2e by 2030 – in other words more than 10 times the US contribution:

Michael Mann must know full well that the US cannot halve emissions in eight years without colossal economic pain. To pretend that building a few more wind and solar farms will make a difference is naive and misleading, given that they currently supply less than a tenth of US energy.

He must also know, however, that the rest of the world most certainly is not going to follow suit, making any US sacrifice worthless.

So why is he peddling this propaganda on MSNBC?

    He sees his purpose in life as a Defender of “THE SCIENCE” (sniff!)

    Everything about these chancers is fake.
    The 1.5C ‘target’ is fake, with zero science significance.
    The demand to cut ‘carbon’ is fake.
    The claimed benefits are fake.
    The claimed threat is fake.

    ‘Rapid and narrowing’ our hero claims!

    Tony Heller did a piece on this the other day. There may be some duplication but for reference, here it is. Heller refers to Mann as the world’s leading climate fraudster. For some reason Mann is reluctant to sue.

    I can only think he just craves publicity and this type of video keeps him up there as some sort of go-to expert or he and others realise that to achieve net zero we will need a world government with absolute powers over our lives.

    If it’s world government, you have to look at this and the WHO’s plans to take over the responsibilities and powers of sovereign governments when dealing with epidemics including putting themselves forward as the sole arbiter of when a virus outbreak is called an epidemic and pandemic.

    It’s a scary world that these guys, Mann, Gates, Gore etc., are presenting to us and not one I particularly want to live in.

    So, it is claimed, allegedly: – “He is quite right of course in saying that the 1.5C target requires emission to be cut by half by 2030.”

    Correction: – HE says “the 1.5C target requires emission to be cut by half by 2030”.

    Frankly, I don’t believe a word of this. Nothing but a mountain of falsified projections made by him and all his Globalist, Far Left, GangGreen chums.

    There is no EVIDENCE that cutting emission by half anytime – (by next Thursday or by 2,300 A.D.) would achieve HIS fraudulent target, or would have any climatalogical effect whatsoever. It would very likely destroy the West, however.

    That isn’t a bug. That’s the designed feature. It is well past the time for him to go push up some daisies.

    Since the scare is driven by the models, why not rework the models so the data used reflects past observed data?

  7. June 20, 2022 7:29 pm

    So why is he peddling this propaganda on MSNBC?

    Mid-term elections in November?

    The UK already appears to be preparing for the next general election, don’t vote for the other lot, or else what is unfolding will be much worse.

    The man (Mann) is an extremist lunatic. Is he going to buy every American 50k EV in the next few years?

    1. Looked at from farmers, plant productivity, viewpoint the bulk of the planet at all times in the annual cycle is experiencing a temperature that is sub optimal from the photosynthetic point of view, even in the summer season.

    2. There is a strong connection between urbanization and local temperature.

    2, The connection between CO2 and temperature is implausible, and not supported by observation.

    Manmade carbon dioxide has a neglible effect on global warming so Michael Mann is not only wrong but he unscientifically manipulates data to suit his employers, The IPCC.

        He is not worth the sum of his constituent if he were melted down!

        . . . and now as $19 M.
        He has earned high salaries and cash awards since 1999 (?), and his travel costs will have been paid via research funds and honorariums.
        His “net” worth should include the amount in a university pension plan or equivalent (403b), personal investments, house(s), and auto(s).
        He is likely in the 1% category for USA net worth. [ >$10M ]

    No matter his Net Worth . . . Michael Mann and his Hockey Stick Graph . . . have done more harm to the world we live in than can ever be calculated.

    Since the 2001 IPCC document on Human Caused Climate Change was published . . . The Truth . . . The Environment as a subject has become Explosive! You speak against its Edicts at your Peril. Accept the truth as prescribed from upon high, or suffer the Scorn and the Ridicule among your peers. Not to mention by society as a whole. Environmentalism is a relatively New Science and it is being truly tested for the first time. If Climategate starting in 2009 is any example, we can only imagine what is yet to come. When that One Stone gets overturned proving Collusion and Willful Deception. The un-scientific foundations that have been supporting the Environmental Movement since its inception will render it . . . Null.

    Sadly, to date, no self-respecting Media Representative wants to risk the Ire of their Peers or the Mandarins ruling the Environmental Movement or The Purveyors of Globalization in our New Social Construct. For they are ‘Brothers-in-Arms’, so to speak. Who wants to be the one to open Pandora’s Box? . . . It would be like pulling Hans Brinker’s finger from the Dyke or Killing the Goose that Lays the Golden Egg . . . The old adage . . .

    There are none so blind as those who will not see . . . How Ironic . . .

    Michael Mann is an egotist. If it wasn’t for the global warming scare he would be a nobody. It started with his fake hockey stick graph which became a propaganda icon for the ecofascists of the IPCC and Gore et al. From that he shot to fame and a very good income for a talentless crook.

    In any other profession, in anything other than the climate circus this man would not only have been summarily fired from his job but he would never be considered for work in the sciences again because he deliberately with malice of forethought committed the most serious crime in the world of science, scientific fraud. Complicit in his fraud is the journal editor and the peers who supposedly reviewed his work before publishing.

    Perhaps it puts the morals of the people in the shadows who fund the climate liars into context because as in Putin’s Russia, people useful to the regime caught out doing unacceptable and illegal things are rewarded if they support the cause. He was caught out committing scientific fraud. He was rewarded with a professorship! WTF? As if that was not enough he went on to claim he had been given a Nobel Prize and disturbingly made his own certificate! That suggests some serious psychotic issues.

    He is a disreputable individual who has done his discipline and the wider scientific world a significant disservice as well as being a thoroughly nasty piece of work. It has been my good fortune to have met only one or two of his ilk during my time in higher education and my career but once met they are never forgotten.

      What I would like to know is why is the United Kingdoms woke foreign intelligence service MI6 ideologically aligned with Michael Mann and complicit in the fraud that is the fictional climate emergency to the extent MI6 operatives are conducting ‘green spying “?..Is the egregious Covert Human Intelligence Sources provision to be used in this capacity ?…Well the NKVD under Stalin enforced the pseudoscientific ideas of Trofim Lysenko and we know that did not end well …Some historical lessons are never

    He’s a mediocrity who ahs found an opportunity to become extremely important. He absolutely has no interest in science any more – imagine f he discovered he’d been wrong!

    He will continue to spout his nonsense for as long as he can because he enjoys the limelight. Vanity thy name is Mann.

      1.5 degrees is a completely arbitrary number pulled out of the air and now worshiped like one of their many false gods. There is ZERO science which demonstrates the their collapse of Western civilization via any means including this is going to have any impact on the cycles of cooling and warming of the planet. Models do not produce empirical data! BEWARE!

      • June 21, 2022 3:17 pm

        He has been shown to be demonstrably wrong yet in the climate fantasy world that is no impediment to progression. Challenging the claims, no that will get your life made hell by people like him.

    Don’t forget Mark Steyn’s book ‘A Disgrace to the Profession’ whic had the collected opinions of 100 world class scientists on Mann. If I were he I would have shaved off my beard and gone and lived in a cave. Instead he claimed to be a Nobel prize winner.

    So many hurdles in front.
    Germany has replaced the nuclear plants with wind / solar, but no reduction in carbon exchange levels. A five year old would have realized that, replacing something with very low emissions with something with very high initial emissions (it takes 25 year to repay the debt if compared with nuclear power and then they are about to be scrapped, if that not already happened). Now they are increasing the use of coal to save the gas for the winter…

    In Sweden the politicians were screaming loud on off-shore wind. It turned out that the 1 – 2 years ahead became earliest 2029 for the first park. In desperation the socialist party now claim that they will pave the way for more nuclear (including SMR’s), something the opposition recently have suggested, including help with financing. The “green” party (MP) is about to get too few votes to remain in the government (election in Sweden Sept 11).

    With inflation climbing higher and higher, more and more claims to reduce the amount of biofuel (Sweden have the highest percentage in the world) to lower the prices on petrol and diesel, very fluctuating prices of electricity – you wouldn’t believe it, Sweden used to have a cost of 3 p / kWh + taxes and network cost –> 15 p / kWh in reality. Now the costs some days are more than 80 p / kWh, in the middle of the summer. Explanation, it was a bad wind day and people on the continent were running their AC’s. No wonder, closing down four fully functional nuclear power plants producing about 4 GW (in Sweden the maximum consumption in the winter is about 25 GW. Replacing with wind mills not working.

    Also in Sweden there prospects start to be meat or heat for many persons. Of course, the government explain last winter that this was temporary. This was a lie and they know it and hopefully the persons using their savings to pay their bills last winter will remember which was the ruling party behind the problems – this has been driven by the Green Party since they entered government in 2014.

    The scientist impersonator imagines 9/5=2, and admits it on video. Impersonating a physician is not legal. But increasing the death rate by impersonating a physicist?
