Mark Steyn: "Unlike the obtuse groupie Revkin, [Pielke Jr ...] grasps the significance of Dr Mann's fraudulent Nobel claim"

The fraudulent Nobel Laureate :: SteynOnline
Over at National Review, we've been having some sport with Dr Michael Mann's attempt to pass himself off as a "Nobel prize recipient", notwithstanding that the Nobel committee says he isn't.

Missing the point as is his wont, The New York Times' Andrew Revkin thinks it's all about some crappy photocopied commemorative thank-you certificate the IPCC mailed out to 2,000 contributors.  It's not. Of those 2,000 thank-you-note recipients, only one (as far as we know) has claimed to be a Nobel laureate in an actual Superior Court legal complaint - no fewer than three times (paragraphs 2, 5 and 17).

When a man sues for damage to his reputation and grossly inflates that reputation in the very court filings, that says something about his credibility. Unlike the obtuse groupie Revkin, Professor Roger Pielke  Jr of the University of Colorado, in a post on "embellishing science", grasps the significance of Dr Mann's fraudulent Nobel claim...

All of this rests firmly upon the foundation of a quite general incompetence among climate scientists. On top of that is the fraudulent promulgation of that false science by the IPCC -- which has suborned all of our institutions -- and on top of the latter is the awarding of an unearned Nobel Prize to the IPCC by the Nobel Committee. If you just castigate Mann for inflating his sense of professional worth, and leave intact and unindicted the reputations of the Nobel Prize itself, of the IPCC, and of the climate scientists who enabled the IPCC in its fraud, then you miss the real lesson to be learned -- that all of those now piling on Mann's reputation have no credibility either, in the larger, true picture, because they fail to provide that picture to their readers, and thus to the world.
