When open debate is not an option then you no longer have science ,you have religion. Religion does not encourage thinking it stifles it.

"Religion" is too broad of a term "cult" is more precise.

There are self-styled "religions" that do little more than encourage open discussion without any meaningful boundaries or goals.

A "cult" is what you intend as among the elements thereof are secretive, often arbitrary, abusive, and manipulative centralized control, as well as restricted freedom of thought and action.

Mann has a job - being the second face (after Gore) of CAGW. It is his vocation, avocation, profession and persona. It is his ego and his legacy. Regardless of the outcome of AGW, he will wear the crown of martyrdom, the laurel wreath of Caring For The World.

Michael Mann wants to be John the Baptist, not Christ Himself, as that position is already taken by Gore, but as close as he can - and perhaps he will outlive the Gore and receive the mantle from up high.

All this is Mannian marketing. And it works. For now.

Erhlich is still at it; Mann has an easy act to follow. You don't have to accurate, right or practical. You just have to have large amounts of hubris.
