Mann v Steyn:
If This Trial Ever Goes Ahead
Global Warming Is Toast

Breitbart London [UK], by James Delingpole

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 8/15/2014 11:47:26 AM

Mark Steyn has published his latest brief in his protracted court case with discredited climate scientist Michael Mann (who is suing him for libel) and it´s a corker. Here´s a sample: The audacity of the falsehoods in Mann's court pleadings is breathtaking. For example, on page 19 of his brief below dated January 18, 2013, he cites the international panel chaired by the eminent scientist Lord Oxburgh, FRS as one of the bodies that "exonerated" him, whereas on page 235 of Mann's own book, The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars, he states explicitly that "our own work did not fall within the remit of the committee and the hockey stick

Save for preventing existential barbarians from slaughtering us, the AGW/AGCC Green debate is more important than any other issue, as it involves wasting--micturating away--literally trillions of dollars and making our lives significantly more laborious and expensive to live, in service of the greatest pseudo-scientific hoax in world history. The minds of literally billions of fellow human being have been poisoned by the Gorons, and now they feel guilt for living well. There´s a spiritual death penalty coming for the likes of Mann, Gore, Phillip Jones, Barack Obama, and John Kerry, et al., for attempting to usher in universal statism by furtive means. Delingpole is on the side of the angels who love and try to protect mankind. To wit:

FTA: (The global warming debate is) not one of those issues where there´s right and wrong on both sides and it´s really a matter of opinion which one you favour. Quite simply it´s a very straightforward battle between, on the one hand a bunch of lying, greedy shysters, fanatical, misanthropic, anti-capitalist eco-loons, bent, grant-troughing scientists, grubby politicians and despicable, rent-seeking millionaires and billionaires; and on the other a handful of brave, honest, rigorous, seekers-after-truth.

God bless Mark Steyn!

Between AGW hoax and Michelle´s meal plans, the youth of America will rightly decide democrats are dishonest tyrants and hypocrites. Not even the left will be able to re-write the textbooks quick enough. Thanks for posting this article (I was going to post it myself!) Should be a must-read; it´s delicious! ´It is clear from the ease with which Mann lies about things that would not withstand ten minutes of scrutiny in a courtroom that he has no intention of proceeding to trial."

Mann has lied for so long with impunity, he thinks he´s good at it.

I bought "Steyn vs the Stick" t-shirts from Mark´s website to help support him in this. They´re great shirts! As the article says, the big money has always been with the global warming frauds.

A British man convicted and jailed for Islamic terrorism in 1999 has, in a lengthy and indulgent feature with Sky News, blamed violent computer games for “dehumanised” young Britons going abroad to fight for the Islamic state. The twelve minute report – which showed at regular intervals yesterday on Sky News – features a number of recorded interviews with British Muslims expressing their opinions on the reasons for the radicalisation of young muslims. One, a rapper, blames ‘injustice’ and cites Muslims in the UK who are so distrustful of the government and media they don’t even believe the political executions

ISTANBUL - Turkey would welcome senior figures from Egypt´s outlawed Muslim Brotherhood after they were asked to leave Qatar under pressure from other Gulf Arab states, Turkish media quoted President Tayyip Erdogan as saying late on Monday. A senior Brotherhood official based in London said on Saturday that Qatar had asked seven senior figures from the movement to leave the country after its neighbors pressed it to stop backing the Islamists. Senior Brotherhood figures would be welcome to come to Turkey if they wished to do so, Turkish television stations quoted Erdogan as telling reporters on his plane back from an official

The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) has released a video of an imam in Gaza who was filmed during a Friday sermon while brandishing a gun and saying that weapons were the Palestinian Arabs´ only means to establish a caliphate. MEMRI noted that the cleric, Sheik Iyad Abu Funun, was released to the Palestinian Authority-assigned areas of Judea and Samaria as part of the Shalit prisoner swap deal in 2011. He was arrested again, and was sentenced to complete his 10-year term in prison. In July 2013, after threatening to go on a hunger strike, he was released and deported to

Last night, David Cameron made his final appeal to Scottish voters to remain part of the Union. In a passionate speech in Aberdeen, he sought to spell out to Scots the full scale of the awful and momentous choice that faces them--whether or not to break up the country “that all of us call home”. The Prime Minister has been accused by the Yes campaign of “scaremongering”: but as he said, it is his duty to set out the true consequences of such a vote, and to explain how disastrous it would be not just for Britain, but for Scots

A powerful bomb explosion has rocked the Afghan capital Kabul, sending a plume of smoke over the city and shaking buildings, reports say. Interior ministry sources said the bomb went off near the Supreme Court building on the airport road. One report said a siren alert had been set off at the US embassy, not far from the scene. There has been no information about any casualties. The blast comes amid uncertainty over disputed presidential elections.

The United States government is sending thousands of military troops to the west African nation of Liberia as part of the Obama administration´s Ebola virus-response strategy, the White House said late Monday night. [Snip] ´A general from U.S. Army Africa, the Army component of U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM), will lead this effort, which will involve an estimated 3,000 U.S. forces.´ Liberia is the hardest-hit of the four west African nations that have confirmed Ebola cases, accounting for more than one-half of the fatalities. The others are Sierra Leone, Guinea and, to a lesser extent, Nigeria.

MANILA--The Philippines has evacuated more than 12,000 people from around the foot of its most active volcano as the crater glows red and authorities warn of a possible eruption. Mount Mayon, known for its near-perfect cone shape in the coconut-growing central Bicol region, has recorded a series of recent quakes and rockfalls, indicating a possible eruption within weeks. "We are now raising the alert status of Mayon Volcano from alert level 2 to 3," Renato Solidum, head of the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs), said on Tuesday.

PARIS--US Secretary of State John Kerry refused be drawn into a "back and forth" with Iran on Monday following Tehran´s assertion that it had rebuffed a US request to coordinate a response to the Islamic State jihadist group. "I´m not going to get into a back and forth. I don´t want to do that. I don´t think that is constructive, frankly," Kerry told reporters at the US ambassador´s residence in Paris after an international conference on Iraq attended by 26 countries. Kerry was speaking after Iran´s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said Tehran had vetoed a US invitation to cooperate in fighting

Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, on Monday said his country had rejected a U.S. request for cooperation against the “Islamic State” (IS) because Washington has “dirty hands”. “Right from the start, the United States asked through its ambassador in Iraq whether we could cooperate against [IS],” Khamenei said in a statement on his official website which was quoted by Al Arabiya. “I said no, because they have dirty hands,” said Khamenei, who has the final say on all matters of state in Iran. “Secretary of State (John Kerry) personally asked (Iranian counterpart) Mohammad Javad Zarif and he rejected the request,” said Khamenei,

David Cameron just delivered a masterclass in speech-giving in front of a pro-UK audience in Aberdeen in Scotland. In case you missed it, you can read the full text here. [Snip] He touched on almost every major issue related to the Scottish referendum debate without labouring any points. It makes you wonder why the opposition to the ´Yes´ campaign was primarily run from Labour HQ, which has consistently failed to deliver a solid message, leading to the precarious position our union finds itself in with just 3 days to go until Scots go to the polls.

"I hate England," explained the English-born, English-raised designer to reporters at her show at London Fashion Week, where her catwalk models sported "Yes" badges and where her guests were treated to a statement printed on their seats explaining her position. It said: "I am so excited. Fingers crossed they will win. Because if they do, it could be the turning point towards a better world. They could lead by example". Even if I had never met Vivienne Westwood, I would find the fluffy incoherence of this statement troubling. As that double use of the word "could" only serves to emphasise, it is

Former President George W. Bush put together a 48 member coalition for the Iraq War in 2003. 40 of those members supported military operations and 37 provided some number troops. In April 2003, the list was updated to include 49 countries, though it was reduced to 48 after Costa Rica objected to its inclusion. Of the 48 states on the list, three contributed troops to the invasion force (the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland). An additional 37 countries provided some number of troops to support military operations after the invasion was complete. Despite these numbers the liberal media continues to push the lie

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said comparing Republican treatment of President Obama to how Democrats handled President George W. Bush is a false equivalence and that Democrats don’t bear culpability for the comparatively fewer number of bills being passed by Congress and signed into law. “Let me just say that any of this equivalence, both sides, this or that, no — we never treated President Bush the way they treat President Obama,” she said Monday on MSNBC. “It’s no use whining about it; we just have to get people out to vote” and make people aware there’s an election this

President Barack Obama unveiled his plan to tackle the Ebola crisis in West Africa on Tuesday, promising to do far more to tackle the deadly virus he said could result in "hundreds of thousands of people infected" without US intervention. "More than 2,400 men, women, and children are known to have died and we strongly suspect that the actual death toll is higher than that," Obama said in a speech at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia. "Hospitals, clinics, and the few treatment centers that do exist have been completely overwhelmed." The president was particularly dire

Democrats are now (very slightly) favored to hold the Senate majority on Nov. 4, according to Election Lab, the Post´s statistical model of the 2014 midterm elections. Election Lab puts Democrats´ chances of retaining their majority at 51 percent -- a huge change from even a few months ago when the model predicted that Republicans had a better than 80 percent chance of winning the six seats they need to take control. (Worth noting: When the model showed Republicans as overwhelming favorites, our model builders -- led by George Washington University´s John Sides -- warned that the model could and

The Obama administration is preparing to introduce major steps to phase out production of a popular chemical coolant used in refrigerators and air conditioners, citing growing evidence that the substance is contributing to the warming of the planet. The White House will announce on Tuesday a series of voluntary commitments by some of the country’s largest chemical firms and retailers to move rapidly away from R-134a and similar compounds used in nearly every office, home and automobile in the country, according to current and former U.S. officials familiar with the effort.

First Lady Michelle Obama has made healthy eating and exercise her signature issue. But, a recent study published by the Sage Journal found that her “elitist” advice actually “shames poor and middle class mothers.” The College Fix added that the study found that Michelle Obama’s healthy eating program is also sexist. It’s also sexist, the study’s authors suggest, noting that “intentionally or not, it places the burden of a healthy home-cooked meal on women.” Sage Journals published the study by North Carolina researchers Sarah Bowen, Sinikka Elliott and Joslyn Brenton.
