Extracting emails from UVA

Chris Horner is interviewed on WINA-Charlottesville radio about his struggle to get Mann's emails from the University of Virginia. It's a struggle, by the sounds of it.

Expect Mann to be writing to controller of WINA radio next , if he is obsessed enough to complain about his letters covering him in some local paper can you image how he will react to radio station .

Michael Mann seems to be under some instruction possibly to delay proceedings if at all possible beyond the Durban climate conference and to do this almost regardless of cost and despite the likelihood of attracting ever increasing attention from all sides.

In fact, the likelihood is that his case against Tim Ball will also flounder once these emails are finally published.

Let's hope there is some interesting development as early as Monday...

Was it Mann who wrote this rubbish? From today's business insider:

So, it would seem that Mann is resorting to yet another trick to hide the further decline in his ever-sinking credibility.

The part that I find most curious about all these shenanigans [shemannigans?!], though, is why on earth U of VA is willing to stand behind him. It's not as though he's a member of their faculty [as is the case with UEA and the CRU crew]. What do they stand to gain by continuing to support Mann? Alternatively, one has to ask: what do they stand to lose when the emails become public?

Number 15 concerning tropical cyclones is quite a stretch. I guess they needed 16 points to make the list sound overwhelming but ran out of gas when they got there.

While the North Atlantic is as active as it was during the 1950s for various reasons, most scientists agree that the global warming signal is way too small to even detect in the North Atlantic tropical cyclone statistics.

Globally, tropical cyclone activity reached "unprecedented" record lows, and continues to bump along the bottom of the barrel. With another record La Nina on the way, nothing will change at least for another year. So, that'll be 5-years in a row of near-record low global tropical cyclone activity. Talk about hide the decline...

Part of Mann's delaying tactic might he that he's waiting for the Government to redefine FOIA laws to exempt climate data. Seems that there is a movement to consider climate data to be classified.

As one of the 50 people who "likes" Michael Mann on Facebook (c'mon guys show the love!), he kindly posted to me this diatribe on the American Prospect:

As their ranks diminish, global warming skeptics target scientists

Andy, have you checked out the other 49? Are you sure that it isn't a single "liker" extrapolated by teleconnection to 47 sock-puppets?!

Hilary, now that's a scary thought!
Me alone in facebook land with da Mann.

A lovely picture of..... the Sun!
Now, there's a hint.
No 10, rainfall up! Now, that's not a good thing?
No 12, SSTs up, no mention as to why 2/3 studies show a levelling/fall since 2003/4.
No13, sea level rise, why cut it off in 2005?

Hmm I don't suppose another miracle could happen on the 20th November to give us Climategate II?

Just wondering aloud.

@Rhoda Ramirez
Would you mind expanding on that one? Or providing any support for what you are saying there.

"As their ranks diminish.."

I wonder what he bases that on? Is that what the tree leaves tell him?

What can the general public do to encourage another November miracle?

The Durban conference is 28 November - 9 December 2011

Working Together, Saving Tomorrow Today. That is the motto.
