Sue the Decline

Climate “scientist” Michael Mann is suing PJMedia friend Rand Simberg, Mark Steyn, and others. Full details from Fox:

Controversial climate scientist Michael Mann, who helped raise global warming’s profile by representing temperatures as a rapidly escalating “hockey stick,” has filed a defamation lawsuit against skeptics at the National Review and the Competitive Enterprise Institute.

Mann said statements by the two organizations that compared him to convicted child molester Jerry Sandusky were offensive and defamatory, and called them the latest in a series of attacks he and other climate scientists have faced.

“Unsatisfied with their lacerations of his professional reputation, defendants have also maliciously attacked Dr. Mann’s personal reputation with the knowingly false comparison to a child molester,” the complaint reads.

Mann described the comments as one in a chain of attacks he has faced for his research into the effects of carbon dioxide — and mankind — on the climate.
