Mike’s Nobel Trick

It seems the more Dr. Michael E. Mann opens his mouth, the more he makes himself look like a total jackass. To make things worse, even his own lawyer somehow convinced him to file a baseless lawsuit, and so will end up raking in poor Mike’s money. Today the affair has become a comedy that has the audience rolling on the floor with laughter.

In the latest development, in what appears to be peculiar attempt to give himself gravitas, the insecure Dr. Mann claimed in his suit that he had been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his contribution as an IPCC scientist, when the Nobel Committee awarded the prize to the IPCC and Al Gore in 2007.

That claim is false. Just how did he try to pull it off? Easy: he used Mike’s Nobel Trick. It goes as follows:

1) Take the diploma awarded to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change in 2007.

2. Next, simply splice on the data you want:

3. And presto! Mike’s Nobel Trick produces a genuine looking Nobel Peace Prize for your own personal use!

With it you’ll be respected, be able to influence policymakers, and feel really important.

Just be sure to hide it. If anyone asks to see the original, just tell them you lost it, or that it’s available only to other Nobel prize winners, or that it’s not subject to the FOIA, or that you don’t have permission to share it.

By now we have to start feeling sorry for the poor guy. Disgraced and humiliated again.

    Surely such a capable tabloid climatologists should be awarded a title worthy of his skills and love for celebrity: The Nobel Trickster

    I consider all of the IPCC-associated climate scientists to be incompetent to the point of mental delusion, and every one of them responsible for bringing worldwide shame and loss of trust upon science itself. But the added certificate clearly says, “Presented to Michael E. Mann for contributing to the award of the Nobel Peace Prize for 2007 to the IPCC”. It doesn’t appear to claim the Nobel Prize was awarded to Mann. You must know, as I do, that the shame for this particular fiasco remains firmly with the Nobel Prize committee that picks the winners. It is first and foremost the IPCC and the Nobel committee that stand disgraced and humiliated, in my book — and you can tack on the names of Mann et al. after that prime indictment (just as Mann’s “trick” here does), as a piggyback.

    If they awarded prizes for charlatanry and sleight of hand, lying or dissimulation – then Mike E. Mann would win prizes enough to fill a battleship.

    But um…………………..Mike even……… wasn’t weasel enough to win a K-noble-d award – you forgot about the bribes Mike – ask Rajendra how it’s done.

    Do you think Mickey-Mann is ‘losing it’………………………………..?

      “If they awarded prizes for charlatanry and sleight of hand, lying or dissimulation – then Mike E. Mann would win prizes enough to fill a battleship.”

      I see that you don’t know the German Solar and Wind industry, and the political “sustainability” circus. When they’re not busy raking in subsidies they’re giving each other prices or invite James Hansen or Paul Ehrlich to give them some.
      I helped develop a product for them. Guess what, the product won a price.

        Right Dirk and while were at it, lets talk about peer review – you write the thesis and I’ll do the review – publish it in nature and we’ll all get a big prize……

        How about something like, or about, “I lost the MWP in Siberia – I couldn’t see the wood for the tree rings”.

    Climate Scientist. Clownate Scientist.

    What’s the difference? 😉

  6. Robin Pittwood

    The award should have been given to Irena Sendler.

    He’s changed his bio overnight (with no note as to why, of course). The relevant sentence read

    “He shared the Nobel Peace Prize with other IPCC authors in 2007”

    and now reads

    “He contributed, with other IPCC authors, to the award of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize.”

    “He contributed, with other IPCC authors, to the award of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize.”
    That is certainly either garbage or at least grammatically incorrect. He did not ‘contribute’ to the AWARD! He was a sharing or maybe contributing, ‘recipient’.
    Also, given that Obama received a Nobel Prize for contributing to PEACE, I would classify the Award as worthy for display, or some other use, in the toilet.
    Nothing to be proud of!

  10. Ken McMurtrie

    “He contributed, with other IPCC authors, to the award of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize.” This makes no sense, he didn’t contribute to the award.
    He was a sharing and ‘contributing’ ‘recipient of’ the award!

    Besides, the award is worthless. Obama received one for “contributions to Peace”! They can be bought for favours and obeying orders.
