Do I expect you to publicly denounce the hockey stick as obvious drivel? Well, yes.
Jonathan Jones, Professor of Atomic and Laser Physics, University of Oxford
Michael Mann, Phil Jones and Stefan Rahmstorf should be barred ...because the scientific assessments in which they may take part are not credible anymore.
Eduardo Zorita, Senior Scientist at Germany's Institute for Coastal Research
Did Mann et al get it wrong? Yes, Mann et al got it wrong.
Simon Tett, Professor of Climate Science, University of Edinburgh
The defamation suit against Steyn by Michael E Mann, inventor of the global-warming "hockey stick", is about to enter its fourth year at the DC Superior Court - which means Mark has a lot of case research lying around and he can't wait forever for the trial to start. So he figured he'd put some of it in a new book, now available from SteynOnline.
In the fall of 2014, not a single amicus brief was filed on Dr Mann's behalf, not one. He claims he's "taking a stand for science", but evidently science is disinclined to take a stand for him.
That got Mark curious as to what actual scientists think of Mann, his famous hockey stick, and his other work. So he started looking - and the result is a rollicking collection of insights into Big Climate's chief enforcer by scientists from around the world, from Harvard to Helsinki, Prague to Princeton, with commentary from Steyn telling the story of the rise to global celebrity of one Mann and his stick.
Advance praise for Steyn's new book!
"Most people would refrain from adding fuel to the fire if being sued by someone for attacking them. Steyn, however, is not most people."
"Iím thinking this is not going to be a very big book. Certainly not a very good one."
Greg Mann-Laden, Science Blogs
"Mark Steyn's genius legal gambit... Whoís to say whatís right or wrong, when your IQ could easily be the losing teamís score in a baseball game?"
Barry Bickmore, Climate Asylum
