Upon Michael ‘hockey stick’ Mann’s latest lawsuit threat to Pastor Jonathan Lange, who honestly reported on his legal defeat versus Tim Ball, we post a public letter to Mann by a valued PSI member.

Dr. Michael Mann:

Recently you spoke ill of Dr. Judith Curry Bishop after her important stellar testimony before Congress and made unprofessional remarks about her publically.  I called you down for that conduct via Twitter.  In response thereto you blocked me from your Twitter account.

Pastor Jonathon Lange in Wyoming has written an outstanding article about the recent settlement of your frivolous and malicious lawsuit against Dr. Tim Ball.  We have published this piece on our Great Climate Debate website ( The article titled “Is man-made global warming Mann-made?” may be found at

I, for one, am convinced that you have fraudulently and knowingly mislead the academic, scientific, and media communities, as well as elected governmental leaders, policy makers, and the public at large.

On October 15, 2004 Richard Muller wrote an article titled “Global Warming Bombshell; A prime piece of evidence linking human activity to climate change turns out to be an artifact of poor mathematics”  as published in MIT Technology Review. The article makes reference to McIntyre and McKitrick’s work which essentially proves the fraudulent nature of your work. As of this writing I have seen no rebuttal from you to Mr. Muller and that article stands. See:

Please see my latest article which effectively proves that carbon dioxide in our atmosphere in trace gas quantities does not contribute to any statistically relevant global warming.

“Climatic Effects of Manmade Carbon Dioxide”  At:

Which begs the question we answer:  “An Atmospheric Greenhouse Effect Cannot Exist So What Does Carbon Dioxide in the Atmosphere Really Do?”  At:

And finally if not true why the climate hoax?  “Funding the Climate-Industrial Complex” At:

This openly public email to you will be placed in the letters section of our website.  To the extent you write a response we will publish that as well.

Thank you for your attention.

Kind regards,

Tom D. Tamarkin

    Thanks for supplying the email address. I emailed Mann with August NOAA YTD data showing the U.S. is only up .4 degress over the last 135 years. Mentioned America has had 6 highest record rainfall years since 1974 in the U.S. (NOAA) 2019 is the wettest year on record according to NOAA. Seems climate change is being good to the U.S. (The 6 highest record drought years in the U.S. were between 1895-1974 according to the latest NOAA data. The redwoods in California are the healthiest in recorded history according to the latest report by monitoring scientists. It seems climate change has been a real benifit to our country and our abilty to feed the world. I told Mann to get out and enjoy this beautiful country. But, I said wear a raincoat and duck if you see a cosmic ray sprite. Grand solar minumum is about to ruin your career.

    Doug Cotton,

    you need to stop trying to shove your claims down peoples throats, you go on and on in many places on the internet with your unpopular stuff. That is why you have been banned many times, they got tired of your thread hijacking and off topic postings.

    Go enjoy your retirement and leave the rest of us alone.

    All the science in the world is not going to convince the religious climate acolytes. You have exactly 15 seconds to say something meaningful. I suggest pointing out Obama and Al Gore both bought beach front property for significant cash. Both fly in private aircraft, drive in large SUV trains.
    Banks still lend money for beach front mortgages and Insurance companies still insure.
    Eyes roll when you talk about angstroms, photosynthesis,solar flux etc.
    People do understand hypocrisy, money and lawsuits.
