On Hiding the Decline and Rebuilding Trust part III (of LXXV): To Serve Mann

By cartoonist Josh, from WUWT
The final nail in the coffin of global warming is nigh! The ultimate truth of the Climategate scandal is revealed. The downfall and disgrace of the Team is finally coming. Teamster Eugene Wahl has spilled the beans.

Mosher at WUWT reports
“Sources confirm that a federal inspector has questioned Eugene Wahl and Wahl has confirmed that Mann asked him to delete emails. Wahl has also informed the inspector that he did delete emails as the result of this request.”
We thank this courageous source, probably the brave Senator Inhofe's office.

“Climategate’s Michael Mann Caught!? Justice to be Served?! Climategate’s Eugene Wahl ‘has confirmed that Mann asked him to delete emails… Wahl did delete emails as the result of this request’”

So the case is clear: Teamster Mann ordered Teamster Wahl to delete emails. Mann was the bloated spider in the center of the web of deceit and deception spun by the Team; the ayatollah behind the Team's reign of climate terror. The emails in questions are reported to be concerned with a clandestine exchange Wahl had with Teamster Briffa, when Briffa asked for Wahl's assistance in corrupting the corrupt IPCC procedures in order to respond to a hockey-stick-related comment from an IPCC reviewer (who actually was our hero Steve McIntyre). The corruption is claimed to consist of Wahl, secretly and most certainly in violation of the corrupted IPCC rules, sending Briffa a paper he co-authored with Teamster Ammann which had not been published at that time, but that is probably just the tip of the non-melting ice-berg. We can only speculate what tricks, decline-hiding, spaghetti cooking and data massaging was going on in that corrupt paper. It is now clear that nothing in the IPCC reports can be trusted. The public is rapidly losing confidence in climate science due to this sordid affair, and justifiably so. This would never have happened of the IPCC had followed my advise to video record all activities of IPCC authors; to log all their computer activities; to record all their communications and conversations; monitor their physiological parameters (temperature, blood pressure, EKG, EEG etc); to regularly test their DNA for mutations; and to make all this information publicly available in real time on the web. I demand that the IPCC complies with my suggestions for the writing of the next report, due in 2035.

The momentous revelation of Mann's involvement has resulted in a grotesque and malicious ad hominem smearing campaign by notorious alarmists like Joe Romm. While it in some sense may be technically correct that Wahl actually didn't say that Mann asked him to delete the emails but only forwarded an email from Briffa, that is immaterial to the case at hand. We know for certain that Mann was master minding a conspiracy to corrupt the IPCC reports. Joe Romm is only trying to attack the messenger in order to divert the attention from Mann's transgressions, in particular not telling the Penn State investigation about the forwarding. Read for yourself if you can stomach it:

A bunch of widely discredited pro-pollution scientist-smearers — Anthony “shout them down” Watts, Chris Horner, Marc Morano, Steve McIntyre — have spun a partially leaked transcript from the IG investigation into a bunch of libelous falsehoods. Sen. Inhofe has now reposted those stories on the Senate EPW website (here). The most plausible theory is that Inhofe himself leaked the information to right-wing fabricators so he could quote those stories (see below).

Outrageous! Although one could argue that Mann didn't explicitly ask Wahl to delete the emails, but instead forwarded an email from Briffa to Wahl, it is clear that Mosher (on Watt's blog), Horner and Morano where justified to report that Mann did ask Wahl to delete the emails. There is nothing libelous in that! On the contrary, Mosher, Horner and Morano are brave and truth-loving and honorable men (who by the way have since made corrections, sort of)! And so is the highly esteemed Senator Inhofe, that beacon of sanity and integrity in the US Senate. Why is Romm so obsessive about whether the information came from Inhofe? The important thing is that the information is true, or at least was in principle (although perhaps not entirely in practice) true at the time it was deliberated. And if some things happened to be "leaked" and some things were not perfectly true - so what? We shouldn't ask for impossible standards of integrity and perfection. Romm and his fellow alarmists must really be getting desperate, but they know that their house of cards is falling down! Therefore, they are burning all their bridges. We will never get any reconciliation and we will never rebuild the public's trust in climate science if people like Romm have their way! Woe, woe, woe! This misery can only be remedied with even more blogging about the hockey-stick and Climate gate.

Yet, it is comforting to see that the public is unimpressed by Romm's fit of rage. Romm's post only got 50 comments, whereas Mosher's WUWT post has received 490 comments when I'm writing this, so it is quite clear who to trust on this matter. I conclude by citing some of the insightful comments to Mosher's piece:
Tastes like pork I am told.
-
The house of cards will soon be coming down.
Kudos to all those stalwart individuals that have doggedly pursued this noble cause. I have never made a “charitable” donation that made more sense and gave better results than supporting this and other climate realist organizations.
Well done!
-
If Wahl admitted this… wait my brain is trying to understand why there are no criminal proceedings going on right now.
-
Nothing will happen. Orthodox Party members never get in trouble. Only heretics and truth-tellers get in trouble.
-
Penn State (and Penn State alumni) better realize that they are NOT too big for this cover-up to severely damage their reputation.

  2. But what was in those deleted emails? I find it a bit suspicious they admit it so easily. Maybe the truth is dirtier than we think... Maybe Mann killed president Kennedy?

    If you put a monkey (not me) in a cage, give it a button to push and then shock it with eccentricity every time the button is pushed, the monkey will learn not to push the button. For the same reason, climate scientists have learned to delete emails about "hiding the decline" etc., rather than let the emails be borrowed by some kindly crusader for the truth.

    Mr. Wahl claims the facts about his deletion of emails have been misresented. That doesn't matter! He wouldn't have deleted any emails if they weren't incriminal in some fashion or another. As people say "Where there's smoke, there's volcanoes."

    Emails by climate researchers must all be saved, no matter whether they are about climate science deception tactics, the latest demands from their proto-fascist paymasters, or the Christmas Party. They should be etched onto sheets of unbreakable glass, sealed deep in an underground cavern, in a geologically stable sedimentary rock formation, in the middle of a politically stable continent. That way, the evidence must never be deleted.

    The great and terrifying Ronald Reagan said "Tear down this Wahl!". I agree 110 percent!

  4. Well said Baron. This is surely and truly the final nail in the house of cards this time.

    Also I notice you're using another spiffing Josh cartoon.

    People often say to me his work is asinine, brainless, deluded, deranged, dumb, fatuous, foolheaded, harebrained, idiotic, ignorant, ill-contrived, imbecilic, ignorant, inane, inept, mentally deficient, misadvised, moronic, nitwitted, pea-brained, pin-headed, slackjawed, stupid, thoughtless, undiscerning, unintelligent, untalented, and the slaverings of a piss-poor artist to boot, but I tend ignore them

  6. "The most plausible theory is that Inhofe himself leaked the information to right-wing fabricators so he could quote those stories"
    If this is true, I'll add it to my list of astroturfing examples.

  7. I'm so glad that you are on our side, my dearest Baron. The Mannipulators don't stand a chance with the righteous Light of Truth on our side!

    You deniers don't know anything.

    All predictions of the AGW hypothesis have been fulfilled. The numbers are in, all you can do is deny and spin.

    Joe Romm is not a "notorious alarmist", but a serious scientist. The graph in his linked article only predicts a 4C rise in the 21st C. In other words, it's a conservative estimate, probably forced on him by politicians and big business interests - you know it's the truth. The real warming to come will be far more terrible.

    Don't say we didn't warn you.

    "it's a conservative estimate"

    No, its a bloody libural communist estimate!

    Your comeback finds no purchase with me, von Denierwaffle. And when your big oil sponsorship dries up, then where will you be ? Hung out to dry with the fires of global warming lapping at your feet.

    Why don't you head over to SkepticalScience to see what real scientific skepticism looks like? You may learn something.

    I'm probably wasting my time in this Rethuglican echo chamber.

    "Teamster Eugene Wahl has spilled the beans."

    Well that's what you get when you have union drivers and other commie sympathizers hauling precious cargo around. Probably attempting to cut a sharp corner, as per usual with these folks. Put 'er up on two wheels and she's all over.
