Dr. Mann is clearly committed to labeling folks like me “deniers,” which doesn’t really bother me, so long as everybody is clear about what is being denied. What do scientists (and I’m just a lowly chemist, not an exalted climatologist or anything) like me deny? Let us review.

It appears Mann and Oreskes chose the Lakeland Times as a somewhat unlikely venue to put on the record every lie and half-truth about The Heartland Institute spread (with their help) on the Internet. So here, for the record, is some truth-telling.
Modern climate alarmism was launched with the 2001 IPCC report featuring the now infamous “hockey stick” graph. This showed global temperature flat for 1,000 years and then soaring skywards from about 1900 onwards. There is just no way to say this politely – this graph was based on lies.
This video is from back in 2007 by the Freezing Emperors from Minnesotans for Global Warming — who wrote and produced the most-famous global warming parody song of all time, the Michael Mann-mocking “Hide the Decline.”
There’s a bit of cross-talk, but John Coleman noted that Al Gore took only one science class in college, taught by Roger Revelle, and “Al Gore got a ‘D’ in it … and has made a billion dollars on climate change.”
“The Deliberate Corruption of Climate Science” is a history of the people and groups who used unwarranted fear of human-caused climate change to undermine science by influencing governments and the private sector to spend vast sums of money on scientists who agreed to climb aboard the global warming gravy train.
Despite the growing worldwide recognition that global warming—now called climate change—is a hoax and that the Earth has been in a cooling cycle going on seventeen years, those most responsible for it continue to put forth baseless “science” about it.

I’ve interacted with a lot of people on the skeptical side of the aisle and they are – without exception – good, decent, sincere and well-meaning folks. That goes in particular for the folks at Heartland.
