So are you saying Mann knew he wasn't awarded the Nobel Peace Prize? If so, why did he claim he was awarded the prize in his upcoming lawsuit?
From his lawsuit:
"Dr. Mann is a climate scientist whose research has focused on global warming. In 2007, along with other researchers, he was one of the first to document the steady rise in surface temperatures during the 20th century and the steep increase in measured temperatures since the 1950s. As a result of this research, Dr. Mann and his colleagues were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize."

A statement which is entirely consistent with the facts:

"The IPCC issued the certificates with the text on them to IPCC participants, including Mann. "

What you cretinous conspiracy theorists need to recognise is that the lies about Mann you have read and repeated are entirely inconsistent with the facts, something which the courts are about to confirm.

But of course arguing over petty semantic details is a lot more comfortable than recognising that your stupid conspiracy theory is about to be rejected by a court of law, one place where evifence is supreme.

'Michael Mann has never been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize'

Nobel Committee Rebukes Michael Mann for falsely claiming he was ‘awarded the Nobel Peace Prize’

Mann was one of a 'select group' of a mere 2,000 people to receive a 'commemorative certificate of involvement'...

Here's a photo of Mann's certificate:

I'd call this a mild rebuke:
‘[Mann] did not receive any personal certificate’—Geir Lundestad, Dir. Prof. for The Norwegian Nobel Inst.: 1) Michael Mann has never been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. 2) He did not receive any personal certificate. He has taken the diploma awarded in 2007 to IPCC (& to Al Gore) & made his own text underneath this authentic-looking diploma’

Nobel Committee corrects Mann:‘The text underneath diploma is entirely his own. We issued only the diploma to IPCC as such. No individuals on IPCC side received anything in 2007’—Nobel Committee:‘Unfortunately we often experience that members of organizations that have indeed been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize issue various forms of personal diplomas to indicate that they personally have received the Nobel Peace Prize. They have not.’

Petty symantics details?

>>Let’s not forget that much, if not all, of Mann’s lawsuit is an appeal to the DC court for it to uphold the rightness and sanctity of Mann’s beatified authority on all matters environmental. Therefore, lawyers for Steyn, Rand Simberg and their respective publishers, the National Review and the Competitive Enterprise Institute, defendants in the case, may reasonably and fairly assert that for the past five years Mann has unscrupulously touted these false claims to unjustly further his personal, financial and political ambitions. With his saintly mantle shattered he can expect an onslaught of accusations of related scientific misconduct. PSU’s own policy statement suggests Mann has certainly breached their code of conduct:

“Academic integrity includes a commitment by all members of the University community not to engage in or tolerate acts of falsification, misrepresentation or deception. Such acts of dishonesty violate the fundamental ethical principles of the University community and compromise the worth of work completed by others.”[1]

Expect all eyes to be on PSU’s hierarchy to see whether they dodge their own internal disciplinary policies. After the humiliation of the Jerry Sandusky scandal PSU will get no wriggle room to save a second bad boy. Likewise, the NSF has a detailed history of handling cases where individuals have falsified their degrees, memberships, prizes and other accomplishments. An AAAS report tells us,“Federal agencies finding scientific misconduct have subjected researchers to a variety sanctions from a letter of reprimand to debarment from receiving federal funding for a number of years.”[2]

Conspiracy theorist fantasy.

And really dumb to talk about "falsification, misrepresentation or deception" as Mann is suing people who said the same.

And going to win.

Get your head round that, dumb conspiracy theorist.

You didn't read the article, did you?

You'd see how edits were made to Mann's bio at Penn State and other sites.

Mann cited himself as a 'Nobel Peace Prize winner'. He wasn't. He misrepresented his credentials, and did so for years.

But I guess ethics and credibility are qualities that only apply to the 'other guys' when you're "debunking" them.

If it weren't for double standards, warmists would have none.

One cause of this shift, presumably, is the fact that global warming seems to be taking a break. The average global temperature hasn't risen in 15 years, a deviation from climatologists' computer-simulated predictions.

This is a difficult state of affairs for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which will release its next assessment report on global warming on Friday, Sept. 27.

None of the authors involved in the report are allowed to comment publicly on the report's contents before its official release. Only after days of closed-door negotiations -- which begin in Stockholm this Monday, Sept. 23 -- will the international forecasting body release its findings.

This much, though, is certain -- the new predictions will be essentially the same as the old ones, albeit a little more precise. The only adjustment the IPCC is expected to make is an increase in the predicted rise of sea levels. The new report is expected to forecast that coastal waters may rise by between 29 and 82 centimeters (11 and 32 inches) by the end of the century.

The crucial question, however, is: How will the IPCC address the pause in global warming? And how reliable are the computer models on which the predictions are based, if they failed to foresee the current temperature plateau?
