Read your own link:
Michael Mann even twitted, "IPCC certificate acknowledging me "contributing to award of the Nobel Peace Prize". Do they want my birth certif too?" It would appear the answer is yes.
Why are you a neme caller? Because you are a liar. And you are late with 2012's gossip.
Also from your link an update:
Update from Climate Depot: The IPCC issued the certificates with the text on them to IPCC participants, including Mann. Mann did not add the text himself. Here is a photo of a UN IPCC issued certificate (LINK)
"temember"[your spelling] you are no judge or jury in this matter. Wait for "there"[your spelling] decision.

You're presupposing that it is a crisis in the first place.

But you still post over and over again driving up your own carbon footprint while still demanding others reduce theirs.

Global warming hypocrites are everywhere so you aren't alone.

You might take some solace in that, but it doesn't make you any less a hypocrite.

If the government didn't give subsidies for biofuels that made growing crops for fuel more lucrative than crops for food and feed then there would be more supply for food and feed.
That answer was expected.

Rather than the facts, you prefer to blame government or scientists for the crisis.

That will catch up to you someday.

Once again, using crops for fuel reduces available crops for food.
This is truly a man-made 'crisis'.
Are coffee, chocolate, hops, and barley used in ethanol production?

If not, there must be something to that story, and you can't blame it on the bad ole government.

Climate change is truly a man-made crisis.

You're getting it now.

The end doesn't have to be nigh, if we act soon and act vigorously.

But, thanks for the support.

How obtuse.

If government subsidies provide a better payout than any crop, it will be produced instead.

>>Just like in Germany, where biofuel incentives caused farmers to shift from barley to corn, in North America, farmers have been switching from hops production to corn, leading to a worldwide shortage. In the United States, where a quarter of hops are grown, acreage fell 30 per cent between 1995 and 2006, according to the Los Angeles Times. Barley malt prices are also on the rise.

It is science, science denier: Jeff Severinghaus, a geoscientist at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, said that through the use of radioactive isotopes, scientists are more than 99 percent sure that much of the carbon in the air has human fingerprints on it. And because of basic physics, scientists are 99 percent certain that carbon traps heat in what is called the greenhouse effect.

Hence, more than 99% certainty that modern global warming is a man-made malady.

You are a burning fossil fueled hypocrite.

I didn't. But neither do I need to exaggerate them, as you have. Or blame them solely, over other factors.

Scientists equate globalwarming with human activities with a 95% certainty. That is equivalent with the certainty for tobacco causing health problems. Where do you get your information that this is not so? Some blog?

Those policies are what makes America great! The private sector would run ramped if it was not for the government policies. Much of those policies are paid for by the private sector influence in Congress. Who can we trust? I'll trust the democratic policies of the USA.

It is not a crisis today, but that is what we want to protect against. Going around screaming that the scientists are calling global warming a crisis today is disingenuous. Scientist are simply trying to get a handle on future problems caused by adding all that CO2 from burning fossil fuels.
