Michael Mann sued some folks, Tim Ball, Mark Steyn, and National Review because they “made fun” of his hockey stick. The Canadian court (where he is suing Tim Ball) would like to see the hockey stick data so it can review Michael Mann’s defense of it and render judgment.  He refuses to share it with the court.

Penn State climate scientist, Michael ‘hockey stick’ Mann commits contempt of court in the ‘climate science trial of the century.’ Prominent alarmist shockingly defies judge and refuses to surrender data for open court examination. Only possible outcome: Mann’s humiliation, defeat and likely criminal investigation in the U.S.

Another win for Mann Made Global Warming. Except for the part where the court throws out the suit, and Mann could find himself charged with,

“..mandatory punitive court sanctions, including a ruling that Mann did act with criminal intent when using public funds to commit climate data fraud.”

The only way to avoid that is to prove you’re not guilty of fraud. Can Mann do the time for his crime or will he finally give up the goods?
