    To return to the topic of this thread, go here.

    I think the thread got off topic by way of considering the politicized homosexual agenda as an alliterative example of politicized "slap-shot science".

    Slap-Shot Climate Science; Michael Mann Takes Another Swing at His Climate Change Critics

    The Washington Times (Washington, DC)

    March 7, 2012 | Copyright

    Byline: Anthony J. Sadar, SPECIAL TO THE WASHINGTON TIMES

    [snip]

    In a new book, The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars: Dispatches from the Front Lines, Mr. Mann, a Penn State University professor and director of the university's Earth System Science Center, proffers a solid defense of the hockey-stick climate reconstruction of the past 1,000 years. ....

    Mr. Mann's book will undoubtedly be quoted and referenced for many years to come to support the current status quo in the academic world of climate science. But therein lies one of the book's major weaknesses: It represents a limited perspective.

    Throughout The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars, there is the continuous resorting to childish, unprofessional name-calling. Mr. Mann seems to relish the phrase climate change denier. On one page alone (Page 193), he uses the silly phrase or some variant of it seven times. The phrase is obviously absurd because no one denies that climate changes.

    Such childishness is related to a limited perspective and belies a narrow progressive political tactic to smear anyone who dares to challenge established orthodoxy....

    The book's unintentionally arrogant tone, all too typical of progressive academia, is perhaps a hint of what, unfortunately, irritates Americans....
