IMPORTANT READ. And Dr Ball is spot on – Mann won hands down. Not through “science” but via politics, fake consensus, emotion (victimhood) and being on the ‘right’ side of the debate.
Mann understands that simple rhetoric and climate taking points will always trump science and observations because most won’t and don’t follow the important intricacies of science and observations. Not because they are unable to follow intellectually but rather they don’t have the time nor the need or passion to dig deeper and see the real truth or the other side of the coin.
IMHO the way to ‘unmask’ the ideologically driven “climate change” charade/scam/hoax is to keep pushing *historical* comparisons.
AGW alarmists detest historical perspectives.
In my ‘debate’ experience AGW alarmists will immediately deflect, smear and slime when challenged with historical comparisons.

In his essay, “Reflections on Mark Steyn’s ‘A Disgrace to the Profession’ about Dr. Michael Mann” Rick Wallace wrote,
Tim Ball, Fred Singer and others have been countering the AGW meme for a few decades, but to little avail.
He is correct. Yes, there is a slight increase in the number of skeptics as evidenced by the increased readership at WUWT, but it is a fraction of even total Internet users. Even those who read and comment on WUWT articles on the site often say they are not scientists or don’t fully understand the topic. Others demonstrate their lack of knowledge and understanding without the caveats.
But why is this? Why haven’t their voices carried? And, conversely, why was The Team so successful…

“One of the key predicted observations of anthropogenic CO2 climate theory is the existence of an equatorial tropospheric hotspot.
“But nobody has yet managed to unequivocally detect that predicted hotspot.”
IMO, one of the most important pieces of the “global warming” aka “climate change” aka “climate disruption” debate … the missing ‘Hot-Spot’.
Dr David Evans wrote an excellent piece on the missing “hot spot” back in 2008:

One thing which struck me about the recent climate science hearing is how little attention was paid to Dr. John Christy’s demonstration of a flawed climate model prediction – the missing Tropospheric hotspot.
A flawed prediction does not automatically mean the models are totally wrong – but it is a strong indicator that something isn’t right.
Consider the primary observation. The world has warmed since the mid 1850s, and for the sake of argument lets assume that the world has warmed since the mid 1930s.
Given that warming, you could propose a number of different theories for the cause of that warming, for example;
1. Chaotic shifts in ocean currents or solar influences have influenced global temperature.
2. Anthropogenic CO2 emissions have caused global temperature to rise

“Enjoy the pause in warmer temperatures while we watch to see how cool it will get.”
The inconvenient global warming “pause/hiatus” now nearing 20 years, despite record plant food (CO2) emissions over the same period. Ouch.
The Pause that Refreshes!
The recent El Nino is cooling down as shown clearly in both sea surface temperatures and lower troposphere air temperatures. The two relevant data sets are UAH v.6 and HadSSTv3.1 and now provide averages for the month of March 2017.
The cooling pattern continues in the tropical seas while ocean temperatures in the Northern Hemisphere (NH) are flat. Southern Hemisphere (SH) oceans appear to be peaking and pulled the Global SST up a bit, but both are slightly below last March.
Air temperatures in the lower troposphere tell much the same story. The greater volatility of air temperatures is evident, and we also see that the tropics (20N to 20S) and the NH (0 to 90N) are more closely aligned than are the comparable SSTs. The downward trajectory of air temps is clear after an upward blip in the NH in February.
Enjoy the pause in warmer temperatures while…
