Silencing the skeptics - an update

I reported last month that renowned Canadian climatologist Dr. Tim Ball was facing a lawsuit from Prof. Michael Mann, Director of Earth System Science Center at Penn State. Mann is the author of the now discredited "hockey stick" graph that the UN relied upon to promote the global warming / climate change hysteria.

Mann has enlisted a Canadian legal firm and there are indications that the David Suzuki Foundation may be of funding the legal action.

Dr. Ball is appealing for help. Here's an update from John O. Sullivan.

Esteemed climate scientist, Tim Ball faces two costly courtroom libel battles. Here he reveals his concerns and appeals for help with his legal fees.

Dr. Tim Ball is widely recognized as one of Canada’s first qualified climate scientists and has long taken a brave stand in speaking out on corruption and unethical practices. Two global warming doomsayers Ball has targeted, professors Michael Mann and Andrew Weaver are now suing Tim for libel with the backing of Big Green donors.

Many suspect the deep-pocketed David Suzuki Foundation is bankrolling Weaver and Mann. Suzuki is reported as wanting skeptics like Ball “put in prison.” Vancouver libel lawyer, Roger D. McConchie is the well-paid legal attack dog.

Critics suspect that the Suzuki Foundation is throwing money at the case in the hope that his target, who has no big corporate backers, will quit as his legal fees spiral. But Ball is determined he won’t be bounced out of this contest.

Below is this author’s (JOS) forthright interview with Dr. Ball (TB).
You should go to Sullivan's website and read the full interview. Then go to and make a donation to support Dr. Ball. I already did.

And do not support the David Suzuki Foundation.
