Mock-a-lanche triggered after global warming alarmist solicits questions

#AskDrMann What's a hashtag without a graph?

— Scottie Mhic Leòid (@variouspenguins) September 17, 2014

Columnist, author and radio host Mark Steyn is being sued by man-made global warming alarmist and grand designer of the “hockey stick” graph, Michael Mann.

Today, Mann solicited climate questions using the #AskDrMann hashtag:

Looking forward to #AskDrMann questions. Note that trolls & those engaged in bad faith will be blocked & reported.

— Michael E. Mann (@MichaelEMann) September 17, 2014

Guess what happened next.

The #AskDrMann hashtag is still a complete and utter disaster. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

Mann’s threat to “block and report” detractors didn’t seem to be much of a deterrent after Steyn helped get things rolling:

.@MichaelEMann Let the blocking begin! #AskDrBlock

Mann might blame global warming for questions like these:

#AskDrMann Would you trade your fake nobel certificate to stop the oceans arisin'?

If 1970's scientists, with the best available science, were wrong about Global Cooling, who's to say you aren't wrong too? #AskDrMann

Should you be walking around in public with such a brittle ego? #askdrmann

#AskDrMann When you claimed to be a Nobel laureate, didn't you make yourself a "public figure" under New York Times v. Sullivan?

Can you cite some specific examples where you predicted a climatological event and then it happened as predicted? #AskDrMann @MichaelEMann

Since Twitter is only 140 characters let me lay it out to you in a pic… #AskDrMann @Schenck @MichaelEMann

#AskDrMann please explain how this is possible I thought all the ice melted and all the polar bears died?

#AskDrMann Why does even @MLiebreich think your work is garbage and hopes you will get off the stage soon? @MichaelEMann

#AskDrMann Should I expend the carbon necessary to travel to NYC for the climate march you just referenced?

When you say Sandy was related to "climate change", would you call that a "mistake" or a "lie"? #AskDrMann @MichaelEMann @Paladin1969

Can you explain why temps and CO2 level have no notable correlation in the present interglacial? @MichaelEMann @MarkSteynOnline #AskDrMann

The icecap-melting questions for Mann kept coming:

#askdrmann:: Why did you write "The McIntyre and McKitrick paper is pure scientific fraud"?

— Tom Nelson (@tan123) September 17, 2014

#askdrmann I wish to purchase some carbon, who do I make the cheque out to? Cui bono??? @MichaelEMann @ClimateHawkVote

Is there a way to stop people who note you're rubbish at science? #AskDrMann @MichaelEMann

#askdrmann @MichaelEMann in what way do your unprofessional comments regarding Dr Curry's work advance climate science?

— Richard Soles (@TemudjinOh) September 17, 2014

.@MichaelEMann will I be sued for defamation before or after you block me? #AskDrMann

— Evan Alexander (@AEvan720) September 17, 2014

#AskDrMann why does your latest legal brief falsely claim that you had nothing to do with the WMO cover picture @MichaelEMann ?

#AskDrMann if global warming causes the polar vortex, why would anyone oppose global warming?

#AskDrMann @MarkSteynOnline Mike, there's a giant orb in the sky. Let's harness it. Use it to regulate Earth's climate. Problem solved, no?

Earth hasn't warmed in almost two decades. Possible all that "missing" heat was on Lois Lerner's hard drive when it "crashed"? #AskDrMann

#AskDrMann Since tree rings fail to match temps recently, how can you be confident they accurately match past temps?

Antarctic sea ice set new record high yesterday, beating record set this time last year:

#AskDrMann Will you sign my hockey stick, please?

— Nicholas Wrighton (@nwrighton) September 17, 2014

Is it getting hotter in here?

Steyn has written an update as to where Mann’s lawsuit stands:

The Lonesomest Mann in Town #DefendFreeSpeech #DoctorFraudpants @MichaelEMann

— Mark Steyn (@MarkSteynOnline) September 17, 2014

In the meantime, maybe Mann or Al Gore can explain this:
