Michael Mann, who has staked his reputation on being right about climate change, has apparently abandoned the science that he said he’s kept his “head buried in” for “much” of his career.

Mann, a climate scientist chosen to help the Democratic Party draft its election-year platform, has concluded that “these tools that we’ve spent years developing increasingly are unnecessary.”

So if the global warming alarmists should no longer use these tools — the climate prediction computer models — to badger the rest of us, then what should they use? Well, just tell some tales, of course.

“We can see climate change, the impacts of climate change, now, playing out in real time, on our television screens, in the 24-hour news cycle,” Mann told Democrats at a platform draft hearing last month. “The signal of climate change is no longer subtle, it is obvious.”
