Michael Mann Falsely Claims He Was Awarded Nobel Peace Prize Michael Mann was never awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, the director of the Nobel Institute says, despite Manns public claims that he was. In court papers filed in connection with a defamation suit, Mann claims he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Global warming alarmists who assist the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in its various reports frequently describe themselves as Nobel Prize winners. -- Washington Examiner writer Thomas Richard sent an email to Geir Lundestad, director of the Nobel Institute, pointing out how Mann claims to be a Nobel Prize winner. Richard asked if Manns Nobel Prize claim is true. Lundestad responded: 1) Michael Mann has never been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. 2) He did not receive any personal certificate. He has taken the diploma awarded in 2007 to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (and to Al Gore) and made his own text underneath this authentic-looking diploma. 3) The text underneath the diploma is entirely his own. We issued only the diploma to the IPCC as such. No individuals on the IPCC side received anything in 2007.
