Francis T. Manns AKA Dr. No

What is it with Canadian mineral explorationists and climate denialism?

Francis T. Manns (AKA FT Manns) goes by a number of usernames: Art Esian, Dr. No (or Dr. NoNo), Entrylevel, etc.

“Dr. No” from the Bond film of the same name. Image courtesy of Wikicommons.

He was at one time a publishing geologist. He has worked for Northgate Exploration Ltd. He created a denialist PowerPoint presentation which has been used by the Friends of Science front group. He is apparently now 64, suffering from sciatica, and a self-described “displaced person”, living in Toronto.

He has spammed a rather incoherent rant about the oceans being basically immune to acidification on a dizzying number of blogs, including this one. It seems he also engages in blatant sock puppetry, or is suffering from a severe mental disorder, as he converses with himself in thread comments.

He also claims that CO2 is “plant fertilizer”.

One response to “Francis T. Manns AKA Dr. No

  1. Mann is apparently still at work, dropping copy/paste denialist comments on varied and sundry blogs, mine being one.

    This blog has found that Mann has visited no less than 87 other sites as some sort of half-hearted campaign to destroy the theory of global warming.

    I don’t think Dr. No stands a chance…unless he starts using sharks with frickin’ lasers on their heads!
