    Mann, Nobel-Winning Climate Scientist, Cleared of Wrongdoing

    Posted by Charles Cooper

    STATE COLLEGE, Pa. Another Penn State University review has unanimously cleared a leading climate scientist of a research misconduct allegation stemming from leaked e-mails about global warming.

    The report said professor Michael Mann did not seriously deviate from accepted academic practices for proposing, conducting or reporting research.

    The university inquiry in February dismissed three related allegations and recommended further investigation on a fourth. A five-member panel of professors dismissed that allegation outright in the report Thursday.

    The only thing left to do is watch Ken Cuccinelli's fishing expedition go down in flames in August. Suck it, deniers.

    -------- By fellow believers in his fairy tail religion at his university.
    I long for the days when our President actually liked our country.

    Let's see what were the possible outcomes here?

    1) The review board of a university that receives and will receive untold millions from the AGW ponzi scheme can condemn a guy that helped get the whole thing started and make both the AGW gravy train and their institution look really, really bad; thus losing the money and their reputation all at once.

    OR

    2) Clear Mann and keep the money flowing and cover their collective asses.


    Hmm, tough choice.

    Wow, a disagreement in a scientific debate reduced to playground showboating. You know, I don't know why Lincoln didn't resort to that phrase in his famous meetings with Douglas. Would have saved him a lot of time. I'm beginning to like this global warm up and I believe we don't emphasize the positives enough. :)

    We're talking about a man being cleared of false accusations.

    Yeah, and OJ was cleared by a jury of his peers once too.

    Again you make an illogical conclusion, Mann may have been cleared of wrong doing but it in no way proves his hypothesis to be true.

    Wow, an academic circle-jerk cleared him. Probably a similar bunch that recently announced that Barry O is one of our greatest presidents.
