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.
