On Penn State's inquiry into Michael Mann:
It is not surprising that Michael Mann's own university circled the wagons and narrowed the focus of its own investigation to declare the "hockey stick" climate change model purveyor ethical.
The fact that the investigation cited Mann's "level of success in proposing research and obtaining funding" as some sort of proof that he was meeting the "highest standards," tells you that Mann is considered a sacred funding cash cow.
At the height of his financial career, similar sentiments could have been said about Bernie Madoff.
Mann has become the posterboy of the corrupt and disgraced climate science echo chamber. No university whitewash investigation will change that simple reality.
Flashback Dec. 2009: Penn State's announcement of its investigation "is so complimentary to Mann, it almost reads like the press release of the verdict, published prematurely." To read the Guardian article, go here now.
MIT's Richard Lindzen on Mann: "Penn State has clearly demonstrated that it is incapable of monitoring violations of scientific standards of behavior internally."
Physicist Lubos Motl: "Penn State officially joins Michael Mann's scam . . . remembered as a black day in its history."
