Climategate – Penn State Whitewash Of Michael Mann Wont Be The Last Word

The post climategate
whitewash investigations carried out at Penn State and the farcical CRU investigations must have left the warming alarmists with sense of relief that they had got away with all the lies, and business as usual will once again be the order of the day at the Church of Climatology.
In their dying gasps of power, the Labour regime of Gordon Brown, fronted by the really dumb looking Miliband brother Ed, and firmly backed by Gordon Brown has been trying to restart the AGW scam.
Things are looking good for the wealth redistributionists and one world governmentalists, they have been exonerated by closing ranks and resolutely lying, as Adolph Hitler said “If you tell a big enough lie, tell it frequently enough, it will be believed”. In reality though all is not as it seems:
When a Penn State board of inquiry unilaterally decided that Michael Mann had broken no rules in the climate-data scandal, global-warming alarmists breathed a sigh of relief, thinking the most damaging episode in their effort to save the planet was behind them. They were wrong.
The geology professor’s 1998 climate study, which showed a sharp increase in the world’s temperatures in the past century, was seen by many as proof that climate change was rapidly occurring and that humans played a significant role in the change. Despite ongoing criticism, the study formed the backbone of global warming theories — until leaked e-mails cast fresh doubt on Mann’s methodology and integrity, notably “the trick” he used to make his data so compelling.
But the final say will be in the hands of a skeptical inspector general at the National Science Foundation, the primary funder of the research into global warming. According to published documents obtained by FoxNews.com, the IG must determine whether Penn State’s investigation was adequate.
A British review board also looked into the leaked e-mails, studying allegations that East Anglia researchers had tampered with data or perverted the peer review process. That panel found the British scientists innocent on March 31 — although the panel’s review included just a single day of testimony, and also drew ire from warming skeptics.
On the campus at Penn State, the panel’s findings continue to cause controversy. Young Americans for Freedom has launched a petition drive to reopen the investigation, this time by an independent body. The conservative student group said that the panel’s findings “read more like a letter of recommendation” than an investigative report. The group also pointed out that Penn didn’t look at the Wegman report, a congressional sponsored panel that looked into Mann’s work in 2006 and criticized much of his research.
Documents sent to Fox by insiders at the National Science Foundation’s Inspectors Office indicate that the office is also concerned about the Penn State inquiry and is looking to review the investigation.
