Cleared


Michael Mann, the former UVa climatologist now at Penn State, has been cleared unanimously by a second Penn State committee of scientific misconduct.

This has not stopped Virginia AG Ken Cuccinelli from pursuing a witch hunt, ostensibly to investigate grant fraud (though no state grant money was at issue in Mann’s work).

Sure, there’s a tendency among climate-change skeptics to believe that any internal university probe would be nothing more than a whitewash, and I have a certain sympathy for that viewpoint (except when it comes from groups like the Competitive Enterprise Institute that are funded by carbon interests). But from Day One in Mann’s case, there has never been any there there.
