Inquiry whitewash at Penn State, Michael Mann
Hockey Stickery Doc
By Joseph A Olson, PE Saturday, February 6, 2010
The mouse ran over the clock on his way to an urgent inquiry hearing with fellow mice in a back room at Penn State University. Turns out, that the rats piloting the IPCC liner, had misguided the vessel into a collision with the iceberg of truth in the dark of night. The liner, laded with a cargo of taxation by misrepresentation from the carbon cabal, appeared doomed. The mice were charged with producing enough whitewash to prevent the rats from being forced from the ship.
In this article, the term ‘Doc’ will be used to refer to those with PhD level education. In addition to the ‘Hockey Stick Doc’ the hearing panel included the VP Research Doc, the Dean of Earth and Mineral Science Doc and a non-Doc Research ‘Protector’. To add sheen to the whitewash, these mice also included conversations from another pair of mice, an expert Climate Doc and a magazine Editor Doc. The ten page product of the inquiry panel is available here.
Where Research and Integrity Come Together
That’s the motto for the Penn State VP for Research on their website. What ‘research’ and ‘integrity’ did together appears to follow a Doc Randy Pachauri style ‘romance’ novel plot line. A deeper meaning is apparent depending on your definition of the verb in the reveling motto.
While we can all be happy for the synchronicity in research and integrity’s mutual enjoyment, there is a troubling aspect. This event has been funded by tax payer’s money. Since the taxpayer’s involvement is not consensual, it is fair to say that taxpayer is being raped.
The first glaring defect in the whitewash is the inquiry limiting of evidence to just the publically available emails, hacked from the Hadley CRU. The content of these mails indicate a clear pattern of a wider conspiracy between Penn State and Hadley researchers and GISS and NOAA officials.
The Inquiry Report does state on page 4 that they reviewed 1075 total emails and ‘focused on 47 emails deemed relevant’. Another mouse, the Dean of Graduate School Doc was added as ‘convener’ to the committee. This Convener Doc told the committee that he had talks, with both the Editor and the Climate Docs. It was the consensus of these three, that the Hockey Stick Doc should go free.
The expert Climate Doc is Dr. Gerald North, author of the NAS 2006 report and repeated whitewasher for both the IPCC and the Hockey Stick Doc. On January 27, 2010 there was a debate at Rice University on climate change. The Climate Doc supported the AGW and IPCC position. A renowned MIT Doc presented the overwhelming evidence of natural causes for climate change.
At this debate the Climate Doc stated that he “had not read any of the Hadley emails” and this fact was mentioned in my article “No Loophole for Your Soul”. In that article, this author politely referred to the ‘warmist’ rather than embarrass the Climate Doc. His continued nefarious behavior precludes further niceties. Individuals who are uninformed or are involved co-conspirators have an ethical duty to recuse themselves in situations such as this.
Page 4 of the Inquiry Report gives the Hockey Stick Doc’s denial of all of the four accusations. The fourth charge was, “Did you engage in, or participate in, directly or indirectly, any actions that seriously deviated from accepted practices with the academic community for proposing, conduction or reporting research or other scholarly activities?”
On this charge the Inquiry Committee found that there was a “question of accepted faculty conduct surrounding scientific discourse and thus merits a review by a committee of faculty scientists”. Thus the Mann case now moves to an Investigatory Committee.
The Investigatory Committee includes a Biology Doc, an Engineering Doc, two Anthropology Docs and a Chemistry/Physics Doc. The choice of Anthropologist is puzzling as this education branch is more history than science. One can hope that as a part of their studies into past civilizations, these committee members learned the role of lies and thievery by leaders as the cause of past cultural destruction.
The time is past when our leader’s edicts are accepted due to sacred veneer. There are plenty of learned freemen of principle who can translate the academic mumbo jumbo for the unwashed masses. Now, thanks to the internet, we are no longer voiceless. As this nursery rhyme concludes let me just say, we can care less about what the cow does with the moon. We’re not bothered by what the cat does with the spoon. But, we do demand an end to the dickory by the Docs.
