Michael Mann cleared by Penn State inquiry on three counts

 

The results of the recent inquiry of Prof. Michael Mann by Penn State University completely exonerates him on three counts related to the infamous hacked emails stolen from the Climate Research Unit at East Anglia University. These emails, without content scientifically, have been used by right-wing media and politicians to launch a full-scale attack on climate science and climate scientists, and in particular on Michael Mann. These scurrilous attacks are without merit. Michael Mann is a front-line active climate researcher with numerous scientific accomplishments.

Here are the details of the investigation results:

Allegation 1: Did you engage in, or participate in, directly or indirectly, any actions with the intent to suppress or falsify data?

Decision 1. As there is no substance to this allegation, there is no basis for further examination of this allegation...

 

Allegation 2: Did you engage in, or participate in, directly or indirectly, any actions with the intent to delete, conceal or otherwise destroy emails, information and/or data, related to AR4, as suggested by Phil Jones?

Decision 2. As there is no substance to this allegation, there is no basis for further examination of this allegation...

 

Allegation 3: Did you engage in, or participate in, directly or indirectly, any misuse of privileged or confidential information available to you in your capacity as an academic scholar?

Decision 3. As there is no substance to this allegation, there is no basis for further examination of this allegation...

A fourth allegation will be the subject of further investigation.

HERE is a recent analysis.
