Oh gentle readers, I know you wondered what would become of those poor misunderstood players that wrote those nasty, revealing Climategate emails once the Inquiries began into their activities. Well you can relax now—-all is well. Michael Mann and the rest of the CRU leaders of the “make believe man-made global warming “ theory were found to be “just misunderstood”. The Oxburgh and the Penn State inquires are now in the books arriving at the expected results. Quite fortunately the Muir inquiry has also been packed with true believers in the magical mystery global warming theory so is likely to go our way too.
There is a dark cloud on the horizon I am sorry to report. It involves the Virginia Attorney General, Ken Cuccinelli, who has begun a civil investigation (CID) into the academic practices of former University of Virginia Professor Michael Mann.
We are gearing up to fight. We have begun a smear campaign calling Cuccinelli a “comically right-wing Attorney General”. And the UVA has issued a petition to set aside the Cuccinelli inquiry. Prominently featured in our petition is the argument that scientists are not subject to the same laws that the rest of the unwashed are. Isn’t that brilliant!
All right, now for my real voice.
There are two postings that I would like you to read. The first is one by Steve McIntyre. As I have said in my previous postings, the one person that the people who packed inquiries did not want on their panels was McIntyre. After Oxburgh Inquiry findings were published, McIntyre wrote a letter to Oxburgh asking questions about how the inquiry was conducted. Perfectly reasonable questions. He received a reply from Oxburgh that said “we aint tell you nuttin”.
McIntyre fisks this letter in a very devastating way. You can read it by clicking here.
And Chris Horner is on the Case with regard to the UVA Michael Mann CID. You can read about it by clicking here.
