Do global warming deniers know what the word “absolved” means?
What it means is that a big part of the frozen crap they’ve been dishing out just melted away.
A Pennsylvania State University panel just cleared Dr. Michael E. Mann of any wrongdoing. Dr. Mann was one of the notable climate scientists at the center of the recent hacked emails controversy.
The panel of scientists looked through all of Dr. Mann’s email correspondences, including the handful of sentences that every conservative hack in the world has been trying to inflate into a worldwide conspiracy.
It bears repeating:
The inquiry found no wrongdoing.
Of the major findings:
When Dr. Mann said in an e-mail that he had used a “trick” in a graph that showed global warming in the 20th century, he wasn’t manipulating data, as most deniers claimed. The so-called “trick” was nothing more than a statistical method used to bring two or more different kinds of data sets together in a legitimate fashion. Dr. Mann’s use of this technique was reviewed by a broad array of peers in the field and they unanimously agreed.
The board also found that Dr. Mann didn’t destroy any data. All of the data in question was produced to the Penn State board.
