When I posted the last bit on Climategate, all scientists had been exonerated.
But there was one paper that had only been released as a working copy, not the official version.
It is the Pennsylvania State University's own internal review of to Micheal Mann and his work on the "Hockey Stick" which I use as a lead to my blog.
It has now been released, and here's their final conclusion:
Conclusion of the Investigatory Committee as to whether research misconduct occurred:
The Investigatory Committee, after careful review of all available evidence, determined that there is no substance to the allegation against Dr. Michael E. Mann, Professor, Department of Meteorology, The Pennsylvania State University.
More specifically, the Investigatory Committee determined that Dr. Michael E. Mann did not engage in, nor did he participate in, directly or indirectly, any actions that seriously deviated from accepted practices within the academic community for proposing, conducting, or reporting research, or other scholarly activities.
The decision of the Investigatory Committee was unanimous.
So, Climategate is dead, right? The Deniers will now see the errors of their ways, right?
I think I see a yellow-throated pig flying by...
