Scientific Integrity is an Oxymoron

No matter what anyone says; you can’t marginalize the truth!  You can suppress it; you can ignore it; you can avoid it; you can attempt to undermine it; you can attempt to subvert it; you can attempt to organize against it; you can even laugh at it - but if we have the courage and the fortitude to stand and confront the lies, irrespective of the personal costs, the truth will stand the test of time.  Rich Kozlovich

The Other Scandal In Unhappy Valley
by Rand Simberg on July 13, 2012

So it turns out that Penn State has covered up wrongdoing by one of its employees to avoid bad publicity.

But I’m not talking about the appalling behavior uncovered this week by the Freeh report. No, I’m referring to another cover up and whitewash that occurred there two years ago, before we learned how rotten and corrupt the culture at the university was. But now that we know how bad it was, perhaps it’s time that we revisit the Michael Mann affair, particularly given how much we’ve also learned about his and others’ hockey-stick deceptions since. Mann could be said to be the Jerry Sandusky of climate science, except that instead of molesting children, he has molested and tortured data in the service of politicized science that could have dire economic consequences for the nation and planet.

To review, when the emails and computer models were leaked from the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia two and a half years ago, many of the luminaries of the “climate science” community were shown to have been behaving in a most unscientific manner. Among them were Michael Mann, Professor of Meteorology at Penn State, whom the emails revealed had been engaging in data manipulation to keep the blade on his famous hockey-stick graph, which had become an icon for those determined to reduce human carbon emissions by any means necessary........

Editor's Note - please follow the link to see the whole impact what must be considered a massive level of corruption, at many levels,  in American Universities.  Currently I have an Education Watch link on the side which will be dealing with the failure of the public education system and why this failure exists.  I will be adding a link dealing with the intellectual and moral corruption of American universities soon.
