    Penn State students and Central PA 912ers pressing U on Prof. Michael Mann's climate research
    ::
       State Parties -> America's Party of Pennsylvania

    A three-person panel at Penn State will report this week the results of its investigation into whether Dr. Mann has distorted climate change evidence, according to an article in the student newspaper today. http://www.collegian.psu.edu/archive/2010/02/01/mann_inquiry_conclu...

    The article mentions that "Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) -- a Penn State student group working to 'advance the principles of individual and economic freedom, limited government and traditional values' -- has taken an interest in the Mann inquiry.
    On Feb. 12, YAF will host a demonstration in front of the HUB to protest what the group feels is a violation of academic integrity, YAF member Samuel Settle said. The 9-12 Project of Central PA, a conservative group, will join the demonstration".

    Canadian citizen Steve McIntyre, whose independent attempt to replicate the Mann et al multiproxy study started the international scandal about the IPCC's embrace of the Mann et al 'hockey stick' graph, reports on his blog that the Penn State panel did not contact him. http://climateaudit.org/2010/02/01/the-first-inquiry-to-report/

    The inquiry panel reported that it could not come to a conclusion about one allegation, and the University has formed a 5-member committee to look into the matter of whether Mann did "engage in, or participate in, directly or indirectly, any actions that seriously deviated from accepted practices within the academic community".

    The initial panel consisted of Henry Foley, Penn State's vice president for research and dean of the graduate school, William Brune, head of the Penn State meteorology department, and Candice Yekel, director of the university's Office of Research Protections.

    The new panel, which has a 120-day deadline, will consist of 5 tenured faculty members.

    Three allegations were dismissed by the panel: falsifying or suppressing data, intending to delete or conceal e-mails and information, and misusing privileged or confidential information.

    More info tonight at http://www.collegian.psu.edu/archive/2010/02/03/inquiry_of_mann_mov...

    And the article promises more info will be in tomorrow's edition

    I was tickled to see that the AP version of this story was selected as one of the few articles highlighted in the breaking news section tonight of one of the Maryland papers -- Carroll County Times
    http://www.carrollcountytimes.com/articles/2010/02/04/news/breaking...

    Mann is quoted as saying he welcomes the investigation.

    On a personal note, I recall when McIntyre & McKittrick's audit paper was published. A blog called Quark Soup published some comments on the M&M article which Mann had reportedly sent via email. Mann identified an FTP directory where the data for the first Mann et al hockey stick paper was archived. Mann's email claimed that if only M&M had availed themselves of this publicly accessible resource, they wouldn't have used the wrong data in performing the audit. I was curious about the particular ftp directory Mann cited, so I did a google search to find any web pages which had linked to it or otherwise mentioned it. Not a single page was identified. Even better, the datafile that Mann identified as being obviously wrong was one of the files included in that ftp directory. Two days later, the file was removed from that directory. At the time, it reminded me of the famous vacuuming of the Rose Law Firm files during Clinton administration. When Mann took the job at Penn State, I wondered if he was running away from the honor court process at University of Virginia.

    Steve McIntyre has some interesting criticism of the just-released report, and how school officials are portraying it, at http://climateaudit.org/2010/02/03/the-mann-report/

    Astory in today's edition of the school's student paper lists the members of the new investigation committee: Mary Jane Irwin, a computer science and electrical engineering professor; Alan Walker, an anthropology and biology professor; Albert Welford Castleman, a chemistry and physics professor; Nina Jablonski, an anthropology professor; and Sarah Assmann, a biology professor.

    Penn State spokesperson Lisa Powers characterized the five as follows: "They understand the responsibilities of scientists, have impeccable credentials, have no conflict in this issue and are well respected."
