Penn State inquiry reports
Feb 2, 2010
Bishop Hill in Climate: Mann, Climate: Russell

The Penn State inquiry into the conduct of Michael Mann has apparently concluded....without apparently taking evidence from anyone who thinks that Mann might have done something wrong.

I wonder if they think that anyone will find this a very convincing inquiry.

Amusing also to see that the Penn State inquiry has completed its work before Sir Muir Russell's "independent" review of the Climatic Research Unit has even started. As I understand it, Sir Muir is still putting his team together and finalising the terms of reference.

It almost looks as if he's dragging his feet.
