Posted on 12/19/2009 9:54:29 AM PST by John Semmens
In a Washington Post op ed, Penn State University Professor Michael Mann insisted that Palin and other global warming deniers have distorted the content of the e-mails from the British University of East Anglias Climate Research Unit.
Ms. Palin and her ilk are pulling words out of context to create the impression that global warming is a hoax, Mann said. She is merely broadcasting her ignorance of scientific terminology in pursuit of a political agenda bent on preventing governments from exercising the necessary control to avert climate catastrophe.
Among the scientific terms Governor Palin is said to have misconstrued are the words bogus, misleading, and cooked numbers. These are very valid terms in the proper context, Mann argued. Those who arent scientists cannot be expected to understand that these words may describe techniques that have been widely accepted in the academic community as necessary in the struggle to obtain grant funding.
Confounding or contradictory data could prove deadly to the fate of a funding request, Mann continued. Cooking the numbers, suppressing nonconforming evidence and misleading prospective donors are minor transgressions compared to the alternative of tapped-out funding.

haha... this ain’t just about the memos. they just help put this whole thing into context.
Yeah, his word is golden.
Of course, that golden color is piss, which is about what his data is worth.
Cooking the numbers? Throwing out data that does not support the conclusion you reached before any data collection in the first place? If this guy is a scientist, I am the Queen of Sheba.
“Taken out of context’’ Well Mr. Liberal scientist it just burns your britches when that happens, doesn’t it? Now you know how it is for we conservatives.
Ok, so Sarah Palin actually wants to destroy humanity...
who is giving these idiots science degrees?
At first I thought he was complaining but then I realized that he is an expert at cooking the books, therefore, he is providing his expert opinion oh how others are attempting to do what he has done.
On one side we have “the deniers” and on the other side we have “the falsifiers”.
Mann fits the simple categorization of “denier.” Bet.
People who didn’t see the “satire” KW beat me to my usual “3...2...1” LOL
Again, it is really funny because it is so plausable.
THEY ARE CLIMATE LIARS!
This is Michael Mann of the famous Mike Trick! This dirtbag should be in jail.
Mary Christ-mas Patriots
Meanwhile, the AGW LIARS destroy, distort, and fake the data ...
