It Won't Make Any Difference to the Zombie Liars

Slashdot Science Story | Climategate's Final Days
"Climategate may be on its way out. An investigatory committee at Pennsylvania State University has formally cleared climate scientist Dr. Michael Mann of any scientific misconduct. Mann was central in the so-called Climategate scandal, where illegally leaked emails were purported to indicate examples of scientists trying to cover up any lack of global warming in their data. This finding by the committee (PDF) is another in a series of independent investigations that have all concluded that no misconduct has occurred."

Not that this will stop the climate change deniers from bringing up "Climategate" as "proof" that global climate change is a "fraud." Just like the alleged ACORN "pimp videos" are still being trotted out as "evidence" that the organization is up to some ill-defined, but nefarious plotting at the behest of George Soros, or Nancy Pelosi, or someone, even though not one but two investigations found that the videos had been "heavily edited" and that the organization, while having some flaws in its management, had done nothing wrong.

We live in the age of the Zombie Lie, where misinformation never dies.

My brother in law, an Annapolis grad, pilot and engineer, told me that 93% of climate scientists are lying about climate change so they can continue to receive grant money.

However, he's quite convinced that the 7% of scientists who say climate change isn't happening and who, coincidentally, are being funded by the energy industry, are telling the truth.
