CHARLIE MARTIN: ClimateGate Consequences: The Mann Report. “The investigations prompted by Climategate have just started, but scientists involved are already feeling the heat.”

Plus: “Add to this that Rajendra Pachauri, the head of the IPCC, has been caught in a number of conflicts of interest. He pushed the disappearing glaciers story in order to get millions in grants. He is implicated in defending the conclusions after he knew they were unsupported, when it became clear that the IPCC reports misstated peer-reviewed science to suit its pre-defined conclusions and when IPCC authors admitted the results were slanted to have a political result. Pachauri has, so far, resisted calls to resign, but the calls continue, and it seems impossible that Pachauri won’t develop a desire to move on to other challenges before too long.”
