Consider the resemblences between the Climategate and Penn State scandals.
Note how often they admit they are cooking the data. “As one e-mail states: ‘The figure you sent is very deceptive . . . there have been a number of dishonest presentations of model results by individual authors and by IPCC [the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change].’”
So they’re aware, but they plug on. It reminds me of the Penn State scandals. A grad student, later a coach, sees a coach molesting a boy in the shower. There are plenty of other complaints, even investigations. But nothing happens. They do not act; many seem oblivious to the problem.
