HERE is the article. The two scientists are apoplectic that their paper, not peer reviewed apparently, would be questioned as is their own veracity. The investigation started when a whistle-blower turned them in. Something to do with a fabrication of science and grant funds. My guess is the anonymous whistle-blower is now in the witness protection program, afraid the global warming police are looking to take him/her out. But I digress.
With all the fabricated information by the so-called scientists, (mostly to protect the billions they get for their "research") it is hard to take anything they publish seriously any more. If they had verifiable, peer reviewed scientific proof maybe they could have come out of this clean. But, no, they had to fib and thank goodness there are a few scientists in the field that would not stand for the deceptive practices of these rent-seekers.
I do not have a lot of hope however that the Obama Administration inspectors will issue a truthful report. I have seen many of these kinds of investigations go nowhere over the years. The Spotted Owl was the first big lie by the government in conjunction with "Big Environment" and we got to see the results of that lie. Thousands of people became unemployed, whole towns became ghost towns and families torn apart. Subsequent scientific investigations proves the little owl was plentiful and could and did, live in many different places. Not just in "old growth" trees, what ever that is. But, timber harvesting was curtailed and moved to Canada. The eco's won. Well, now a whole bunch of people that don't think these phony scientific practices should be allowed to dictate policy are out there keeping an eye on the "enablers".
The polar bear is abundant and not endangered. The ice is abundant and cold and firm. No longer does government reporting become a slam dunk to affect policy. If we are going to pay scientists to investigate our world we want the truth, not lies. The polar bear bear scientific duo under investigation are rightly worried as any rent seeking scientist should be if they stretched or fabricate the truth to suit some political and economic agenda. If they lie, they should go to jail for theft of taxpayers money.
