Polar bear blues

The investigation of the scientist who started the panic over the poor, drowning polar bear continues.  Special agents from the Interior Department’s inspector general’s office (sidebar: why does every frickin’ Department have its own police force?  Bureaucracy upon bureaucracy)  are “examining the ‘wrong numbers,’ ‘miscalculations’ and ‘scientific misconduct.'”  Read the full story, here.

 It is very telling how the scientist in question defends himself.  “‘Well, that’s not scientific misconduct anyway,’ Monnett said.  ‘If anything, it’s sloppy.'”

Ah, yes.  The ‘I’m not a liar, just a crap scientist’ defense.  I think we’ll be hearing a lot of that in the coming years from the AGWers.
