Academic freedom lecturer takes on claims of climate change deniers

Clearly, Penn State University’s Professor Michael Mann has no sense of humor, nor does he have a sense of irony.

Speaking at the “Lecture on Academic and Intellectual Freedom,” Mann gave a speech preaching for the end of climate change debate at the University of Michigan, after Michigan’s President Mark Schlissel introduced guest speaker Michael Mann by saying that the University of Michigan will always be “an inalienable forum for discovery, debate, and discussion.”

This 27th annual lecture honors three former U-M faculty members—Chandler Davis, Clement Markert and Mark Nickerson—who refused to testify in front of the infamous House UN-American Activities Committee in 1954.

Honestly, Michael Mann sounded more like a member of the UN-American Activity Committee than an academic and scientist advocating “discovery, debate, and discussion.” by Steve Heins
