Penn State defies Facebook campaign calling for it to drop climate lecture

“University cites its First Amendment commitment in supporting its climate scientist Michael Mann’s right to give lecture.”

In an uncharacteristically angry post at the New York Times’s Dot Earth blog, Andy Revkin has hit out at a “shameful attack on free speech”.

  1. If Mann wants to continue to make an ass of himself, then let him. If somebody asks how he put the Hockey stick graph together, they may see that its crap

  2. Yeppers, deniers feel free to shout their own ignorance while muzzling scientists who are telling the truth!

  3. Will they have the same attitude for Free Speech when Right Wingers or Conservatives wish to have THEIR contoverisal or RELIGIOUS speakers on campus?! How about someone speaking against abortion or Homoseuxuality?!?!

  4. The last attendance at a Mann public appearance was so meager that he blamed the lack of attendance on cold weather. Let’s see how many turn out for this one.
