Event Description

Do you care about academic integrity? Recently three Penn State employees are supposed to conclude an inquiry into whether PSU professor Michael Mann violated university policy. If these three employees so choose, they can clear Mann of wrongdoing and cut off any further investigation.

If the initial inquiry decides that Mann needs to be investigated further, a committee of five tenured Penn State professors will be appointed to do the job. Again, there will be no external oversight. Does this seem right to you?

Even if the Penn State investigation committee finds that Mann did wrong, they are under no obligation to inform the public—the only people they are required to inform are Mann’s donors. Again, does this seem right to you?

Come join us when we take a stand for honesty, integrity and truth on February 12th, at noon, in front of the Hetzel Union Building on Penn State’s University Park Campus (Pollock Road entrance). Your commitment and concern will make a difference! This rally is jointly sponsored by PSU Young Americans for Freedom and The 9-12 Project of Central PA.

PLEASE NOTE THE FOCUS AND INTENT OF THIS IS PROTEST IS ABOUT PSU AND ITS ACADEMIC INTEGRITY. This is NOT intended to be about Climategate issues although feel free to bring your hockey sticks!!

At the present time, I plan on attending and have it entered in my calendar. But since I am trying to find a job, something may come up between now and then

Have you read Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged"?

If so, do you recognize the State Science Institute in PSU?

If not, you are missing important insights into why America is on her current course and how it is possible for a prestigious university to publish junk science.

Academic Misconduct Threatens National Sovereignty, Individual Freedom


Your future and the future of our nation are about to be compromised by Cap and Trade legislation based upon apparently falsified scientific data. The stakes are high, but, by attacking the root of the threat, we can avert the looming catastrophe.

Join is for Rally for Academic Integrity Friday, Feb. 12, noon at the Penn State HUB, Pollock Road entrance or write to Penn State’s president and your legislators.


America’s sovereignty and the quality of life of every citizen hang in the balance.

Cap and Trade legislation in Congress would cede our nation’s sovereignty to international bodies and would directly redistribute much of America’s wealth to poorer nations, crippling commerce, and significantly diminishing every American’s freedom and quality of life. Our Constitution and Bill of Rights would be further eroded.

To avert this, we must strike at the root of the problem.

At the root of the Cap and Trade legislation is the concept of global warming, and at its root is the infamous “hockey stick graph” made famous by Al Gore. But Gore didn’t create that graph. Penn State professor Michael Mann did.

Thousands of reputable scientists have questioned the relationship between carbon dioxide and global temperatures that Mann’s graph depicts, but this was not enough to cause our leaders to question the Mann’s science or Cap and Trade.

When thousands of emails from the University of East Anglia came to light, many involving Professor Mann, and many revealing concerted efforts to conceal and manipulate climate data (“Climategate”), this wasn’t enough to stop the head-long rush to sacrifice freedom, reason, and academic integrity on the alter of environmental extremism.

But the volume and content of these messages was sufficient to force Penn State to undertake an inquiry into Mann’s academic integrity. The result of this closed-door, internal inquiry by three Penn State employees was practically a white wash.

There is much more at stake here than the millions of taxpayer dollars that Mann has taken for his programs. There is more at stake here than Penn State’s reputation and the trust we place in science to better our world. Because Mann’s research is at the root of much of the concern over global warming, we must know the truth. Because his findings have led to Cap and Trade legislation, and thus endanger every American alive today, the integrity of Mann’s findings must be examined impartially, openly, and scrupulously.

The 9-12 Project of Central Pennsylvania and Penn State Young Americans for Freedom are taking action this Friday, February 12 at noon. We invite you to join Albert Einstein (talk about academic integrity!) and other concerned Americans for an hour in front of the HUB building on Penn State’s main campus in State College. We will demand academic integrity, a thorough, impartial, and open inquiry into Mann’s conduct and findings, and hear speakers.

We need your support in this important effort to shine the light of truth on the roots of global warming alarmism and Cap and Trade. Follow up by contacting your state and federal legislators and Penn State University and demand an open, impartial inquiry.

What: Rally for academic integrity, an impartial inquiry into Mann’s research, and reason
Why: Because our future and the future of America depends upon honest, open science
Where: The HUB, Pollock Street, on the PSU University Park Campus
When: Friday, February 12, noon until 1:00

Questions: Write or phone (814) 234-3912
