Are Penn State lectures on “climate ethics” an oxymoron?

As you all may recall, it is Penn State that is hiding Michael “Hockey Stick” Mann e-mails, data, and research logs from FOIA requests. This hockey stick research was conducted with public grant money and is in the public interest. So, I was dumbstruck when I read about about Penn State giving climate ethics lectures at the UN COP Meeting in Durban South Africa at WUWT.
An Ethical Critique of the Climate Science Disinformation Campaign
Dear Attendees of COP-17:
On Tuesday, November 29th, in a seminar organized by Penn State University and the University of Washington on the ethical dimensions of climate change join us to look at two issues.
One, an ethical analysis of the climate change disinformation campaign. We will examine whether this is a new kind of crime against humanity?
Second, we will look at the piratical significance for negotiations in Durban if climate change is understood to create human rights violations.

You see, if your are not on the warmer’s team’s message that the world is burning up from human CO2 emissions you are guilty of human right violations. And, to mention that the science is not proven and there could be other causes for the warming, warming that is not happening by the way, you are participating in a disinformation campaign. So, this is how science is done at Penn State. What ever you do not send your kids or grandkids to Penn State, they have unresolved ethics issues.
Oh, by the way, big oil is 96 months behind in sending me my first check. It will arrive some day I am sure as Professor Brown keeps telling me I am on the payroll.
