the validity of the hockey stick graph as it represents global warming.
warming right on schedule - By PETER FRIEDMAN - Much of the current panic began when Dr. Michael Mann and his coauthors published
their now-discredited "hockey stick" temperature plot — so named for its shape that showed a long trend of steady
temperature over a thousand-year period and a sudden rise since the
early 1900s. Dr. Mann's hockey stick became the foundation for policy
leaders advocating mandatory emissions caps.
Fortunately for mankind (but unfortunately for the professional reputation
of Dr. Mann), the hockey stick was convincingly shown to be an artifact
of his flawed statistical methodology, which exaggerated recent data
and smoothed older data. Stephen McIntyre even demonstrated that Dr.
Mann's erroneous methodology generated hockey stick plots even when
random data were inserted. (02/21/08)
A dangerous movement sweeps the nation - By Phil Billington / Chronicle contributor - A dangerous movement driven by
the notion that global warming is manmade is steamrolling the nation.
Though climatologists have known about global warming for decades,
the hoax that it was manmade was born when geoscientist Michael Mann
published the famous "Hockey Stick" plot in 1998, claiming that the earth, after remaining cool for centuries during
the medieval era, suddenly began to heat up about 100 years ago --
just at the time that the burning of coal and oil led to an increase
in atmospheric levels of carbon dioxide.
But alas, two Canadian scientists, McIntyre and McKitrick, exposed
Mann's poor math; the Hockey Stick is a fraud. Bad science, however,
did not discourage the left-wing hacks at the U.N.'s Intergovernmental
Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) from publishing a fraudulent report
using Mann's thesis. IPCC claimed 2500 scientists were in support,
which the media spun to say, "The
majority of world's top scientists agree that global climate change
is due to human activity." But scientists rebelled. (IPCC revised its Web site to say "2500 expert reviewers," and further admitted it does not carry out climate research but merely bases
its assessment on peer review of published technical literature.) (02/04/08)
the truth in global warming reports - The IPCC is a government organization (as are many of the sources Mr. Teeple
uses), which ignores completely, the input and research from many
of the scientists on the panel who believe otherwise from what they
are told to believe. Many of these scientists end up leaving the
panel as a result of their research and their voices not being heard
or printed. (04/21/07)
for hockey stick graph - The IPCC used a version of the diagram in its last assessment. The Earth was
hotter in the late 20th Century than it had been in the last 400
or possibly 1,000 years, a report requested by the US Congress concludes.

Hockey Stick has Collapsed into a Singularity and then Exploded into a Cloud of Sub-atomic Particles Expanding
at Light Speed. Then it burned down, fell over, then sank into the
swamp. It's an ex-hockey stick. By Tim Lambert. A slightly humerous
perspective on the hockey stick. (01/28/05)
the Hockey Stick Broken? - By Dr. Willie Soon, Co-Authored by David R. Legates. (10/27/04)
legacy of hockey stick - The IPCC's version showed temperature variation over 1,000 years. There are
few more provocative symbols in the debate over global warming than
the "hockey stick". BBC News (08/16/04)
