The Hockey-Stick Graph Is Now One Of The Most Trusted And Widely Recognized Graphs In All Of Science
You know that moment when you read something, then can’t actually believe what you have read, do a double take and the words still haven’t changed? That!
The cause of such a reaction none other than the central source for Green fairy tales, the UK Guardian where in an article today, a minor scientist who someone might have called a nasty name once upon time is accusing anyone who disagrees with the findings of the so called climate scientists, of launching personal attacks on people like Ben Santer and Michael E Mann, who is the real reason for this story.
Mikey’s a hero don’t cha know:
In the interest of reader safety please be sitting down, do not under any circumstances hold a hot drink or drink a hot drink while reading this extract:
Take, for instance, Dr. Ben Santer and the attacks leveled against him in The Wall Street Journal. Or how about the numerous attacks against Dr. Michael Mann? He has been viciously attacked on blogs and in far right-wing media as his work on paleoclimate has been held up as the face of climate change.
But Dr. Mann has not only been attacked on blogs, television, and in print; he has been attacked in court. For instance, Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli tried to force Dr. Mann to release private emails and other documents from his research work at the University of Virginia. He demanded correspondence between Dr. Mann and a number of other scientists in a style that echoed back to McCarthyism.
The brave new Green world where to question junk science based on erroneous computer models with observed empirical evidence is to launch a McCarthy style attack, because the politically motivated scientific consensus trumps fact, every time. Of course, Big Green has never started witch hunts and labelled Climate Realists as deniers.
For Dr. Mann, the outcome is that he has wasted time and money fighting against these attacks. On the other hand, his science, which is perhaps the most scrutinized in the world’s history, has emerged victorious. The “hockey-stick graph” is now one of the most trusted and widely recognized graphs in all of science. To his colleagues, Dr. Mann is a hero.
Assuming you have recovered your composure from reading about the hockey stick, the Dr Mann is a hero bit really does generate a classic ROFL moment.
People have different standards for heroes, depending upon their point of view,value set and moral compass, but you do have to wonder about people who would accord Michael E Mann the status of hero.
The Hockey Stick is probably the most widely disproved and discredited graph in the entire history of science, and probably before that as well.
Anyone looking at the graph, or should it be graphic? Can see that the Middle Age Warming period and the Little Ice Age have been “ironed out” so that the global mean temperature can be shown to be flat, until the 20th Century rise which of course in Green world, is conclusive proof of Anthropogenic Global Warming.
The real measure of Michael E Mann, the man can be determined by his self awarding of a Nobel Peace prize, something that Mann claimed, but subsequently removed from his bio on the Real Science web site after the story broke:
When contacted about Mann winning the Nobel Prize, the Nobel Institute had this to say:
1) Michael Mann has never been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
2) He did not receive any personal certificate. He has taken the diploma awarded in 2007 to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (and to Al Gore) and made his own text underneath this authentic-looking diploma.
3) The text underneath the diploma is entirely his own. We issued only the diploma to the IPCC as such. No individuals on the IPCC side received anything in 2007.
So someone who pretends to be a Nobel Laureate and forges the diploma with his own self aggrandizing text is a hero?
