The Hockey Stick, Debunked

What is "the hockey stick"? It is false graph of global temperatures over the last hundred or thousand years (the latter, I think, but it doesn't matter) which is shaped like an upturned hockey-stick -- flat, flat, flat for most of it's length, then a sudden spike upward, not unlike the blade of hockey stick.

It was this graph which sparked the latest global warming alarmism. I am not exaggerating when I say this is the foundational myth of the Cult of Global Warming. This started it all, changed climatology forever.

One problem with the Hockey Stick graph: it was false, a lie from the start, and continues to be a lie. Michael Mann used fake numbers, made up numbers for it; he took out any numbers which might cause his model to show something other than a hockey stick with suddenly spiking temperatures in the late twentieth century, quite selectively and quite deliberately; and indeed the very computer algorithm he used to create this graph would almost always generate a hockey-stick like shape no matter what numbers you put into it. And even with that, he had to make up fake numbers and take out real numbers to give it that shape he needed.

Orson Scott card recounts this massive scientific fraud, blasphemes against the core Creation Myth of the Church of Tormented Gaia. It's an old article, but worth reading.

The cutesy narrative framework he uses is kind of annoying and counterproductive (you'll see what I mean) but do read the whole thing.

The foundational myth upon which global warming is based has been proven as a deliberate lie, and no one in the MSM will even bother to report this, even in the normal "balanced" way of having a skeptic note the fraud and a Global Warming Cultist rebutting him. They just do not even mention it, so calamitous is it to their cause.

Thanks to andycanuck, who I still don't really want polluting my American Internet with his Canadian snow-wop savagery, but I'm willing to let a bit slide for one of the "good ones."
