Remember the “Hockey Stick?”

If you have followed the “global warming” debate you are familiar with “the hockey stick.” The “hockey stick,” as you will recall, was the name given to a graph published by Penn State climate scientist, Michael Mann. If one looks below at the top graph you can see the shaded “hockey stick” of rising temperatures spelling DOOM TO ALL MANKIND!

The Mann graph is being adjudicated. Mann filed a libel suit in the British Columbia Supreme Court, Vancouver against Dr. Tim Ball (also a climate scientist) who claimed that Mann’s graph was hokum! According to Ball, Mann cherry-picked data which makes the Medieval Warm Period (MWP) disappear and shows a pronounced upward ‘tick’ in the late 20th century (the blade of his so-called “hockey stick”). Ball used widely available public data showing that the MWP was hotter than today (compare the top and bottom graphs above) and that current temperatures are well within natural variation.

Mann decided to sue Ball in court. The Judge ordered Mann to produce his data for open court examination. Guess what? Mann refused! The Judge ordered that Mann “produce all documents including computer codes.” Mann has not met the Judge’s order.

The Judge will almost certainly charge Mann with contempt of court. But, let’s face it. There is only one reason for Mann’s refusal to turn over his data and you do not need me to tell you why that is.

And thanks to Bay Area Patriots for sending this to me.

    I’d have waited until the Judge takes action against Mann. The assumption he will be slammed is just one person’s opinion (although we would be delighted if it happens) and that person may not be familiar with Canadian law.

      True. It would be better if the Judge had already held him in contempt. However, the fact remains that the Judge order him to produce the data and he has not done so. Why not???
