The Hockey Stick is Dead!!!!

In my opinion it took far too long for this to be acknowledged as junk science but finally the main graph that the global warming alarmists have been using to prove their point has been abolished.

Thanks to Fred (you can't rely on mainstream media for this type of news) I found out fairly quickly.

Basically the graph that supposedly correlated CO2 with the "warming temperatures" was taken off of Wikipedia after being posted by some random closet no-name environmentalist from Switzerland.

Just to refresh your memory, this is the graph that Al Gore basically used to prove his point in his money grab movie "An Inconvenient Truth".
You can read a good summary of the history and making of this graph here.

Do you think the tide is finally turning in this Global Warming Farce? And before you jump on me for being all anti-environment etc. I just want to state that I am against the wasteful western society that we live in but trying to prove man-made climate change is the wrong way to go about fixing that. It is wrong on so many levels.

Funny. I wrote an essay in grade 12 that mentioned the debunking of that graph.
Takes people a while to catch on.

it is not the fact that the graph is wrong.......all the skeptics knew that but no one could prove it.

Until someone decided to use the 'Freedom of Information Act' to gain access to the data behind the graph. It was all about corrolation with Tree rings and apparently the guy took a specific sample of tree rings to prove his point.

You gotta read some of the background stuff on this. Just check Fred's blog.
