    Yeah, right I suppose he runs the "realclimate.org" website because he wasn't looking for a hockey stick.

    Mann is a con artist. He should be in jail for committing fraud.

    You mean it doesn't use carbon based fuels to heat the steel?

    Yes, Charles, all the scientists in the world are on the take. It is only they paid agents of the Koch brothers and others in the energy business that are honest.

    Need any more tinfoil for your hats?

    LOL. No, didn't chase this one away to China. In fact, it is the centerpiece of our Russian owners vertically integrated metals corperation.

    Even more irony, we have upgraded our environmental facilities since they purchased the mill. And our mill often produces large lots of armor plate for Isreal.

    Really, Pattycake, it is unfortunate that you are so ignorant. Otherwise you might know that over a dozen studies, using data and statistal methods differant from that used by Mann have all confirmed his 'Hockey Stick'.

    The Hockey Stick is Accurate « Oxford Kevin

    The paper “Robustness of the Mann, Bradley, Hughes reconstruction of Northern Hemisphere surface temperatures: Examination of criticisms based on the nature and processing of proxy climate evidence” by Wahl and Ammann assesses the results of the MBH98 by using principal component analysis in the appropriate way. Wahl and Ammann also looked at the impact of removing the Bristlecone and Foxtail Pine proxy data which McIntyre and McKitrick had criticized the use of in both MBH98 and MBH99. They published the results of their work and you can see the impact that this had on the shape of the Hockey Stick in the graph below.

    So McIntyre and McKitrick have also confirmed the 'Hockey Stick' graph.

    Too bad that people like you are so stupid and gullible, Pattycake.

    What is hysterical is that all the nutter alarmists are anti-free market......which is the only way that REAL alternative energies can develop ( instead of this 19th century BS with solar and wind = laughable). Every single one of them is a k00k statist.:gay:

    Oh the irony!!!:2up:


    All these internet heros keep talking about are temperatures, carbon dioxide and glaciers........in the nether-regions of the internet. Everywhere else? Nobody gives a rats ass. ( as I have astutely pointed out earlier in this thread ). The only responses you get from the alarmist cheesedicks is just more science threads!!!


    Just like the radical 99% assholes..........the environmental nutty-asses are.............

    ExxonMobil Report: Smoke Mirrors & Hot Air (2007)

    UCS report finds that the oil company spent nearly $16 million to fund skeptic groups, create confusion

    Download: ExxonMobil’s Tobacco-like Disinformation Campaign on Global Warming Science

    A report from the Union of Concerned Scientists offers the most comprehensive documentation to date of how ExxonMobil has adopted the tobacco industry's disinformation tactics, as well as some of the same organizations and personnel, to cloud the scientific understanding of climate change and delay action on the issue.

    According to the report, ExxonMobil has funneled nearly $16 million between 1998 and 2005 to a network of 43 advocacy organizations that seek to confuse the public on global warming science.

    Smoke, Mirrors & Hot Air: How ExxonMobil Uses Big Tobacco's Tactics to "Manufacture Uncertainty" on Climate Change details how the oil company, like the tobacco industry in previous decades, has

    * raised doubts about even the most indisputable scientific evidence
    * funded an array of front organizations to create the appearance of a broad platform for a tight-knit group of vocal climate change contrarians who misrepresent peer-reviewed scientific findings
    * attempted to portray its opposition to action as a positive quest for "sound science" rather than business self-interest
    * used its access to the Bush administration to block federal policies and shape government communications on global warming
