The nonthinkers awww are in love with Mann, LOL. Whom do they love more than Al Gore?

This makes you think, deniers. Why deny this?

The Mann study, which is solid science that has stood up over intensive review, is the first study with graphics that illustrate for the AVERAGE PUBLIC that there is a major shift in 'something'. As such, it has to be totally denied over and over or the denial agenda falters.

Same as documentaries that try to illustrate the consequences of fialure to rein in AGW to the public who will be the ones paying for the climate disasters. So Al Gore gets to be the messenger they want to kill.

Note that they are getting really really desperate since the science has just gottten stronger while their 'cause' has gotten weaker as business finds it cannot fight fact and starts to think about how to make profits from the needed changes.

From the Mann's essay in NYT: The urgency for action was underscored this past week by a draft United Nations report warning that another 15 years of failure to cut heat-trapping emissions would make the problem virtually impossible to solve with known technologies and thus impose enormous costs on future generations. It confirmed that the sooner we act, the less it will cost.

How will history judge us if we watch the threat unfold before our eyes, but fail to communicate the urgency of acting to avert potential disaster?

What I find encouraging is that most economic studies show the economic BENEFIT (after a short lag) of dealing with AGW and energy waste issues. The 'rust belt' industries tied to fossil fuels are slowly getting the message but it is drowned out in the public ear by the constant denial lobbying and spin masters.

"Mann’s work was initially criticized because his graph didn't show the well-known Medieval Warm Period, when temperatures were warmer than they are today, or the Little Ice Age, when they were colder than today.

But real fireworks began when two Canadian researchers, McIntyre and McKitrick, attempted to replicate Mann’s study. They found grave errors in the work, which they detailed in 2003: calculation errors, data used twice, and a computer program that generated a hockeystick out of any data fed to it—even random data.

Mann’s work has been dismissed as “phony” and “rubbish” by climate scientists around the world who subscribe to global warming. Some have asked why the UN accepted Mann’s report so uncritically. It is unsettling to learn Mann himself was in charge of the section of the report that included his work. This episode of climate science is far from the standards of independent verification."

Nothing like flogging a dead horse.

"It should be noted that some falsely reported putative errors in the Mann et al.(1998) proxy data claimed by McIntyre and McKitrick (2003) are an artifact of (a) the use by these latter authors of an incorrect version of the Mann et al.(1998) proxy indicator dataset, and (b) their misunderstanding of the methodology used by Mann et al.(1998) to calculate PC series of proxy networks over progressively longer time intervals. In the Mann et al.(1998) implementation, the PCs are computed over different time steps so that the maximum amount of data can be used in the reconstruction."

A gilt framed Hokey Schstick graph hangs over the beds of all true-blue climate catastrophe crusaders.
I'm sure fuggy is no exception.
