Continuing the petty practice of refusing to cite HS critics, Johann h. Jungclaus, writing in Nature Geoscience, “Lessons from the past millennium”, discusses the “debate about the ‘hockey-stick’ curve” without citing the critical MM articles:
Knowledge of past climate evolution is essential for understanding natural climate variability. The debate about the ‘hockey-stick’ curve — a reconstruction of Northern Hemisphere temperatures over the past millennium[1 - MBH]— revolved around the extent to which recent climate warming is unprecedented in a longer-term context. The controversy calmed down after several reassessments [2 - IPCC AR4, 3 - NAS Panel] that confirmed the unique magnitude of warming since the late twentieth century, but the amplitude of multi-centennial temperature changes over the past millennium is still not well understood.
As CA readers realize, all that 2 and 3 confirmed is that Graybill bristlecone chronologies have a unique uptick in the 20th century, but that is of no interest to the “Community”.
