Spot the Hockey Stick! #1 in a series of many

Steve and I thought it would be a great idea to play a game of “Where’s Waldo?” Except that instead of finding a cartoon character on a page in a children’s book featuring lots of cartoon characters, we’d instead try to spot the “Mann Hockey Stick” hiding in news articles and scientific reports.

Our first examples are from the BBC, staunch promoter of the idea of climate change being caused by humans, and publisher of the most extreme results of climate models as if they were actual scientific data.

Curiously some of the articles that I distinctly remember were present on the site appear to be missing. It’s as if the Hockey Stick is causing a black hole in the BBC’s collective memory (or mine). But still, there are plenty of examples, for Hockey Stick watchers to enjoy:

Example 1

Example 2: Sir John Houghton of the IPCC pictured in front of…guess what?

Example 3: click on “Long Term High”


If there are correspondents out there with even better examples, please fill out the comment field below.

    You ought to listen to PBS On the Media and Ross Gellspan “In 1995 this Intergovermental Panel on Climate Change and this includes more than 2000 scientist from more than 100 counties in what is the largest and most rigorestly (sp) peer reviewed scientific collaboration in history said global warming is definitely happeing due to human activity, this is a fact.”
