This is Michael Mann’s 1999 Hockey stick graph fraud. A fraudulent piece of junk science using false data, which fueled the Catastrophic Anthropologic Global Warming (CAGW) juggernaut. !!
(It was used in the IPCC’s `Third Assessment Report’ 2000 but was quietly dropped in subsequent reports)
Clear explanation – http://www.john-daly.com/hockey/hockey.htm
This annotated chart shows some of ‘Mikes tricks’
Note the absence of the Medieval Warm Period (AD 950 to 1250) & the distorted little Ice Age !!
The full sorry story here –
Mark Steyn’s “Disgraceful Mann” book should be required reading. It exposes the fraud simply & clearly.

Michael Man & The Hockey Stick
There was a crooked Mann
Who played a crooked trick
And had a crooked plan
To make a crooked stick
By using crooked math
That favored crooked lines
Lysenko’s crooked path
Led through the crooked pines
And all his crooked friends
Applaud what crooked seems
But all that crooked ends
Derives from crooked means

Michael Mann has also falsely claimed he is a Nobel laureate **. https://johnosullivan.wordpress.com/2012/10/28/michael-mann-retracts-false-nobel-prize-claims-in-humiliating-climbdown/
But, The Nobel Committee doesn’t agree with him !! https://pjmedia.com/blog/michael-mann-claiming-a-nobel-prize-he-didnt-receive
Geir Lundestad, Director, Professor, of The Norwegian Nobel Institute states:
- Michael Mann has never been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
- He did not receive any personal certificate.
He has taken the diploma awarded in 2007 to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (and to Al Gore) and made his own text underneath this authentic-looking diploma.
- The text underneath the diploma is entirely his own. We issued only the diploma to the IPCC as such.
No individuals on the IPCC side received anything in 2007.
So not only was Mann’s data false, he was NOT awarded the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize, & the “text underneath the diploma is entirely his own.” (forgery ? )
So what else is false in the legal suits over the highly publicized hockey-stick graph & defamation?
Michael Mann is currently fighting a number of lawsuits http://principia-scientific.org/michael-mann-lawyer-exposed-in-climate-court-case.html/
