  • Climate change "hockey stick" lawsuit thrown out in Canada

    I just ran across the following article this morning and figured there would be quite a few people interested in this.

    The Penn State professor who created the "hockey stick" graph "proving" global warming has had his lawsuit against a scientist who said he could prove the graph was academic fraud thrown out of court because he repeatedly refused to comply with court orders compelling him to produce his work. After two years of this behavior on his part the judge not only threw the case out of court but compelled him to pay all court costs, which in Canada, include all attorneys fees for both sides.

    Michael Mann is a Penn State professor who is famous for having generated the “hockey stick” graph that was published as part of a 2001 report of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The data used in the graph is largely based upon measuring tree-ring thicknesses in bristle cone pine trees, and then concatenating actual temperature measurements onto the historical data that he inferred from the tree rings. Mann’s graph wiped out a well established period of warmer weather called the “medieval warm period,” and shows drastic warming in recent years, presumably due to carbon dioxide that is a by-product of the burning of fossil fuels:










    The science behind the graph has been hotly contested for decades now, with many scientists saying that Mann was playing games with the data. Two Canadians, Steven McIntyre and Ross McKitrick, examined Mann’s study in 2003 and stated that Mann’s computer model would generate a hockey stick regardless what data were fed into it. They also stated that the small sample of Bristlecone Pines in the Western U.S. that Mann had used was not representative (a later study by an English university used a single Siberian tree).

    The judge stopped the lawsuit on the grounds that 35 years of age was arbitrary. However...

    Aside from the age issue, Morrison did accept ENJEU’s core claims against the government as justiciable.

    “The important issues have been decided in our favor: the judge recognizes that the impact of climate change on human rights is a justiciable issue and that the actions of the government in this area are subject to the Canadian Charters and Quebec rights and freedoms,” Johnston said.

        As usual, you get right to the heart of Barby's obfuscations.
