Zombie Hockey Stick Dies Again

Technical Rating: star star
A paper by McShane and Wyner publised in a top-ranking statistics journal reviews the zombie hockey stick graph by Michael Mann which was prominently featured in the IPCC's Third Assessment Report. The paper says "we conclude unequivocally that the evidence for a "long-handled" hockey stick (where the shaft of the hockey stick extends to the year 1000 AD) is lacking in the data."

The Climate Research Unit "has manipulated and/or withheld data with an effect on the research record. The manipulation includes (but is not limited to) arbitrary adjustment ("bodging"), cherry picking and deletion of adverse data."



Surface Temperature Record: Policy Driven Deception?

Technical Rating: star

This report shows that contamination by urbanization, changes in land use, improper siting and a reduction of reporting stations have caused a severe warming bias.



Are We Feeling Warmer Yet?

Technical Rating: star
This paper compares the raw and adjusted temperature trends in New Zealand. The official adjusted temperature trend is 0.92 C/century. The raw data temperature trend is 0.06 C/century. The adjustments increased the trend fifteen-fold. There is nothing in the station histories to warrant these adjustments.

Many adjustments were made to the original temperature data, which the CRU claims has been lost or destroyed.
