The Cone Project: Proping up the thoroughly discredited "hockey stick" global warming charade

Cone writes:

"For the past 10 years, climate-change skeptics have been calling the hockey stick bogus. Now the scientists who studied the climate record and produced the original hockey-stick graph have done a new study using more data from more sources — and they got the same pattern."

With the same phony ginned up computer modeling that was exposed as fraudulent years ago?

Yeah, sure.

This piece forever puts Mann, et al, and the bogus "hockey stick" fabrication to rest forever, whether the True Believers like it or not.


"The environmental extremists, who have already killed 50 million children through malaria by their now-canceled ban on the use of DDT, the only effective agent against the anopheles mosquito that spreads the infective parasite, are already eagerly killing millions more through their latest scientifically-baseless scare – the 'global warming' panic pandemic. Food riots are occurring throughout the world among the poorest of the poor in many countries: but the desperation, starvation, disease, and death that accompany the sudden famines that the biofuel-driven doubling of world food prices has engendered are scarcely reported by our news media.

In Haiti, they are eating mud pies made of earth, water, a tiny knob of butter, and a pinch of salt; or they sell the mud pies to less fortunate neighbours at 3 US cents each. Has any Western news medium reported this, or the hundreds of other agonizing stories of famine and starvation all round the world? No. Instead, every icicle that falls in Greenland is paraded as an omen of imminent doom: and, as for the crooked pseudo-scientists who invented the hockey stick, supported it, and continue to parade it in the mendacious documents of the
IPCC, no journalist would dare to ask any of them the questions that would expose their self-seeking corruption for what it is.

These evil pseudo-scientists, through the falsity of their statistical manipulations, have already killed far more people through starvation than 'global warming' will ever kill. They should now be indicted and should stand trial alongside Radovan Karadzic for nothing less than high crimes against humanity: for, in their callous disregard for the fatal consequences of their corrupt falsification of science, they are no less guilty of genocide than he."

Cone's post is yet another excellent example of pretentious blogging in support of an ugly and dangerous political, social, and economic agenda without actually taking the time to understand the implications of the disastrous portent .

But does he care?

No, he does not. It simply does not suit his warped sensibilities.

In other words, it's just business as usual for our famed empty suit blogger boy extraordnaire.


  1. Cone and the usual suspects cling to their global warming religion and their cardboard fans when the facts show totally different:

    Climate change this week: Global cooling

    According to the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), the first half of 2008 has been the coolest in five years. The WMO further concludes that the so-called “global warming” that may have occurred over the past 30 years is no longer the trend. Geologist Don Easterbrook, a professor emeritus at Western Washington University, predicts that temperatures will cool between 2065 and 2100 by less than one degree. Easterbrook is using the temperatures of the years since 2002 to establish a climate pattern. “The argument that this is too short a time period to be meaningful would be valid were it not for the fact that this cooling exactly fits the pattern of timing of warm/cool cycles over the past 400 years,” Easterbrook wrote. Another geologist, Robert Giegengack of the University of Pennsylvania, notes, “For most of Earth’s history, the globe has been warmer than it has been for the last 200 years. It has rarely been cooler.”

    Meanwhile, the Old Farmer’s Almanac predicts that the coming winter will be “catastrophic” due to cold weather. In fact, two-thirds of the country should look for colder-than-average temperatures this winter. Not to mention higher energy bills.

    So much for the global warming fiasco and sham . Even their high priest Al is no longer in the spot light and their messiah has hardly mentioned it in his "empty speeches" of late. I am sure however that Cone will continue to cling to his "religion" as the sham crumbles around him. That is what the leftist do best even when they know they are and have been totally wrong.

  2. At the Cone thread, Chief Local High Priest of the "Scientific Consensus on anthropogenic Global Warming" Dave Dobson says

    " The evidence for global warming shows a clear trend of a century or more, full of much smaller wiggles back and forth. The fact that there may have been a cooler side to one of those wiggles in the last year or two has no bearing on the longer trend, and people who would try to make such arguments reveal either their own agenda or their weak understanding of statistics rather than any shocking truth."

    This is pure, unadulterated bullshit, with no empirical evidence to back it up.

    If he actually knows better, and is not just a simple minded functionary with some sort of an academic pedigree, he is committing academic and intellectual fraud.

    It's time to reveal these people for who and what they actually are.

  3. UH Duh and did the great one happen to read the word from the WMO? Oh, I forgot, if it doesn't come from Pope Al it ain't true.
