pithy summary of a great article over on Climateaudit:
"if the data don't fit, just make up some shit"The much touted hockey stick is no longer mostly dead,
it's all dead.
All of the sudden, it isn’t the “hottest period in 2000 years” anymore.
The next graphic compares the RCS chronologies from the two slightly different data sets: red – the RCS chronology calculated from the CRU archive (with the 12 picked cores); black – the RCS chronology calculated using the Schweingruber Yamal sample of living trees instead of the 12 picked trees used in the CRU archive. The difference is breathtaking.
