The "hockey stick" graph of world temperatures is the only so much influential icon within the global-warming debate, promoted via the UN's transnational weather forms, featured in Al Gore's Oscar-winning motion picture, utilized by governments world wide to promote the Kyoto Accord to their electorate, and proven to impressionable schoolchildren from kindergarten to graduation.
And but what it purports to "prove" is disputed and denied by way of a number of the world's most outstanding scientists. during this riveting ebook, Mark Steyn has compiled the recommendations of the world's scientists, of their personal phrases, on hockey-stick writer Michael E Mann, his stick and their harm to technological know-how. From Canada to Finland, Scotland to China, Belgium to New Zealand, from venerable Nobel Laureates to full of life younger researchers on both sides of the talk study the hockey inventory and the broader weather wars it helped release.
