About that hockey stick

So, this hockey stick thing from god knows how many years ago that nobody apart from friends of the authors has been able to reproduce. 

This is false. It has been false for years. This is why I get pissed off when I’m talking to deniers.

This is why I CALL them deniers – they keep repeating the same claims over and over again no matter what happens. It’s dismissing of evidence.

It’s the parable of the duck all over again.

If you see someone making this claim, or talking about “the hockey stick” calling it broken, or debunked, or whatever – they are either lying or they have been lied to. Either way, you have my full permission to copy and paste this post. If I find more articles, I’ll add them in and re-post. 

Enough already.
