  • 15. Introduction.
  • 16. When this plot was first produced it is fair to say, it totally rewrote the past climate books / understanding of the time. Literally it replaced them. In the following series of slides I'll try to illustrate how the "Hockey stick" was made. You can then judge for yourselves whether it stands up to closer scrutiny or not.
  • 17. Areas of this plot we'll look at.

  • 24. There are a few other areas we'll cover as well.. This diagram however is a bit "overcrowded" with concerns for the time being...
  • 25. Timescale Deliberately misinterpretted data set Wieghting Temp. scale no M.W.P. no L.I.A.
  • 26. First, we should look "back" to the previous best understanding of past climate. Paleoclimatology as it is called. Simply put it is merely our best guess / knowledge of what the climate was. Pre 1990, our understanding of paleoclimatology is probably well illustrated by the following examples.
  • 27. The "old" Consensus.
  • 28. a bit of background... Pre 1990 Most past temperature reconstructions looked something like
  • 29. Untill about 1990, the old school "consensus" (wiggly-ness) reconstructions of the last 1,000 years of global temperatures were similar to that shown in this chart from the 1990 IPCC report. (Probably roughly drawn from Lamb 1965)
  • 30. Some "wiggly-ness" temperature plots from the 1990 IPCC report... Original caption: Figure 2: Temperature variations over the last million years. Courtesy of the British Antarctic Survey Please note the use of the terms, and, Although not on these figures, (or indicated) the term (Hint - growth of civilization) was also used... "Medieval Warm Period" "Little Ice Age" "Holocene Maximum"                                                           
  • 31. Let us look at the 3 timescales covered by this diagram. The following "blow ups" effectively show the previous "consensus" view of what past climate was thought to be.                                                           
  • 32. Let us look at the 3 timescales covered by this diagram. The following "blow ups" effectively show the previous "consensus" view of what past climate was thought to be.

  • 119. IPCC 3rd Report (aka the new "consensus") Temperature reconstructions / plots. The beginning of the modern "flat earth society" (I wish that joke was funny... It would be if it were not so damned true.)                                                                              
  • 120. This opened a can of worms..
  • 121. IPCC 1990 Figure 7c. Please note, not accreditied to anyone in IPCC report BUT, Steve McIntyre of climateaudit.org found the following...
  • 122. Figure 2. Black - Lamb 1965 CET (with update); red - digitized IPCC 1990 Figure 1c. Maybe the IPCC hoped no one would defend it.. Nobody dared. Steve McIntyre investigated though. " I recently re-read Lamb 1965. It's Table 2 provided a table of Central England temperature estimates in 50 year intervals."
  • 123. In the "old school" past climate reconstructions, "wiggly-ness" abounded vitually everywhere.
  • 124. In the "old school" past climate reconstructions, "wiggly-ness" abounded vitually everywhere. In the new versions, everything appeared very flat. Untill very recently of course.
  • 125. In the "old school" past climate reconstructions, "wiggly-ness" abounded vitually everywhere. In the new versions, everything appeared very flat. Untill very recently of course.
  • 126. In the "old school" past climate reconstructions, "wiggly-ness" abounded vitually everywhere. In the new versions, everything appeared very flat. Untill very recently of course. The Flat Earth society
  • 127. In the "old school" past climate reconstructions, "wiggly-ness" abounded vitually everywhere. In the new versions, everything appeared very flat. Untill very recently of course. Seems appropriate. The Flat Earth society
  • 128. Can natural variation still be found..
  • 129. Can past (or present)climatic be found elsewhere, other than "old school" reconstructions. "Wiggly-ness"
  • 130. Can past (or present)climatic be found elsewhere, other than "old school" reconstructions. "Wiggly-ness" YES, for example the sun..
  • 131. Over the last 1,000 years, we see that (again using a reversed scale of C14 as a proxy) solar activity is highly correlated with long term temperature trends.
  • 132. Look at the following reconstruction data by Judith Lean of the Naval Research Library and charted from her data at NOAA by Junkscience.com shows that interestingly, the sun's output does appear to be higher today than they have been in many, perhaps hundreds of years . Surely not "wiggly-ness" in the sun's output..
  • 133. Look at the following reconstruction data by Judith Lean of the Naval Research Library and charted from her data at NOAA by Junkscience.com shows that interestingly, the sun's output does appear to be higher today than they have been in many, perhaps hundreds of years . Surely not "wiggly-ness" in the sun's output.. This is raising considerable concern at present, since the above was written the number of sun spots has considerably reduced.
  • 134. An updated plot would show (and now do) a recent dramatic reduction. Solar Cycle 23 STILL has not finished If it continues.. (Solar cycle 23 was supposed to end in October 2007, typed May 2008)
  • 135. An updated plot would show (and now do) a recent dramatic reduction. Solar Cycle 23 STILL has not finished If it continues.. The sun's output is not "flat" (obviously) and we WILL get colder. How much colder, for how long, nobody knows. How much human suffering, again nobody knows. (Solar cycle 23 was supposed to end in October 2007, typed June 2008)
  • 136. An updated plot would show (and now do) a recent dramatic reduction. Solar Cycle 23 STILL has not finished If it continues.. The sun's output is not "flat" (obviously) and we WILL get colder. How much colder, for how long, nobody knows. How much human suffering, again nobody knows. BUT, it is obvious, preparing for warming alone WILL kill millions of the poor, the world over. (Solar cycle 23 was supposed to end in October 2007, typed June 2008)
  • 137. I wish we would prepare (for cooling - just in case...) As surely as it was an iceburg that sank the Titanic, WE ARE LOOKING THE WRONG WAY.
  • 138. I wish we would prepare (for cooling - just in case...) As surely as it was an iceburg that sank the Titanic, WE ARE LOOKING THE WRONG WAY. The present CO2 "obsession" is blinding us.
  • 139. The new "Consensus" How it was "proved".
  • 140. THE proof of AGW One of THE leading proponents of AGW, and realclimate.org founder member .nonsense Micheal Mann of the University of Massachusetts electrified the climate science world, and the political world as a whole, with his revised temp. reconstruction, shown here, (next slide) it's called The Hockey Stick.
  • 141. THE proof of AGW
  • 142. THE proof of AGW
  • 143. THE proof of AGW 1950 a "bad" year...
  • 144. THE proof of AGW YEAH RIGHT MANN...
  • 145. THE proof of AGW WHY ?
  • 146. THE proof of AGW
  • 147. So why was the Hockey Stick so influential ? - it appeared to provide a much more sophisticated statistical analysis than earlier efforts. It claimed to have "statistical skill", reporting highly significant verification RE and r2 statistics. It used - a much larger data set than had been considered in prior studies. Stephen McIntyre quote/s Ohio presentation, May 2008.
  • 148. "Proofs" of the H.S. 1 - Wieghting
  • 149. As an example of the "types" of statistical "methods" Mann et al employed, in making the Hockey Stick, I'll try to look at "weighting" simply.
  • 150. An example of the effect of weighting. Imagine two data points, A = 10 and B = 2. The mean of these two data points is, 10 + 2 = 12 divided by 2 = 6 The mean of A and B is 6 If we decide we want to weight one of the data points by 390, for example (like Mann did..), how does this effect the mean of this example. (10x390) 3900 = (2x1) 2 = 3902 3902 divided by (390 = 1) 391 = 9.795 The (weighted) mean of A and B is 9.795
  • 151. An example of the effect of weighting. Imagine two data points, A = 10 and B = 2. The mean of these two data points is, 10 + 2 = 12 divided by 2 = 6 The mean of A and B is 6 If we decide we want to weight one of the data points by 390, for example (like Mann did..), how does this effect the mean of this example. (10x390) 3900 = (2x1) 2 = 3902 3902 divided by (390 = 1) 391 = 9.795 The (weighted) mean of A and B is 9.795 Weighting can have a significant effect on what the data shows. Where used weighting should be realistically justified. If you like non-existent wild goose chases, try finding an explanation of Mann's justification of the weightings he used...
  • 152. Data set A Data set B An example of the effect of weighting. Here is a plot showing two (imaginary) data sets, A (blue line) and B (green line),
  • 153. Data set A Data set B Mean of A & B An example of the effect of weighting. Here is a plot showing two (imaginary) data sets, A (blue line) and B (green line), and, a black line for the mean of the two data sets.
  • 154. An example of the effect of weighting. Here is a plot showing two (imaginary) data sets, A (blue line) and B (green line), and, a black line for the mean of the two data sets. The red (dashed) line is a weighted mean. Can you guess which data set I weighted by 390.....
  • 155. Mean of A & B 390 weighted Mean of A & B An example of the effect of weighting. Here is a plot showing two (imaginary) data sets, A (blue line) and B (green line), and, a black line for the mean of the two data sets. The red (dashed) line is a weighted mean.

  • 157. Figure5: Two tree ring chronologies from the MBH98 data set. Top: Sheep Mountain, CA, USA. Bottom: Mayberry Slough, AR, USA. Both series are the same length, but due to the 20th Century trend in the top panel, Mann's algorithm gives it the weight of the bottom series in the PC1. 390 times

  • 159. Steve McIntyre quote regarding weighting, " This shows about as vividly as one could imagine that the hockey stick made out of bristlecone pine. " IS
  • 160. "Proofs" of the H.S. 2 - Algorithm and resulting data omissions
  • 161. Some other examples of the "methods" or "statistical techniques" Mann et al used.
  • 162. Figure 4 . Reproduction of a chart in MM05a. Histog ram of ‘Hockey Stick’ Indexes of PC1s from red noise under conventional PC algorithm and under Mann PC algorithm. use a “dodgy” algorithm.. What if you..
  • 163. It appears from the previous diagram that the algorithm Mann used would split a data set up into three bands (effectively) high, medium, and low. The high and low "sets" would give a similar shaped plot to the original dataset, but the temperature shown would be higher or lower than the complete dataset. The unused portions of the datasets were then (mostly) put into the censored files.
  • 164. Figure 9. Removal of the bristlecone pines from the AD1400 network changes the results from the red line to the pink line, thereby removing the characteristic “hockey stick” shape and leaving behind mere noise.

  • 165. The effect of an algorithm graphically depicted (6), the hockey stick and the corrected temperature curve (green line) by McIntyre between 1400 and 1980 (The green curve is not intended to indicate the true temperature, but to show a correct use of the data)

  • 173. “it is interesting to examine the first 5 PC series in the CENSORED file at Mann's FTP site." These PC series have been calculated from the 50 non-bristlecone pine series and obviously there is no 20th Century hockey stick shaped series among them. These PC series have presumably been calculated with Mann's flawed method, but even this method could not mine a hockey stick shape without the bristlecones.
  • 174. http://www.climateaudit.org/?p=2153#more-2153 “censored” data… Whatever next. "Restricted" data....
  • 175. http://www.climateaudit.org/?p=2153#more-2153 Yes "R" rated tree ring data... Many climate audit readers will remember Mann's "CENSORED" directory, in which Mann calculated principal components on a network that excluded bristlecone pines (which needless to say didn't have a HS shape..) Now Juckes et al introduce us to a new type of climate data: "restricted" data. The Team has introduced a novel classification system - PG and R. Juckes et al say that the Indigirka series is R - rated and so it can't be used in their reconstruction.
  • 176. http://www.climateaudit.org/?p=2153#more-2153 Here are their exact words from the Euro Hockey Team for excluding the Indigirka series: " The Indigirka series used by MSH2005 is not used here because IT IS NOT AVALIABLE FOR UNRESTRICTED USE. "

  • 189. The Eurasian long-term tree-ring chronologies have revealed the global climate fluctuations (Medieval Warm Period, Little Ice Age, current warming.) As last as a current temperature changes are characterized the spatial heterogeneity - different value of temperature fluctuation in different subarctic sectors. Current warming started at the beginnig of the 19th Century and presently does not exceed the amplitude of the medieval warming. The tree ring chronologies do not indicate unusually abrupt temp. rise during the last century, which could be reliably associated with greenhouse gas increasing in the atmosphere of our planet. The current period is characterised by heterogeneous warming effects in the subarctic regions of Eurasia. Conclusions (of this study)

  • 201.
    • There are reasons to believe that tree ring data may not capture long-term climate changes (100+ years) because tree size, root/shoot ratio, genetic adaptation to climate, and forest density can all shift in response to prolonged climate changes, among other reasons (Broecker, 2001; Falcon-Lang, 2005; Loehle, 2004; Moberg et al., 2005).
    • Data in each series were smoothed with a 30-year running mean. All data were then converted to anomalies by subtracting the mean of each series from that series. The overall mean series was then computed by simple averaging.
    • Data were obtained for long series that had been previously calibrated and converted to temperature. No tree ring data were used. After an extensive search, all data were used that had at least 20 dates over the 2000-year period.
    • None of these types of data have the temperature calibration problems inherent in tree rings. Whatever temperature calibration issues exist with these proxies are not common across the different proxies.

  • 210. Let us make a Hockey stick plot from the Greenland ice core data to illustrate
  • 211. How to make a hockey stick… There are many, many ways to get a graph or plot to &quot;show what you want&quot;. Here, we will use just 5 of the &quot;techniques&quot; Mann et al used. Let us employ them one at a time, with the Greenland ice core data set.
  • 212. 1 - Data set choice.
  • 213. Data set choice. I have only used one simple data set, the Greenland ice core data records that go back 49,981 years before present (BP), &quot;present&quot; being 1997. This record consists of, temperature in degrees celsius for central Greenland for a given time, expressed as years BP. Simply a two number entry for each data point. Choosing a data set is a difficult task, it should be, &quot;relevant&quot; yet &quot;impartial&quot; accurate and unbiased. A complex minefield in short, open to question, but science should always question.
  • 214. The complete Greenland ice core data set plotted “as is”
  • 215. 2 - Time scale choice.
  • 216. Timescale. This can have great influence on the choice of data set. Too short a data set has obvious problems, how do you study what is not recorded. Too long a set of data is not an issue, it is just where do you cut the data off. This sounds &quot;inoffensive&quot; enough, cutting off a data set, but can have dramatic effects. You can &quot;cut out&quot; what you do not want. (Intensionally or not.) Let us see if we can effect what is “shown” by timescale choice.
  • 217. An “inoffensive” timescale cut off effect simile. Imagine you find a long lost favourite family recipe for Sheperd's pie. The recipe is not complete though, part of the page/s is missing. You do not know how much of the page, or pages, is missing, but you can read. “Now put the pie under the grill until the cheese topping is browned, maybe even a little charred in places.&quot; Would you know enough to make the family it’s favourite meal ? Would you know the oven setting, or how long to cook the dish, or what ingredients to use, the proportions or weights of the ingredients. (and as for those &quot;secret&quot; ingredients that make all the difference...) No, obviously.
  • 218. The complete Greenland ice core data set plotted “as is”
  • 219. 49,981 years BP is obviously too long a time scale for the purpose here. We will reduce it to a more reasonable 10,500 years BP. First though, a note about data points.
  • 220. The “as is” plot, please note the time scale along the bottom. It is skewed. This is because the number of data points varies for different time periods (I do not know why). Below is a plot of the number of measurements per 1,000 years BP.
  • 221. All data points.

  • 266. Temperature Scaling Always useful to emphasize or hide want you want or do not want to &quot;show&quot; in a plot or graph. If, for instance you have picked or used (or &quot;made&quot; by &quot;processing techniques&quot;) a data set that shows little variation. Then careful scaling can create the impression it shows variation, when really there is too little... (Hint - Watch the vertical scale)

Modern computers give the oppotunity to calculate the data so many ways and with such subtlety that it can be well nigh on impossible to detect it, let alone know what has or has not been &quot;calculated&quot;... I have not omitted any data, I have just subtracted a couple of tenths of a degree from about a dozen data points, IT'S THAT EASY...

  • 299. 5 - Mixing of data sets, and the deliberate misrepresentation of data
  • 300. Mixed or mixing of data sets Never a good idea this, but the Greenland data set is complete to about 1900, so we'll add known temperature variations since, as seems generally agreed by most people. ie, O.7C rise over the 20th Century, and a fall back of about 0.6C (including a 3 to 4 year stasis) since then to now (May 2008). Before adding modern measured temp. increases, first we'll return to Mann's mixing of data sets. Mann used 112 data sets of the 300 + the study had access to. One data set specically had quite an effect..
  • 301. The last part of the data set Mann et al used was taken from a record that stated that the increased ring width was due to other factors than temperature. Mann used the increased ring width to infer increased temperature, a clear, and dishonest use of the data set. This was done by Mann knowingly.
  • 302. http://www.ornery.org/essays/warwatch/2007-03-04-1.html All in a Good Cause a quote from, &quot; What were those bad numbers Mann plugged in to get his fake results? Modern bristlecone pine tree-ring data in which recent tree rings showed the widths that would normally mean unusually warm weather. However, these trees were located near temperature recording stations that showed lower than usual temperatures. So, instead of being a sign of warmer temperatures, the trees are actually responding to the increased CO2 levels.&quot;

In short, before you can understand what a plot shows, first you must understand the assumptions behind the statistical processes used that created the plotted data..

  • 379. I hope I’ve shown how easy it is to produce something that is nothing more than a fraudulent figment of my imagination. (It’s useless, but it hopefully illustrates the point..) “THE GREENLAND HOCKEY STICK PLOT” (Modern climate science is not what it should be.)
  • 380. Nearly the end.
  • 381. An observation.
  • 382. An observation. Mann et al used “error bars”, the grey areas in the plots of the hockey stick. This was to show possible errors in the data, both positive and negative of the value plotted. Interestingly, if you “imagine” periods of positive and negative errors in the data as plotted, you can see what follows could be plotted from their data.... (Even when done very roughly.)

  • 386. Periods of positive and negative errors…
  • 387. known or unknown errors in the data…
  • 388. Is there any similarity to Lamb 1965…
  • 389. Had Mann et al always built in a “get out” clause ? ?
  • 390. Given the size of the error bars is there any way

  • 394. Mann et al’s “Hockey stick” plot of the “consensus” view of our planet's past 1,000 year climate &quot;history&quot; was (and some still regard as IS) one of the first building blocks of what has become the biggest scam in human history so far. “Man made” Global Warming Richard S. Courtney summed it up best for me as, the attempted justification of, “taxes you HAVE to pay”
