He Shoots, He Scores

We are all familiar with the graph that shows an abrupt rise in temperature from a flat base line. The graph resembles a hockey stick, and is now the basis of the entire global warming hysteria. But is it true? In 2006 the National Research Council was tasked by Congress to look into the data used to determine temperature rise over the past 1,000 years. The NRC looked at the data and concluded that there were some errors but the errors were of little effect. Global warming was thereby validated as fact. But a Canadian named Steve McIntyre, a science advisor to the Canadian government, was not so readily convinced. He asked repeatedly to see the original data, and was repeatedly denied. Finally, after years of struggle, he came upon the original data on which the so-called “hockey stick” graph was based, and discovered the data was cherry-picked to achieve the desired result. Of 252 tree ring cores in the original data set, only 12 cores were used, and those 12 were the only cores that supported global warming. The others either showed no change in global temperatures over the last 1,000 years or showed a decline in global temperatures. Why the con job? Who profits from the global warming hoax, whether monetarily or ideologically? Someone must, or it wouldn’t have happened.       



Hockey sticks are made of graphite

And if you want to get the graph right

Ya gotta cherry pick your data set

So that you get the end point rise

That points the blade up to the skies

And global warming is the thing you get

We know it’s all a great big fraud

We smiled at Al when he hee-hawed

At Kyoto that soon the earth will steam

As temps rose quickly due to our

Enormous love for fossil power

We just assumed another Big Al scheme

And now we find the data’s wrong

They put in stuff that don’t belong

And got us all into a swivet stew

I wonder who’s the master here

Who’s pushing this the faster here

And I believe it’s only you know who

A movie set, a Nobel Prize

A noble brow and otherwise

Yes he’s the guy who’s running for the score

I think we know the answer now

With cap and trade the big cash cow

The gold will flow to our friend Big Al Gore
