So called scientists named Mann and Briffa created hockey stick graphs that supposedly prove global warming. When Steven McIntyre requested the raw data he was refused which is unprecedented. After taking legal action he obtained the data and quickly found why the men wouldn't release it. It was so badly flawed that it was meaningless! The accompanying graph shows the real temperature change of the last 2000 years using raw data from Mann's and Briffa's studies and other sources. It is clear we are no where close to as warm as it was 1000 years ago.
