The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars

Michael E. Mann

Columbia University Press

In this chapter, the author comments on the appearance of seventeen climate change deniers on the cover of Rolling Stone in January 2010—what the magazine calls its list of the planet's seventeen “worst enemies” that included James Inhofe, Marc Morano, and Fred Singer. He also mentions an article by Antonio Regalado, published on February 14, 2005, in the Wall Street Journal, which reported the latest attacks on the hockey stick by Stephen McIntyre. The article featured the likeness of McIntyre and that of the author on the front page. The author considers the assertions made by McIntyre against the hockey stick, the use of principal component analysis (PCA) by McIntyre and Ross McKitrick in their 2005 paper, and the rebuttals made by a number of groups to McIntyre and McKitrick. Finally, he discusses the use of the Internet by climate change deniers as a means for disseminating climate change disinformation.
