Hockey Stick A Lie States Chief Statistician

"A key piece of evidence in climate change science was slammed as “exaggerated” on Wednesday by the UK’s leading statistician, in a vindication of claims that global warming sceptics have been making for years."

"Professor David Hand, president of the Royal Statistical Society, said that a graph shaped like an ice hockey stick that has been used to represent the recent rise in global temperatures had been compiled using “inappropriate” methods. “It used a particular statistical technique that exaggerated the effect [of recent warming],” he said."

Bottom line: It's a lie. And you can invite all the James Cameron's you want onto TV to state differently and it still won't make it true. Mr. Cameron is a great film maker but scientist - he is not.
