Givin' 'Em Some Stick

Bishop Hill has put together a stunning post, summarising the fruits of Steve McIntyre of Climate Audit's investigation into the data and statistical methods underlying the famous 'hockey stick' graph of temperatures shown in An Inconvenient Truth and featured prominently in IPCC reports.

[This analysis] must be read, absorbed and understood; it is the story of how a certain section of the scientific community deliberately set out to deceive the people and politicians who encountered them. It is the story of how this same set of the scientific community obfuscated data, refused to allow replication of experiments, falsified conclusions and lied, repeatedly, to force a particular point of view. - Devil's Kitchen
If what Bishop Hill reports here is correct, it is indeed damning.
