Say Goodbye to My Little Hockey Stick

Professor Phil Jones admits his organizational skills are so bad he no longer has the raw data to support his famous "hockey stick" graph.   As if that weren't enough, however, Jones made further stunning revelations to the BBC yesterday:
Professor Jones also conceded the possibility that the world was warmer in medieval times than now – suggesting global warming may not be a man-made phenomenon.

And he said that for the past 15 years there has been no ‘statistically significant’ warming.

There is nothing "settled" in this science:

N - When scientists say "the debate on climate change is over", what exactly do they mean - and what don't they mean?

It would be supposition on my behalf to know whether all scientists who say the debate is over are saying that for the same reason. I don't believe the vast majority of climate scientists think this. This is not my view. There is still much that needs to be undertaken to reduce uncertainties, not just for the future, but for the instrumental (and especially the palaeoclimatic) past as well.

Of course it is the politicians and devotees of global warming who argue the science is settled.
