Journal I Be Hatin''s Journal: Global warming debunked... believers still believe

Less than a week after this story, in which the teeming Slashdot hordes declared global warming indisputable and likened global warming deniers to holocaust deniers, comes this interesting development: the famous "hockey stick" is an artifact of poor mathematical technique. It turns out that if you improperly normalize your data, you can always find a hockey stick. The scientists who discovered this submitted their findings to Nature, who decided that it wasn't important enough to publish. I'm sure their decision wasn't influenced by politics at all.
