Message to interested readers, I'm just an outside life long observer and my writing is done in fits and starts with constant short and long interrupts, thus it never surpasses the 'grandma moses' level. But, my information is solid and my reasoning is solid and I welcome anyone with more time and focus, to take anything at WUWTW and use it as a starting point for better efforts that reach more people.
Of course, if anyone were interested in helping me work on this, my obvious passion, to see what I could accomplish with the luxury of full-time focus on my side, please do let me know. Thank you, Peter aka citizenschallenge

Investor's Business Daily POC#4 - “In this case, it was temperature data. Mann's famous "hockey stick" rendition of temperature and climate changes makes it appear as if temperatures began rising sharply in the 19th century as carbon dioxide from the Industrial Revolution began to build up,”
Investor's Business Daily POC#5 - “and then soared uncontrollably in recent years to near-record highs for the last millennium.”
In the nearly two decades since those original papers global temperatures have continued to soar at a seemingly uncontrollable rate, still the GOP and Investors Business pretend they can ignore it away.
Improved estimates of ocean heat content from 1960 to 2015

“… We found that changes in OHC are relatively small before about 1980; since then, OHC has increased fairly steadily and, since 1990, has increasingly involved deeper layers of the ocean. In addition, OHC changes in six major oceans are reliable on decadal time scales. All ocean basins examined have experienced significant warming since 1998 …”
Investor's Business Daily POC#6 - “Mann used proxy data for much of his chart, which, because of its distinctive shape, was soon called the hockey stick.”
I wonder how many people who toss epitaphs at Dr. Mann, have ever looked at the papers - or though about the long steady slog and the community of scientists who had been working on gaining this understanding. Truly a generations long effort. Mann et al. were part of that effort. They never claimed they were the last word on anything! Check it out.
CO2 Science - Why We Can Be Sure.
This post is an interesting sort of one way collaborative effort and I've posted it before, but its worth repeating. You see, over the years I've communicated with a number of scientists and grads. Asking straight forward questions and often receiving informative replies. I try not to over do my welcome, after all these are very busy people with more important things to do. Still, for this post I sent a grand shout out to a number of my correspondence pals and received more responses than I expected including some informative surprises for me. I have taken great liberty slicing and dicing their responses. Rewriting some, leaving other quotes untouched and giving all of it some order.
Investor's Business Daily POC#8 - "The U.N.'s proposals would require a massive decline in the West's standard of living, and hundreds of billions of dollars in taxes.
Investor's Business Daily POC#9 - "The only problem is, according to critics, Mann's data were manipulated in such a way as to make them incorrect."
Mann’s data and results were correct.
