Climate Change Presses Forward Despite Warming Hiatus

(KPBS VIEWERS, PLEASE NOTE: Ignore my previous comment. Mrs. McKeever, my HS English teacher would be very dissapointed in my earlier embarassing submission of the wrong draft of my comment. I humbly beg your forgiveness.)
Hey, Lesliegraham, wait a minute! In case you hadn’t heard, it appears that the the IPCC’s AR-5 draft throws Michael Mann and his infamous Hockey Stick under the bus, along with his misrepresentations of the MVP.
I know it is hard for interested citizens like you and me to keep up with all of this, but I respectfully suggest that Coach deserves an apology.
Please check out Fig 7 in the NASA-GISS paper referenced in this link: See: http://pubs.giss.nasa.gov/docs/2009/2....

Unless you are determined to cling to Michael Mann's Hockey Stick (the blue line in Figure 7), it looks like the MWP wasn't simply a North Atlantic event after all.
On the other hand, if you are still a tried-and-true 'Mann Fan True Believer', I suggest that you also check out the well referenced report in the link below to see what the recently released AR-5 draft is saying about the credibility of Mann and his infamous Hockey Stick: See: http://wattsupwiththat.com/2013/08/21....
It appears to me that the AR-5 group has ended up agreeing with the arguments presented in the paper presented in the link below. Pay special attention to Fig 7.1 near the end of this lengthy paper: See: http://www.ipcc.ch/ipccreports/far/wg....

The bottom line? Mann either (1) lied to us all, or (2) made a terrible mistake, or (3) simply did not know what he was doing. My opinion of his reason is biased toward alternative #1 by the fact that he said he destroyed the data, which is an unforgivable sin in science. Well, actually I should say that at first he claimed to have destroyed the data, and later revised his remarks to say he may have lost it somewhere.
Mann led us astray (for whatever reason), telling us forget about those regionally isolated reports of Greenland farming we learned about in high school.

IMHO, Michael Mann is the source of much of the public’s confusion and lack of faith in climate science.

Maybe someone (e.g., Michael Mann) lied to to us all you instead of Coach. That seems to be what the IPCC thinks, according to the first link below. You do know, don'y you,that Greenland was actually and being farmed during the MWP?

If we're so much warmer than the MWP now, why isn't someone farming in Greenland?
