UN IPCC challenged to retract AGW hooey

In a letter to the chairman of the UN IPCC four prominent scientists wrote:

... to ask that you now in view of the evidence retract support from the current IPCC position ... and admit that there is no observational evidence in measured data going back 22,000 years or even millions of years that CO2 levels (whether from man or nature) have driven or are driving world temperatures or climate change.

If you believe there is evidence of the CO2 driver theory in the available data please present a graph of it.

We draw your attention to three observational refutations of the IPCC position (and note there are more). ...

Given the economic devastation that is already happening and which is now widely recognised will continue to flow from this policy, what possible justification can there be for its retention?

We ask you and all those whose names are associated with IPCC policy to accept the scientific observations and renounce current IPCC policy.

I won’t be holding my breath waiting for the response. But if and when it arrives it will no doubt cite the latest IPCC report and include a graph shaped like a hockey stick.

Don't be fooled by Charts , I worker for 2 years doing Charts on about 60 Stock price for Companies listed on the TSE and I did them by hand and had to learn how to set-up a graph for the Dollar value and handle Stock-splits along with Dividend pay-outs that discounted a Stock after the Record-Date .

What Al Gore did in his movie was to take a selected "Window" of time or Number movements that could have been plotted on a exagerated graph that didn't use a Logrithmic progression to refect the % change .

The easiest way to expalin this is to grab a piece on normal Grid-paper and mark off 20 squares vertically and 12 squares Horizontally from a single point like a x,y, intersect graph.
Now imagine each of the 20 lines being a .05 cent increase in a stock that was Posted at $3.00 for the base-number , and the 12 lines are for each month of the year .
Each 5 cent move upwards over the 12 months will show as a dot for the day it was recorded that month , if the stock goes from $3.00 to $4.00 in one year the chart will have 20 five cent increases in a ordered fashion like stairs .
This chart may be good for a price increase snapshot but it doesn't reflect the Rate Of Return for investing , Gore's charts are actually Good-News because as the temperature goes up the Percentage of change goes down merely by the greater mean-temperature number it is divided into .

Basically , would you rather take 50% of $800.00 or 2% of $300'000.00 dollars based solely on one single measurement with no other calculations.
And this is how Gore skews his Charts to scare people , plus if he needs to use Picture and talk really slow to get his followers to accept his claims, they must be pretty stupid or usefull-idiots easy to dupe by animations and a Polar bear on a piece of ice looking for prey in the water.
