The data underlying the famous “hockey stick” global warming graph has finally been found after having earlier been misplaced by leading climate researchers. The newly recovered data confirms the accuracy of the abrupt upward turn in readings characteristic of the “hockey stick” shape found in many global warming projections.

Up until now, however, the data on which the controversial graph had been based was presumed to be lost, so it was not known exactly which aspects of global warming the chart illustrated. Now that the data has been recovered, scientists can state with complete certainty that this updated chart accurately chronicles the past and future trajectory of the global warming crisis.

    O Zombie! My Zombie!
    (with apologies to Walt Whitman)

    O zombie! My zombie! O corpse that will not die!
    The hallowed ship is lost at sea, her compass gone awry.
    The vessel’s listing hard to port, and drifting with the tide;
    The able crewmen, cast away, are scattered far and wide.
    But O ghoul! Ghoul! Ghoul!
    O harbinger of dread!
    At zombietime, my zombie dwells –
    Not living, yet undead.

    O zombie! My zombie! For thee, the bell untolls.
    For thee, at PJM, the crimson carpet now unrolls.
    Arise, arise, O ghastly one, and spread thy fetid wings;
    For thee, the poets versify; for thee, the minstrel sings.
    O muse! Muse! Muse!
    O festering fountainhead!
    At PJM, my zombie’s posts
    Will now be widely read.

    O zombie! My zombie! Thy flesh is pale and cold.
    No glint of light shines in thine eye; thou’rt overgrown with mold.
    No heartbeat sounds within thy breast; no wisp of breath escapes.
    The worms bore through thy very brain; thy mouth forever gapes.
    But animated nonetheless,
    And with determined tread,
    Upon the web, my zombie walks –
    Not living, yet undead.

    How about going back to the 1700s so we can see the real truth and not some shortened graph that looks good for the global warming idiots…

    by the way, who found the “lost” data… Al Gore, in his sock drawer?

    Come on chickenshit, lets see the graph back to the 1700s…. come on…. you can do it.

    You do realize this is satire, right? Not quite sure who you’re angry at here, nor why…

    varooom: James…You do realize this is satire, right? Not quite sure who you’re angry at here, nor why…

    James clearly did not read the graph.

    I linked to this, and I put the title in all caps.

    This should be fun!

    Pretty funny but you should probably update it to include “Al Gore is publicly called a laughingstock at an Apple shareholders meeting he’s attending”.

    Hey Zombie: you forgot to add a line for silly once right wing bloggers who have turned into leftist fruitcakes who defend AGW just ’cause they need to prove they aren’t fascists.

    I think CJ and others might feel slighted without representation…heh.

    Damn, man…even I got the joke. You need to calm down!

    Missed an important milestone on that chart. April 26th, 2006, when the South Park episode “ManBearPig” first aired, mocking Al Gore’s AGW crusade.

    South Park made it hip to mock Gore and AGW.

    Just wondering, before I consider subscribing… is this an actual, individually composed letter to each subscriber, or does every writer compose a single letter just about every week and send the same composition to all with the subscribers they’re assigned to write to?

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to get that “perfect balance” between usability and appearance.
    I must say that you’ve done a excellent job with this.
    Additionally, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Internet
    explorer. Superb Blog!
