The so-called hockey stick graph which shows centuries of stable global temperatures, followed by sharp increases in recent decades, has already been shown to have serious flaws as proof of global warming. But now, according to the World Climate report, new evidence from Antarctica, published by a prestigious international team of scientists further challenges the infamous hockey stick. Their report focuses on elephant seals which are rarely seen in Antarctica today due to the extreme cold, but were apparently abundant in the area over the last few thousand years, as seen by skin and hair samples that were collected. With the finding that in the past, Antarctica was substantially warmer than present, this sounds like another slap shot against the faulty hockey-stick notion.
