Josh “sticks the landing” with this one.

  1. This is definitely going on a t shirt! Please tell me its ok to use this image on my own T shirt.
    Pretty please?

  2. Terrific cartoon… and very timely too. The Stanley Cup playoffs started last night. Go Sabres!!!
    I could be a nitpicker and point out that hockey sticks are primarily made from carbon fiber composites. But what would be the fun in that…

  3. A coniferous evergreen hockeystick! Excellent. A treehouse labeled “CRU” cantilevered over a major ‘decline’ might be a worthy addition.

  4. Proving once again that the “pun is mightier than the sword”. Josh, once again “sticking it to the Mann”. Great t-shirt or mug material.

  5. You scored a winning goal Josh with this slapstick cartoon! Excellent work! BEST one yet, oh wait, that has yet to enter the game. [:)]

    May it go viral! (this NOT being permission, of course)….but it’s high time the satirists began an intelligent campaign.

  7. Wow, another T-shirt! I chortled over this image for several minutes – it’s a definite keeper. It looks like I’ll be wearing “Josh” this spring. Thanks, Anthony and Josh.
    pwl, I think you meant Josh scored a winning goal with this ‘slapshot’ cartoon. And I agree!

  8. Now Josh needs to peek at RC and check out the IPCC beer whosamajingy. I am sure he will be able to improve upon it.

  9. Give credit, where credit is due!

    You see One Tree, you’ve seen Yamal!
    Thanks, Amoorhouse!

    I love it. Carbon sequestration in hockey sticks.

  11. The background information (backstory) necessary to appreciate this drawing is voluminous. I imagine a T-shirt will need a 10,000 word essay printed on the back side just to keep all the characters, dates, and pseudoscience straight.

  12. Hm, a badly cured softwood hockey stick! It would have broken with the first slash or slapshot. Might as well plant it!
    Yamal teaches that somewhere there is always a tree-ring record that matches a segment of the temperature profile of any arbitrarily chosen micro-climate. Data selection and snooping can achieve miracles!

  13. Does this remind you of anyone? From Wiki:
    “Gollum was a Stoor Hobbit[1] of the River-folk, who lived near the Gladden Fields.[2] Originally known as “Sméagol”, he was later named “Gollum” after his habit of making “a horrible swallowing noise in his throat”.[3] His life was extended far beyond its natural limits by the effects of possessing the One Ring, which enslaved him to the point that he pursued it for the rest of his life after losing it to Bilbo Baggins.
    During his centuries under the Ring’s influence, he developed dissociative identity disorder: “Sméagol” still vaguely remembered things like friendship and love, while “Gollum” was a slave to the Ring who knew only treachery and violence. In The Two Towers, Samwise Gamgee named the good personality “Slinker”, and the bad personality “Stinker”. The two personalities had a love/hate relationship, and often quarrelled when Gollum talked to himself (as Tolkien puts it in The Hobbit, “through never having anyone else to speak to”).”

  14. AMoorhouse scores!
    [I think Mountain Hemlocks have those “flags” on top naturally. Since in Climate Science you only pick the “good” data, there’s no need to even core them.]

  15. I was so jealous when I saw what Amoorhouse had written that I just had to do something. What better to do than to fly to Climate Audit with the screamer?

  16. One tree to bring them all, and in pre-steam economies bind them, in CRU where the hockey sticks lie
