An alarmists is frustrated with the dead-end defense of the hockey stick.
From the Climategate 2.0 collection, alarmist John Cook (?) seems to be frustrated with Michael Mann’s never-say-die defense of the hokey stick:
I am afraid that Mike is defending something that increasingly can not be defended. He is investing too much personal stuff in this and not letting the science move ahead.
Science has moved ahead anyway as even the IPCC has abandoned the hokey stick.
