The Auditor – A Cartoon by Josh

Cartoons By

This cartoon pays homage to founder Steve McIntyre – a fellow Torontonian (whom I’ve never met). Steve spent much of his career in the mining sector and is shown here wearing the kind of headlamp hardrock miners typically wear.

It isn’t an overstatement to say that the years he’s devoted to challenging the hockey stick graph, among other issues, have altered the course of scientific history. (See The Hockey Stick Illusion: Climategate and the Corruption of Science book here.)

The more than 40 people from 12 different countries now participating in the Citizen Audit of the UN’s 2007 climate report are, it seems to me, following in Steve McIntyre’s footsteps.

Hooray for us all!
