The Hockey stick

From Wikinormous

An invention by Michael Mann of the Department of Geosciences, University of Massachusetts.

By using tree rings as indicative for past temperature changes (going back to 1000 AD) – effectively making The medieval heat period and The little ice age invisible and creating an overall benign, slightly cooling trend in temperatures – and then at the end of the graph slabbing temperature points from urban heat islands, Michael Mann created The Hockey stick

A more lexical definition would be: sharply bent object giving Al Gore an Oscar and a Grammy award for promoting the new world order.

Hockey stick yes, but backwards-upside down.
