Why, it's beginning to look like a hockey stick. Sort of like this one..
Since Mann's hockey stick gave rise to a UN panel to mitigate a coming man-made danger, which resulted in a plan to regulate the world's economy by limiting carbon emissions, shouldn't the government's new hockey stick give rise to some kind of plan to mitigate the growing dependency crisis? After all, that chart is rising at about the same level as CO2. It's unsustainable.
