Understanding "Hide The Decline"

Marc Sheppard has a lengthy piece on understanding the "Hide The Decline" comment from the leaked/hacked emails. Specifically, what it is that they are trying to hide. (via)

"contrary to what you’ve likely read elsewhere in the blogosphere or heard from the few policymakers and pundits actually addressing the issue, it was not the temperature decline the planet has been experiencing since 1998 that Jones and friends conspired to hide. Certainly, the simple fact that the e-mail was sent in November of 1999 should allay any such confusion.

In fact, the decline Jones so urgently sought to hide was not one of measured temperatures at all, but rather figures infinitely more important to climate alarmists -- those determined by proxy reconstructions.

Basically it is the story of how this;

turned into this;

the famous "Hockey-Stick" graph.

Further, he explains how they did it, why they did it, and why they should not have if they were being genuine. It is a long read, but will get you up to speed even if you have not been paying attention at all so far.
