Another example of the powerful inverse law of global warm-mongering at work:
Almost as soon as the Kyoto Protocol on global warming came into effect on February 15, Kashmir suffered the highest snowfall in three decades with over 150 killed, and Mumbai recorded the lowest temperature in 40 years.
It’s infallible! Meanwhile, Manhattanites better hold off buying surfboards, according to the Cato Institute’s Patrick Michaels:
It is inevitable that one of tomorrow’s headlines will be that scientists have dramatically scaled back their projections of sea level rise associated with global warming. Had they paid attention to data (and snow) that began accumulating as long as 15 years ago, they would never have made such outlandish forecasts to begin with.
If the sea doesn’t rise, we can always go back to worrying about fish.
- Warmongering continues to mean cooling?

- Your hero Pat Michaels’ blog said this in 1998:
we would be willing to wager that the 10-year period beginning in January 1998 and extending through December 2007 will show a statistically significant downward trend in the monthly satellite record of global temperatures.
Surely such a wager should sound interesting to those who think the planetary temperature will increase several tenths of a degree during that period.
No reasonable offers refused…
Climatologist James Annan learned of the bet last spring, contacted the blog, and they refused the bet.Posted by schmidtb98 on 2005 12 30 at 05:01 PM • permalink
- This all proves my law of government action. Anything the government tries to do will result in the opposite happening. Since Kyoto, a government project, tries to reduce warming, some warming should be occurring. Or are governments really trying to cause warming, in order to get more power through spreading panic, while saying they’re trying to reduce warming? And so things should be getting cooler? I’ve confused myself. Could it be that governments just can’t do anything about the weather? Nah.Posted by robert speirs on 2005 12 30 at 05:42 PM • permalink
- So Schmidtb98, a wager based on a ten year trend ending in ‘07 is refused in the spring of ‘05 is revealing of what exactly? Other than three-quarters of the uncertainty surrounding the wager has been removed. Any such wager agreed to would only prove the stupidity of one of the parties under said circumstances.
- If you read the link, Forbes, you’ll see they were unwilling to make a new bet either.

- Whats the bet Tim Lambert thinks you are making a serious scientific statement?Posted by niobium2000 on 2005 12 30 at 10:18 PM • permalink
- Lambert’s probably too busy defending the Lancet estimate that global temperatures have risen 100,000 degrees lately.Posted by Art Vandelay on 2005 12 31 at 01:40 AM • permalink

I’m disturbed that I missed this.
This is why global warming is sush a sneaky devil. The temp can rise 100,000 degrees and you might miss it if you aren’t paying attention.
Coming to terms with the fact that I am not a good steward. Not a good steward at all.

Wait for it. Any minute now, some acolyte of Gaia is going to comment that the colder weather MEANS NOTHING, that it’s just a bump in the road on the way to Jurassic-type swamps in Montreal, and dead polar bears washing up on the steps of beach homes in Fairbanks.
