As I said before, I don’t think much of the latest prediction of cooling. But apparently , the authors take it seriously, and believe it as a prediction (pers comm). So RC has decided to see if they are serious. My expectation is that they will find some spurious excuse for wimping out (I’ve offered to put up $100 on the bet not being taken, with me paying out if it is taken; any offers?).
Andy Revkin covers this. The only complaint I have is that JA is being airbrushed out of the picture. Such is life.
Coming soon: betting on sea ice.
