Decadal Global Temperature Bet
By Paul Homewood
Readers may recall the decadal global temperature bet made back in 2011. This was the background:
A global decadal temperature bet was made in early 2011.
At the time the bet was made (early 2011) December 2010 marked the end of the previous ten year period. January 2011 marked the beginning of the next decade. The transition stimulated the formation of a decadal global climate bet.
And so the coolists (led by Pierre Gosselin – NoTricksZone) and the warmists (led by Rob Honeycutt – Skeptical Science) are having a bet. They agreed to use a composite of Remote Sensing Systems (RSS) and University of Alabama Huntsville (UAH) lower troposphere temperature – close to the earth’s surface. They agreed that the result would be accepted without quibbling, as it was agreed between them that those series are the best that we’ve got. The average of the two series will decide the bet!
Kiwi Thinker has been keeping tabs on progress, and reports that, despite being in the middle of a near record El Nino, the warmists are still losing.
His full report is here.
SkS will be praying that we don’t get another La Nina like 1999/2000!
Don’t you find it rather curious that SkS would bet on satellite temperatures, the same ones they are now trying to rubbish as inaccurate and meaningless?
