No Takers On Ex-Greenpeace Chief’s $100,000 Climate Bet!

From Guido:


In the wake of December’s Paris climate agreement, environmental scientist and Greenpeace co-founder and President Dr Patrick Moore offered a stonker of a bet:

With a $100 billion climate fund backing 188 nations’ commitments to cut greenhouse gas levels – including a minimum 40% cut from the EU – this bet seems like a sure investment for eco-warriors with cash to burn.

But more than a month later, nobody has taken up Dr Moore’s offer. Do the climate lobby not have faith in the “world’s greatest diplomatic success” to have a flutter?



Of course, as followers of Notalot knew already, CO2 emissions will not only be higher in ten years time, they will also be higher still in 2030.

    Patrick should be very careful NOT to take the bet from someone with a hand in the carbon accounting. !!

    As we have seen with temperatures….. its way too easy to rig the outcome.

      You mean, no one from the University of East Anglia need apply?

    We should celebrate when his predictions come true, as the planet will be far healthier when it does!!!
