My son Maxim Lott's lead article at FoxNews.com: "Eight Botched Environmental Forecasts"


Maxim's piece is available here.

UPDATE: So here is an attack on Maxim's piece.

littlegreenfootballs.com notes: "The fact that Fox News writer Maxim Lott couldn’t find anything more recent than ten years ago for this hackneyed list (and had to reach back 40 years for 5 of his examples) strongly suggests that climate scientists’ predictions are improving — which is, after all, how science is supposed to work." . . . . This deceptive crap is a big hit with right wing blogs, of course.


The problem is that in recent years it is hard to find short term predictions by man-made Global Warming hysterics. You can't check to see whether a prediction is accurate if all the claims are 50 to 100 years in the future.

Nice piece! Isn't it amazing how much climate 'science' resembles 'cold reading'? Please excuse the pun.
