Predictions are notoriously difficult, especially when the future is involved (I cant remember who said that) Look it doesn't matter if you get it right, as long as you can get the fear factor in there.

Ignorance is bliss but it does not change reality. I'll go with the experts on this one. I hope you go to a real doctor if you ever need surgery.

it's a religion and a bad one at that, just look at the idiocy of the warmunists here

If they predicted that all was well, where would they be now. Out of work I think. So they fib a little and live to eat another day. What are a few little fibs when you are saving the whole planet. Global warming is not a science problem, it is pure politics, that is why it stinks so much.

They can't correctly predict tornadoes but they have the climate temperatures on lockdown. Sure they're not "correct" in the real sense but in the made up alarmist world they are scary accurate and precise. Alarmists live in Bizarro world where reality means nothing to them. Their reality is based on predictions and they believe the predictions overrule actual reality. Skeptic: "We've had no significant warming for 17 years." Alarmist with blank look on face: "The climate models predicted a 1 degree C increase in temperatures so it's getting really bad."

NOAA likes to add fear factor to all its press releases. They do not consistently report the same details, but look to see what alarmist detail they can add. Some years it is X warmest temperature on record. Other years it is USA is X warmest, when globally is not as warm. Now they are changing the baselines to show a larger temperature differential. Typically they use a recent 30 year period for comparison like 1951-1980, 1961-1990, 1971-2000, or 1981-2010. Instead they use the 20th century average so they can show .6C warmer rather than .1 or .2C warmer.

There are two issues here ... the reliability of forecasting for the year ahead (ie how bad the season will be) and the forecasting in the hours and days before a tropical storm hits. NOAA have a very good record of the latter which can be seen at As for the former, well that's a lot more difficult to do. Does our lack of predictive power year-to-year disprove AGW? No. If you have a better theory than AGW to explain our observations, kindly post the links to the papers so us warmists can read them.
