This morning as I was freezing my ass off, I started thinking; "This sure doesn't feel like global warming".
So I thought, here's a chance to start the Global Warming Challenge. I'm going to assign a point if the day's high temperature exceeds the normal high for that day. In addition, I will assign a point if the day's low temperature exceeds the normal low and ties where applicable. No points for a tie.
For a bonus, I assign five points for a record on the "warm" or "cool" side.
For my source, I'll use the Weather Underground, who keeps a very good record of historical weather data here in the Cincinnati area.
The challenge? There are 732 points available (without bonus points), I'm willing to wager $20-$50 to some global warming believer that half the points will be on the "cold" side.
Look it's a 50-50 proposition, unless you believe in global warming, then it's a slam dunk.
Anyone willing to take me up on it? Of course if you are a liberal, I'm sure you'd be willing to if it was someone else's money. But what about your own?
For the record, I do start with a lead 2-0 from yesterday's figures.
I'll try to post the figures on a weekly basis.
