Will the new 2011-2020 decade be warmer or cooler than the last one?
That’s what we’re betting on (FOR CHARITY).
This bet is also known as the Honeycutt Climate Bet for Charity, after Rob Honeycutt who first proposed this bet. You can find the entire background here.
First of all Charles Zeller has also pledged $5,000 for the warm side, and has already paid half of it to Doctors Without Borders. So whatever happens from now on, I will consider that this blog has led to some kind of succees in that it has played a role in leading to this generous donation. The money will no doubt alleviate much pain and suffering among those of us who happened to be born in unfortunate economic and social conditions. It may even save a life or more. So hats off to Charles.

Here’s the latest list. I have to admit that the warmists, though small in number, are a generous bunch.
They have pledged over $14,000.00 so far. The coolists have also made a good number of pledges, and have in fact far surpassed all my earler expectations. No matter who wins, some good will surely come out of this.
The cool side: (I hope my math is correct).
And the warm side:
If you wish to up your bet, just say so. If you wish to cancel it, well there I can’t help you. Pledged is pledged! 🙂
