I’m a little overdue with the climate bet (FOR CHARITY) update. But here it is.
This bet is also known as the Honeycutt Climate Bet for Charity, named after Rob Honeycutt who first proposed this bet. You can find the background info here.
The cool side takes an early lead!
Will the new 2011-2020 decade be warmer or cooler than the last one? The first month, January – 2011, came in well below the 2001-2010 average. Call it a 3-pointer for the coolists – a message to the warmists! We’ve taken the early lead. And looking at the La Nina that’s taken hold, that early lead will certainly grow. Is it going to be a blowout?
It’s a long ballgame though – 119 more months! Here are the bets so far (I hope I haven’t left anyone off the list. If so, let me know and I’ll repost the table).
The cool side bets so far:
Also add reader Mathhu ($100) to the above list. New total $5550.
And the warm side bets:
The warmists, though small in number, are indeed a generous bunch.
So far we (both sides) have pledged over $19,000.00. So no matter who wins, some good will come out of this.
