    Statistically insignificant does not mean there was no rise. It means that there is not enough increase to statistically support a conclusion with high confidence

    While most of my heat has been directed at what I consider bogus statistics and hysteria, we do need to remember that continually dumping more dirt into the air year after year does not constitute a good plan.

    If we can chill about the global warming goofiness and concentrate on the reality that this is not good because we have to breathe this stuff, we can get further forward.

    The bet was that there would be a record temperature. To put that in simple terms, all that was necessary to win the bet was a single temperature that rose above the highest temperature ever recorded. There was not a single record temp during the 4 year span of the bet that rose above highest temp recorded in 1998. That is not a statistical anything, it is a factual data point.

    It means that there could also be a statistically insignificant DROP in temps. Either way the run away warming that the alarmists have been harping on is proveably NOT occuring.
