Or: Who wants a Job where you can be Wrong and still Claim you’re Right?
A Global Warming expert writes for our local paper. He predicted Winter of 2007/2008 would be a drought. Instead, we had snow levels 150% of normal. He credited the high snow levels to global warming.
He predicted Spring/Summer of 2008 hotter than normal. Instead, we had pretty normal summer temperatures.
He then predicted Winter of 2008/2009 would have no snow. We had a pretty average winter, in terms of cold and snow. He credited the two days that we had near-record cold to global warming.
He then predicted the Spring/Summer of 2009 would be a hot and dry. We have had above average rainfall and the temperatures have been cool. He claims the extra rain is because of Global Warming.
He's a scientist who hasn’t accurately predicting anything is the last two
years, and still has a job. Who wouldn't want that job?

"Carlin’s report listed a number of recent developments he said the EPA did not consider, including that global temperatures have declined for 11 years; that new research predicts Atlantic hurricanes will be unaffected; that there’s “little evidence” that Greenland is shedding ice at expected levels; and that solar radiation has the largest single effect on the earth’s temperature.
