I want a piece of this action

Wharton School of Business Prof. Scott Armstrong offered to bet AlGore $20K that the IPCC's temperature forecasts are wrong. I want Gore to take the bet because he'll lose so badly.

Armstrong and [Monash University's Dr. Kesten] Green rated the methodology used by the panel against 89 principles of good forecasting derived from years of research. They found that the panel report breached 72 of those principles. They concluded that the forecasts the weather was likely to change in many negative ways were worthless.

And The Monk wants a piece of the action.
