2008 to be among hottest?

See? They've got it all figured out. Even though we've had a bitter-assed cold, record-setting winter so far, the media wants you to remember--it's going to be hot this summer!

Notice how they call this winter "cool" instead of what has been...freakin' COLD!

Britain: 2008 may be among hottest years -

LONDON — This year is forecast to be among the top 10 hottest years on record, Britain's weather office said Thursday, despite a strong cooling effect predicted from the tropical weather phenomenon known as La Nina.

The global surface temperature in 2008 will rise 0.67 degrees above what climate scientists call the long-term average of 57.2 degrees, the Met Office said. The average is derived by calculating the mean of surface temperatures registered globally between 1961 and 1990.

Here's something else that should concern you. Alarmist scientists are basing their predictions on an average derived between 1961 and 1990 (roughly 30 years). The Earth is believed to be 4.5 billion years old (4,500,000,000). If you do the math, we're basing our average temperature on a range that is .000000006 % of the Earth's total estimated age (if you divide 4.5 billion by 30 you get 150 millions similar periods that were NEVER MEASURED). That's a lot of lost time in the Earth's history to ignore when you're telling the world that our awful, modern existence is killing the Earth.

I hope statisticians are freaking out when they read that. In other words, our "average" (measured over 30 years) DOES NOT accurately represent the average over the Earth's history, and that doesn't even address the problems associated with the actual temperature measurements since 1961. There are all sorts of scientific problems associated with this "theory."
