    "Time has proven that even 22 years ago climate scientists understood the dynamics behind global warming well enough to accurately predict warming, says an analysis that compares predictions in 1990 with 20 years of temperature records.
    After an adjustment to account for natural fluctuations, the predictions and the observed increases matched up, the current research found."

    Did you read the whole article? It's hysterical.

    The results didn't actually match up, so they skewed them! Where's Nate Silver to call "bull shit" when we need him:

    In percentage terms, a 0.63 degrees F increase isn't really that close to a 1 degree F increase.

    10 years is also an incredibly short period to look at.

    Then there's the weather stations these studies rely on. They're not owned, managed, or maintained by the the people running the study. The study relies on self reporting.

    And, besides the fact that there's no "control" to compare the results to -- what would be the planets temperature if human existence ended in 1990 -- there are all kinds of flaws with the stations themselves:

    So tonight's game means nothing? If I don't die on the 21st, it doesn't matter? Because the world is warming so fast that I will burn to a crisp three days later?

    Do you deny what the articles claim?

    There are problems with the weather stations. That's a fact.
