Extreme Events Increase With Global Warming
More nonsense from SKS. If the world is warmer it is likely to be hotter. Great line of reasoning there. Temperatures in Moscow "may have been the warmest in almost 1000 years." So it was probably warmer 1000 years ago. Do you guys realise how silly you sound at times?

Seems pretty content-free as far as a rant goes.  On a side note, it brings up an issue that annoys me about media reporting of extreme events.  "X event is the hottest in 100 years"  It's often the hottest event in 100 years, because the record to which it is being compared is only 100 years long!  So X event is the hottest on record, or something like that.  There was no event 101 years ago that was hotter...

Good point Skywatcher.

Is this the same PK who hangs out at Bart V's place?
