There's a crude zig zag pattern chart from 1910 to the present in the latest Time Magazine that tries to prove global warming exists. No actual highs or lows, just an artistic interpretation that proves nothing.

Showing it in glaring red is supposed to add credibility to the threat, and maybe it does to ardent believers. I should think truth wouldn't have to use advertising gimmicks to make it seem real, but if that's all scientists have, they have no choice.

Future weather predictions are hit and miss at most, and the local weather man proved more miss than hit last week. He predicted fifty percent chance of storms every day for six straight days, and not once did it come to pass.

So predictions of a 100 percent future global warming threat is iffy at best.

A 30 percent chance would be more realistic, and they may get more takers.

Coincidentally, thirty percent is also the time-tested chance odds-on favorites win in all betting sports.

The issue was predicting the future, not scientific mumbo jumbo that can't be proven or demonstrated. If you believe Deuce can, or anyone can predict the future, welcome to the unreal world.

That's why I always bolt my cups to the table. You never know when they'll spontaneously fly up into the ceiling. After all, nobody can predict the future.

An excellent example of being in the unreal world. Tell me, do you believe in guardian angels ESP, and UFOs too.
