The Star Phoenix reports that we in Saskatoon have enjoyed weather on average 8 degrees warmer than average for December – in a time when the forecasters were predicting colder weather than normal.  Our average December has temperatures averaging 14 degrees C below zero and our average last month was 6 below.

This is a La Niña year which has made us colder and drier in the past, but doesn’t seem to be having the cooling effect yet and that got me to wondering: the global warming skeptics typically argue with the models predicting warming saying the models are inaccurate.  What if they are inaccurate, but the inaccuracy misses the full magnitude of the warming?  Predicting the weather is hard – is predicting the warming any easier?

Get ready for a roller coaster ride – and may we all survive.
