Nate Silver, tired of hearing people equate weather with climate change, has laid down the (money-filled) gauntlet. For every day that the temperature in your hometown is 1 degree below average, he will pay you $25. If it’s 1 degree above average, he will pay you $25. Daily winners and money are totaled on a monthly basis.
As a commenter notes, Nate is not trying to address the actual climate change argument, just straightforwardly challenging the ability of individuals being able to “feel” changes in the climate on a local level, especially given the limits of selective memory.
The contest was open until the 20th (Monday) and it appears no one took him up on it. I’d love to see him extend the challenge longer to see if he would get any takers.
