The Associated Press’ Seth Borenstein needs to learn the difference between dependent and independent events.
Sierra Rayne writes at American Thinker:
Here’s a novel concept for climate alarmists and journalists (and particularly the combination thereof). The odds of any one month being hotter or cooler than ‘normal’ (nevermind a rigorous discussion of what a ‘normal’ climate really is) is not an independent event. It is a dependent event, and it depends on the previous months, because the planet (and all its climate sub-regions) goes through cycles (having various lengths, magnitudes, areal extents, etc.) of warm and cool periods. That is basic science and statistics.
