What's the higher order stats--skewness, kurtosis. Plus who knows much about the underlying distribution. Here, in Iowa, noteworthy for changeable weather, we can get a morning very warm, and an afternoon from another distribution, a front goes through. So the high can be from Mars; the low from Venus lets say. Doesn't even make sense to average them then. And tree rings don't even show high or low, and not the winter.

In October one of the main culprits in the global warming hoax published new data that undermines their own theory of global warming. The UK’s MET Office, more formally called the UK's National Weather Service, updated global temperatures for 2012 and the new dataset shows that an “unlikely” event has occurred, according to their own models: Global warming has been halted for 15 years and counting.

While the MET Office accused critics of cherry-picking a starting point and nitpicked about language-for example the Daily Mail reported that the “Met Office report [was] quietly released,” while the Met office whined they just...
