#1 if they're using the NYT archives, you can also be 99% sure that Republicans are at fault.

#2 Rantburg predictions are within least two standard deviations of certainty.

The scientists using the NYT, how many sigma certainty are their predictions? How to lie with Statistics.

#5 Alaska Paul,

I was taught in my very first Statistics course some 44 years ago that there are 3 classifications of Statistics:
1) Lies, damn lies and statistics
2) Figures don't lie, liars figure
3) Garbage in, garbage out.

Keep that trinity in mind and always demand to see the data and the alogrithms used to manipulate it.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
