Rebuttal: 'I am going to apply the same math to the ice age scare of the 1970s. In 1974, the CIA reported that Eastern Canada had been below normal for 19 months in a row. The odds of being below normal are one out of two. So if we raise two to the 19th power, we can conclude that the global cooling of the 1970s was a one in 524,288 event, colder than the last three or four ice ages! No wonder Hansen had to erase it! These folks are dumber than a sack of rocks'
