Andrew Freedman Still Having Trouble With Statistics

@afreedma: Chart that speaks volumes re: extreme weather in US this yr: 82% of country affected by extreme max temperatures. http://1.usa.gov/Kapor3

First problem is that mild springtime weather is not extreme, and second is that there is no trend. In statistics people often throw out outliers. If Andrew was in the UK right now he probably wouldn’t be complaining about mild daytime temperatures.

    Those people in Michigan are still recovering from that extreme 80 degree weather that suffered thru last March. All kinds of pulled muscles from early golf, tennis, bicycling, etc. They just can’t handle nice weather in March.

    According to Piers Corbyn extreme solar events can knock the jetstreams around so in times of low solar activity they tend to stay in place for longer (if I have understood him correctly). That could explain all the blocking weather patterns very well.
