I think the lesson of this summer is that long-range climatology is a lot less of an exact science than many in the field will admit to (BTW, that includes me..).  Especially in the Northwest!

I'm still very pleased it was not a fire-plagued summer, but I am worried that without some change of land management practices (e.g. more controlled burns on the west side of the Cascades, a resumption of REASONABLE timber harvesting) we'll face a future really BIG fire on the west side that will devastate a lot of towns and cities (Maple Valley anyone?  Snoqualmie Ridge?) due to reduced property setbacks and poor risk management in land use and zoning. 

Just sayin...

But the bigger issue is why you felt it necessary to dig up a two month old long dead thread

Because it is funny watching you squirm to try and excuse your obvious mistakes.

And also, more importantly, it is a good lesson: those who scream loudest about the "climate crisis" are usually wrong.

Often true for both sides of most debates.

It's interesting that the result is not an admission that there was error, but complaining about raising the visibility of that error.

This is the symptomatic of judgment processes oriented towards winning as opposed to finding truth.

I read it more as calling into question the meta judgment that was made about having been willing to share a prediction with the group based on info available at the time. A continuation of a broader feud.

It would have been more interesting and constructive for him to have shared a counter prediction and the thoughts and data behind it back near the start of the thread rather than Monday morning quarterbacking with the look of a personal attack

I agree, you scream the loudest.

An ironic contention.

You and head invaded the main forum for some vengeance related reason and refuse to let it drop. That is ironic in the true sense of the word.

Apparently you don't know what irony means. I haven't even visited the "Climate change" thread in the Stewardship forum for many months because the three of you keep reopening that thread, re-inforcing one another. And then someone shoots down your opinions with fact. But it is pointless to me to bring up science when you ignore it or keep re bringing up some inane long shot down "argument". The three of you could go on forever with this ridiculous charade.
