There are so many things wrong with making promises about the weather, I don't even know where to begin. The recent meeting of the G-8 industrial nations included environmental issues. The group promised to prevent the global temperature from rising more than two degrees Celsius. They did not make any firm short-term goals, but plan on cutting carbon emissions 80% by the year 2050. As astonishing of a task that would be, guaranteeing the weather is a little arrogant and very dangerous. Trust me when I say dangerous. I am a TV forecaster with a science degree, and I know that the atmosphere is a chaotic system. We don't know everything. My colleagues and I take enough ridicule with daily or weekly thundershower forecasts, so how can a 40-decade forecast be done with a straight face? Besides, how much do you trust the seven day forecast?
Another problem with this claim is that there is some proof that the planet has been cooling for much of the past decade. Perhaps the G-8 leaders will try to take credit for the cooling in the near future, but according to some sources, the planet stopped warming in 1998 and has shown distinct cooling this decade.
