A Stable Climate?

Philip Stott points out another wonderful example of the certainty of belief in global warming. In this example James Cameron calls for the push for a "stable climate" not to be de-railed by the current global economic fiasco.

As Stott points out, "stable climate" is as good an example of an oxymoron as you are likely to find.

Put another way, a colleague recently suggested that "climate" is what we like to predict, while the "weather" is what we get!
