    I like that iwog is posting his moves in real time, and he's done very well. But in this case, it seems to me that iwog has gotten lucky for long enough that he is overconfident in his predictions. Going all out to time a short term dip is a pretty cocky move considering his 2 year predictions. So, it seems to me that iwog may be setting himself up for a big mistake somewhere in the not too distant future.

    On the other hand, most of the people who really are hot and bothered by iwog's predictions have been failing pretty miserably to make any decent comments for the last 5 years.

    Saying people are stupid is kind of a humble brag way of saying I'm smarter than the rest. Obviously the average person is not stupid. They are of average intelligence.

    That being said, people are uninformed. Anyone in politics sees how political advertising goes. If that shit works, people are at the least, easily manipulated. Further, people selling some political idea lie lie lie. It's crazy what people go for.

    Climate scientist need it to say it was hotter this year, then take more hot climate readings. Boom there you go, instant increase in the average. Need it colder, take more temp readings in the cold regions.

    Are you really so jaded? Scientists look at data collected from the same locations over many years to remove those issues. They also take account for heat island issues due to increased paving, dark surfaces, and lack of transpiration from plant matter. Otherwise, you would see a false warming due to cities getting warmer than they otherwise would be. There are some corrupt scientists just like in any other fields, but as a whole, people try to be as objective as possible. If they aren't someone else will cut their teeth proving the first person wrong.
