Global warming skeptic backs himself by $6000 over 20 years

Global warming skeptics ready to put up or shut up, that's what I like to see. You have to give it to David Evans, a few professional denialists have refused to take bets to back their positions (Lord Gilbert Monckton, 2nd Viscount Monckton of Brenchley comes to mind). Evans, formerly with the Australian Greenhouse Office, has, but he will lose a lot more than $6,000 in 20 years, if he loses.

He would have lost the opportunity to mitigate against 20 years of carbon dioxide emissions. Hey, that's our money he is playing with...
