Note: Now those skeptics amongst you may already have picked up that, following Prof Phil "hide the decline" Jones et al (1996), I have made the data fit the model in so far as the nifty little count down timer shown above. You see there are not enough digits to show more than 999 days so until sometime in 2011 the number of days to go until the earth spontaneously combusts will be truncated in the "tens" column - at least until I find a better countdown timer. Lets not worry too much about that however as, in the words of one famous climate scientist "all the errors will cancel themselves out" and it would be a "travesty" that I can't display my nifty timer just because it is going to be BS until 2011. I'm not sure if that methodology came from a peer reviewed article so care should be exercised in its use.
Well 2 days have passed since Penny predicted the end of the world as we know it, it is already the 6 December as I write this, and the earth is not a disaster yet. I predict that on 4 December 2014 as people are planning their Christmas shopping it will be business as usual for the rest of us while Penny is hiding out in her survival bunker with a few thousand cans of beans.
