Attacks on stupidity

27 May 2005
A few years ago, a team at the Massachussetts Institute of Technology developed a climate change roulette wheel (here) which helps to communicate uncertainty around climate prediction.

Analysis has moved on some way since then, but the roulette wheel analogy remains a good tool to help understanding (supplemented by such innovations as climate sceptics bingo).

Now Friends of the Earth has developed an upside version - a climate lottery in which you can win money, and if you don't the money goes to support their Big Ask campaign.

The question you have to ask yourself is: do you feel lucky, punk?
