It's Chimp v. U.S. Government in Hurricane Prediction Battle of the Titans

The National Center for Public Policy Research wants to make the point that climate science is in its infancy, so it makes little sense for Congress to adopt hugely-expensive cap-and-trade policies based upon it.

If NOAA's prediction turns out to be more accurate than the one by "Dr. Hansimian" (actually a movie chimp named Kenzie), the National Center says, the Center will post a prominent mea culpa on its website. If Dr. Hansimian's prediction is better, it challenges NOAA to make the chimp an honorary member of its hurricane forecasting team.
