Betting on Warming or Cooling

Which way would you bet?
The scientists who maintain the blog have offered a climate wager to the research team from Germany that recently predicted a short pause in global warming (along with some North American and European cooling).

Here’s how the Realclimate bloggers set up the bet:

The bet we propose is very simple and concerns the specific global prediction in their Nature article. If the average temperature 2000-2010 (their first forecast) really turns out to be lower or equal to the average temperature 1994-2004 (*), we will pay them € 2500. If it turns out to be warmer, they pay us € 2500.
What would you bet?

By 2050 or so, the world population is expected to reach nine billion, essentially adding two Chinas to the number of people alive today.
