I think that is a very poor

I think that is a very poor analogy.

For example, let us say that you are a smoker. Can I tell you with a very high confidence how that habit will affect you on a given day? No. Maybe some days, when you need to calm down, you'll be happy you are a smorker.

But I can make general statements about your quality of life many years down the line. That you would very likely be better off not smoking, than smoking.

That is the more accurate analogy. Day-to-day temperature fluctuations are very high, but overtime, these flucuations tend to average out and give a clear signal.
