Climate models have been and are extremely accurate:
No, we don't yet know how accurate climate models are. Climate models do not provide evidence , they provide hypotheses that must be checked against the climate record. There has been insufficient time elapsed to draw any conclusions about their accurcy.
|Hayduke: They have been verified. Many times. The real issue is which model to choose. For the most part, the models are more about what happens when we as a people decide to do anything. i.e. do we keep burning at a tremendous rate, or do we pull back to 1990 levels? etc.|
Check out our arctic circle;
As expected the arctic's heat is vastly higher than the world's average temperature. As predicted.
In days gone by (1991 ish) there was a contest to simulate what would happen if we suddenly released huge amounts of CO2 from 1 location. You got it.... It was Saddam lighting the oil fields on fire.
1 year later, they compared their predicted future of the mideast region, and the actual temperature changes.
More than half were spot on... the other half were off by a bit. (Some downright wrong.)
More to the point, all predicted the warming of the region, which then occurred.
I well and truly wish I could find any papers on it. What I saw was a military presentation.
