Dr Glen Peters, research director at CICERO in Norway, tells Carbon Brief:

"With the benefit of hindsight, the 'new scenario framework' (SSP/RCPs) did not function as planned. The integration between climate models and IAMs (RCPs and SSPs) never really happened; the RCPs were only intended to be a short-cut, and merged with SSPs back in 2012, but it is 2019 and we are only now seeing integration, albeit somewhat limited. At this point I think only a vanishingly small number of modellers on both climate and energy understand the background on why SSPs and RCPs were even developed, and that has led to deep misunderstandings.

"The RCPs have served the climate modelling community well, they have had consistent pathways to run and compare their models. With the RCPs, the need for the IAM community is essentially gone, and therefore much of the diversity and nuance from IAMs happens in a parallel literature."

It did not happen and at last someone is admitting it.Carbon brief still claim its warming and we will all die soon

Just to let you know, I put "climate models" in the same category with UFOs, Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster and the chupacabra. The only examples anyone will show me are small, blurry pictures that look eerily similar to ink-blot tests.

Nobody in the history of humanity has ever unambiguously defined "the global climate" ... which is absolutely required in order to create a computer program to emulate such. Fables and myths concerning "Climate models" are concocted to perpetuate the belief that there are such things as "climate models," that the global climate has somehow been unambiguously defined and that it really is a thing and not a hoax.

I'm not buying it. All of the above that you quoted is simply bullshit. The goal is not to justify procedures involving "climate models." The goal is to popularize the belief that there actually are such things.

Marxists will gladly feign a "mia culpa" if it will fool you into legitimizing the concept of "climate models." Then they can just pull out new "models" and you will then be required to believe whatever they tell you. You will have legitimized whatever they decide to fabricate.

I'm not going to be party to that.

IB STILL hasn't explained what Planck's Law means. Just more hand waving that it applies to everything and more asserting that the greenhouse effect 'violates' it.- Ceist

The models they use with weather predictions, are probably some of the oldest, and best examples of what can be expected out of that technology. They are a tool, and they can help, but they also get it wrong quite often. They can predict the path of a storm, and intensity, but not always the hour, or even day. Those storms can also fizzle, before the arrive, and a whole lot of nothing, not even a drop of rain. The location of the area expected to be hardest hit, isn't all that accurate either. The weather models have been in the works, since there were computers to run them. The predictions, and the actual results can be compared very quickly, and often. I can't imagine how anyone could truly believe that climate models are exponentially better, than our current weather models, which aren't that reliable. I suppose for most places, the weather isn't of huge consequence, and easier to buy the accuracy. Here in Florida, we get a lot of extreme weather, and an early warning is greatly appreciated. The accuracy of those predictions are often very important, the failures are noteworthy.

A good analogy I read of the climate modelling was you build an aircraft and state it can fly 600 miles but it only flys 200 miles before running out of fuel.Is that acceptable??In the climate modelling world they just get more funding and say we will get it right next time and we have learned a lot.2016 apparently set all these high temperature records.The modelling only goes up but here we are 4 years later and its going down.Its all gone quiet on the western front regarding that blip

BAD analogy.

Aircraft are designed for a specific type of mission they fly. Their fuel capacity and their range is part of the design. There are no surprises here. There is no guesswork here.

Everything about any aircraft is from careful design. We aren't building tree houses here.

Just to keep the scam going.

The temperature of Earth is unknown. It is not possible to measure it.
