This Year's Model

Climate science is not completely dependent on climate models. There are many threads of supporting evidence. Still, it is clear that climate models are telling us something important that we cannot afford to ignore.

This is quite impressive, excellent. I enjoyed both of yours so far. Fantastic!

Welcome, Peter, to DeSmog. I’ve been enjoying your Crock of the Week presentations for some time.. Well done!

I also recently tackled climate models at One Blue Marble… http://one-blue-marble.com/blog/2009/05/18/climate-models-the-unvarnished-truth/

My science is this:

All Human beings are essentially selfish and self promoting. It takes time to do up little videos like this and as we know Time=Money.

I am the scientist who has arrived at this truth over 46 years of observing humanity. Everyone of them is bad. Even the seemingly angelic Pete.

Which means, of course, that California is in for another dry year. Melting snowpack provides water to streams and rivers and replenishes reservoirs that are used for drinking water and agriculture.

In a cruel irony, a dry year...
