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!
