Our friends at Daily Kos report that the global warming models that were believed to be true by most scientists are likely wrong.
The world’s climate experts have long been making some very dire predictions about Global Warming. Because they are predictions, they rely very heavily on computer models.
Many people– especially conservatives– warned about this. They pointed out that models are prone to many errors, and the scientific consensus is not always right.
Other people chose to rely on the scientific consensus. Honesty compels me to admit that I was in this group. We didn’t think think the consensus was the last word, but we did believe it was the best window to the future a non-specialist could look through.
The consensus of climate experts were wrong. Absolutely, verifiably wrong. The computer models were wrong. They simply do not match reality.
It’s almost like the scientists overlooked something, another factor somewhere…
Daily Kos doesn’t mention the Pastafarian theory of Global Warming, but the article is worth reading, anyway: here.
