The Models Aren't Perfect?

What do you know…the global climate models suck (and they say Medicine lags behind as a true science). Whoops, Antarctica doesn’t warm as the vast majority of models predict.

[Antarctic T]emperatures during the late 20th century did not climb as had been predicted by many global climate models.

This comes soon after the latest report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change that strongly supports the conclusion that the Earth’s climate as a whole is warming, largely due to human activity.

It also follows a similar finding from last summer by the same research group that showed no increase in precipitation over Antarctica in the last 50 years. Most models predict that both precipitation and temperature will increase over Antarctica with a warming of the planet.

The lead author, David Bromwich, paints a pretty even keeled, unbiased picture,

“It’s hard to see a global warming signal from the mainland of Antarctica right now,” he said. “Part of the reason is that there is a lot of variability there. It’s very hard in these polar latitudes to demonstrate a global warming signal. This is in marked contrast to the northern tip of the Antarctic Peninsula that is one of the most rapidly warming parts of the Earth.”

Bromwich said the disagreement between climate model predictions and the snowfall and temperature records doesn’t necessarily mean that the models are wrong.

“It isn’t surprising that these models are not doing as well in these remote parts of the world. These are global models and shouldn’t be expected to be equally exact for all locations,” he said.

These models are from perfect. Most are so far off base at times the general public would be shocked if they saw the actual figures that IPCC Scare Report was based off of. And the climatologists go, “And that is they shouldn’t see them! We’re scientists we can gleam valid evidence from these invalid models!”
