How The GISS Temperature Adjustments Work

With four parameters I can fit an elephant, and with five I can make him wiggle his trunk.

    John von Neumann only had a very basic computer model. With today’s computing power we can make the elephant do anything – sun, snow, rain, lightning, anything !

    ROTFLMAO! You cannot make this stuff up. Parody is now an impossible task!

      Funnier is SFU Strategic Vision that is “Simon Fraser University – Engaging the World”. On the basis of this report there’s not a lot of need really.

      I particularly liked the line:

      Once a threshold-induced planetary state shift occurs, there’s no going back.

      No indeed! Not unless you’ve got a time machine.

    How do you explain the big climate change that took place 12,000 years ago, before evil humans became a factor? Yes, maybe we should send them back 15,000 in a time machine so they can see mile thick ice sheets down to Chicago, without miserable humanity to blame.
