Do Climate Projections Have Any Physical Meaning?

Guest essay by Pat Frank This essay expands on a point made in a previous post here at WUWT, that climate models do not produce a unique solution to the energy state of the climate. Unique solutions are the source of physical meaning in science, and make a physical theory both predictive and falsifiable. Predictive…

Study: Another failure of climate models – they can’t handle barometric pressure change

One of the most basic meteorological factors isn’t handled by climate models – and they run off in a “hockey stick” style. From the UNIVERSITY OF LINCOLN Climate models fail to simulate recent air-pressure changes over Greenland Climatologists may be unable to accurately predict regional climate change over the North Atlantic because computer model simulations have…
