Tomorrow’s Memes Today

leave a comment »

It’s not often that you can catch tomorrow’s memes being born today, but here’s one—a study which claims climate is too complex to be precisely modeled that will undoubtedly wind up a favorite in the global warming denialist’s toolbox. You can see how these things happen even in the misleading headline; the study’s claim that climate models “can never give a precise prediction” of future climate conditions slips to “too complex for accurate prediction.” Precise and accurate don’t mean the same thing—not that it will matter in a few months when deniers start lecturing us about how science proved you can’t predict the weather.
