Obama Admin To Spend $18 Million To Develop “Reliable” Climate Change Predictions

We need reliable climate change models

As if the global warming, I mean climate change, scare isn't steeped in enough propaganda, the Obama administration is going to spend an additional $18 million on "reliable regional and decadal climate predictions."

Okay, what happened to the previous several decades of reports that have resulted in dire predictions of rising oceans, the insurmountable restrictions of coal fire power plants, more expensive cars because of the pollution and gas mileage restrictions put on car manufacturers? Have we not already spent billions on studies and climate change research organizations and have altered the way we live our lives and now were being told we need to spend millions more because the models scientists aren't reliable enough?

If the "science is settled" as Al Gore and liberals like to say any time anyone even remotely questions so-called climate change, which used to be called global warming until we found the planet hasn't really been warming for the last 20 years or so, then why do we still need more "reliable" models?

If the science is settled, then it is settled. If the methods used to "settle the science" are reliable, then they are reliable. Except when they aren't.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture have plans to spend up to $18 million over the next five years to develop “reliable” climate change predictions for the next few decades.

The “funding opportunity enables interagency cooperation on one of the most pressing problems of the millennium: climate change and how it is likely to affect our world,” according to NSF’s official request for bids.

“This solicitation is intended to support development of reliable regional and decadal climate predictions that take into account the influences of living systems and are essential for projecting how living systems might adapt to climate change and its consequences for their physical environment,” the program solicitation explains.

Current methods of predicting future climate change have proved to be wildly inaccurate. For example, none of the 73 computer models used by the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) predicted that there would be no statistically significant global warming for the past 17 years as determined by actual temperature records stored in five different databases worldwide.
