Climate models’ predictions falling outside acceptable scientific boundaries

A recent analysis of climate models shows they are falling outside acceptable scientific limits.

A recent analysis of climate models shows they are falling outside acceptable scientific limits.

Last month former vice president Al Gore made a well publicized appearance before a Senate committee warning of the dangers of global warming.  Lesser known is the appearance of a climatologist before a House subcommittee two weeks later that called into question the models on which anthropogenic [manmade] global warming advocates use to base their assertions on. 

Dr. Patrick J. Michaels is a research professor of environmental services at the University of Virginia and a Senior Fellow at the Cato Institute.  He is a climatologist with impeccable credentials.  Dr. Michaels holds A.B. and S.M. degrees in biological sciences and plant ecology and holds a Ph.D. in ecological climatology.  In the past he has served as president of the American Association of State Climatologists and was program chair for the Committee on Applied Climatology of the American Meteorological Society (AMS).  He also is an active participant in the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

We include his resume as it is significant because it shows that this is someone with a deep background in climatology and a wealth of experience.  When someone of this caliber discusses climate change and anthropogenic global warming we can and should take notice. 

In testimony to the U.S. House of Representatives Subcommittee on Energy and Environment, Dr. Michaels testified on the little known fact that the scientific models used to predict global warming are starting to fall outside acceptable scientific limits.  They have been unable to accurately predict temperature increases and when used to model historical increases, they fail as well. 

This is a fascinating story.  Be sure to get the rest of it on Examiner.com.
