Given that computer models are used to forecast the short, medium, and long term weather, this give me pause and makes me skeptical of those forecast and their use to predict man-made global warming. First, short term forecast are eradicate in their accuracy at best and have forecast many more rain events this summer then actually happened. Two, if the medium and the long term forecast models are so great why didnâ?™t they predict this yearâ?™s drought in advance rather than after the fact. Yet, it seems climatologists can predict global warming using these models and determine that it is man-made but they canâ?™t predict a simple drought six months in advance.
