What I need from climate science

Enough already with the global numbers. I get it. What I need from you smarty-pants climate scientists is better regional-scale modeling. Which is the point of this piece by Fred Pearce:

“POLITICIANS seem to think that the science is a done deal,” says Tim Palmer. “I don’t want to undermine the IPCC, but the forecasts, especially for regional climate change, are immensely uncertain.”

  1. And the IPCC is listening, but the price for smaller scale models is a shorter time frame and fewer runs. OTOH only running the models out to 2035 is probably more than the politicians need given their 2-4 year time horizon.
