  •  No, the IPCC's models may fail still again (0+ / 0-)

    As they have in the recent past dozen years or so. They've often underestimated the worst case scenarios with melting they predicted to happen 1/2 way through the century or at the end of it with actual warming blowing by their predictions already.

    I always mention these failures to deniers (and tell them to look them up themselves) when they say the threat of global warming are overblown or a hoax. Did their sources ever make claims beforehand that IPCC'S models were too aggressively unlikely? If so, they were wrong also, weren't they? Did their side make more aggressive claims? Of course they didn't, they said everything was fine and if they thought that IPCC'S models were not aggressive enough early deniers would have said the IPCC's predictions were too lax.

    Oh wait, that wouldn't have been denial, would it? No one saw the change coming so fast.
