Michael Mann Admits Limitations of Climate Modeling

One of the best sources of relatively unbiased information on climate forcings is the Climate Science blog run by climatologist Roger Pielke Sr. In this posting, Pielke quotes prima donna climate star Michael Mann admitting some of the limitations of climate modeling, among other things.
Mike Mann’s conclusion therefore also applies to our current inability to skillfully predict the multi-decadal regional climate in response to these forcings (or using Mike Mann’s wording “remain of somewhat limited utility”), and through teleconnections, the global climate response.

We could use a lot more candidness from those who are living well off the myth of the multi-decadal predictability of climate. "There's a sucker born every minute" as PT Barnum was supposed to have said. And as WC Fields used to say, "Never give a sucker an even break." Climate empresarios and political climate hard-asses appear to be living by those credos. Michael Mann is hauling in the grant money right now. If he isn't careful what he admits, his grant money will dry faster than the Caspian Sea.

Other good sources of unreported but important information on the antics of the reigning clowns of climate science include Climate Audit, Warwick Hughes, and the many sites linked to by those sites.
