Climate Models Scientifically Flawed

You can learn a lot from ‘models’, but you cannot learn what’s going to happen 10 years from now.”

Whenever I look at the idea of climate change I always read what Freeman Dyson has to say on the subject, for two reasons. One, he doesn’t have a degree in climate science and two, he has a broad general knowledge of physics and is not confined to a tunnel vision approach to the planet.
Dyson maintains that the army of climate scientists who spend their careers working on climatic dooms-day scenarios are flat-out wrong.

We are living in a CO2 drought.

He points out that in times past on planet Earth, vegetation was much bigger and more abundant because there was more CO2 in the atmosphere which is what plants require. The atmosphere was also much warmer then.

“The whole livelihood of all these people depends on people being scared.”

When Freeman was asked what he thought of climate scientists and the models they are creating, he had this to say..

“I mean it’s a fact that they don’t know how to model it. And the question is, how does it happen that they end up believing their models? But I have seen that happen in many fields. You sit in front of a computer screen for 10 years and you start to think of your model as being real. It is also true that the whole livelihood of all these people depends on people being scared. Really, just psychologically, it would be very difficult for them to come out and say, “Don’t worry, there isn’t a problem.” It’s sort of natural, since their whole life depends on it being a problem. I don’t say that they’re dishonest. But I think it’s just a normal human reaction.”

“Anything that looks bad is reported, and anything that looks good is not reported.”


Looking at the climate change models from this psychological point of view answers a lot of questions. The constant reinforcing of a negative model will keep one in a job and provide one with a peer group who will support the theory right across the academic spectrum, simply because their jobs rely on it being so.
This snowballing of negativity is what the whole climate change modelling phenomenon is based upon. Someone from outside the field like Dyson who has a remarkable head on his shoulders is a much safer bet to go by than a fraternity with personal agendas in play.

Freeman Dyson was in cohorts with Albert Einstein in his younger days, it would be interesting indeed to know what Albert would make of climate scientists and the doomsday models they are producing.
