Obama Supporters on Climate Bill Costs: No Thanks! - Peter Schiff
But when he asked about the issue on a more personal level -- whether their families often talk about climate change, whether they're personally taking actions to prevent climate change, or whether they would be willing to pay more in taxes or more for gas & electricity to help finance the eventual legislation -- their enthusiasm quickly evaporated.

THE HOCKEY SCHTICK: New paper finds why weather & climate models are so often wrong
"Fluid dynamics expert and engineering professor Julie Crockett has figured out why the weatherman is so often wrong. According to Crockett, forecasters make mistakes because the models they use for predicting weather can't accurately track highly influential elements called internal waves." "Internal waves are difficult to capture and quantify as they propagate, deposit energy and move energy around," Crockett said. "When forecasters don't account for them on a small scale, then the large scale picture becomes a little bit off, and sometimes being just a bit off is enough to be completely wrong about the weather." Note climate models are the same computer models used by weather forecasters, only run for longer periods of time. If short term weather cannot be reliably predicted, long term climate change projections are exponentially more uncertain.
