Charlie Martin on those global warmists who have been caught fudging their work:
"Simply put, scientists aren’t software engineers. They don’t keep their code in nice packages and they tend to use whatever language they’re comfortable with."
While possibly true, it's not right.
If a scientist is basing his findings on computer models and not on empirical data, that scientist sure as hell had better be both a statistician and a code expert ("software engineer").
Otherwise, he's quickly muddled in a morass of meaningless muck.
Oh, wait. I think we've just pegged the problem with all this global warming nonsense. It's not necessarily a matter of villainous intentions. It's the fact that these geniuses didn't know what they were doing.
Unqualified amateurs. My God.
