Long story, but I do know a little bit about statistical data modeling — the principal approach used by the main cast of characters in Climategate — and have a decent understanding of their basic research paradigm.

The goal here is to share that understanding with interested laypeople. I’m also a big believer in learning by doing; if you really want to know how a carburetor works, nothing beats taking one apart and rebuilding it. That same rule applies to climate models. And so I decided to put together this simple step-by-step rebuilder’s manual.  

Regardless of what side you’ve chosen in the climate debate (I’m not going to pretend that I’m anything but a crazed pro-carbon extremist) I hope this will give you a nuts-and-bolts understanding of what climate modeling is about, as well as give some context to the Climategate emails.

Got 30 to 60 minutes, a modest amount of math and computer skills, and curiosity? Read on.

Antallet af sagførere for diverse islam-organisationer må snart udvides betragteligt for at følge med.

Efterhånden bliver Gud og hvermand sagsøgt for at sige en eller flere sandheder om Fredens Religion™. Også i USA har man en paraply-dækorganisation for “Det Islamiske Broderskab” – her kalder de sig CAIR. De har efterhånden sagsøgt enhver med mere end to fungerende hjerneceller. Nu har de også kastet sig over en kristen evangelist – sønnen af den navnkundige Billy Graham. Selv om vækkelsesprædikanter ikke lige er vor kop øl, fremtræder Franklin Graham dog ganske fornuftig og sympatisk i det følgende interview med en af de sædvanlige fiseletter som også CNN åbenbart mener hører sig til på en TV-skærm. Gåsen refererer til selveste Hussein Oh-bama, som – igen – har sagt, at islam er en fredelig religion(!) . Men den køber færre og færre, selv ikke en jubel-kristen:

“…we have many Muslims that live in this country. But true Islam cannot be practiced in this country. You can’t beat your wife. You cannot murder your children if you think they’ve committed adultery or something like that, which they do practice in these other countries…I don’t agree with the teachings of Islam and I find it to be a very violent religion.”
