I rode my bike up to NCAR yesterday (like I do every day) where scientists are hard at work protecting us from global warming. Tonight, Dr. Richard Loft will be speaking about “The Limits Of Modeling Our Planet.”
Rich is a computer scientist, and I used to work with him to accelerate NCAR’s weather and climate models. He is always working to find ways to speed up NCAR’s computing capabilities. Tonight I will get the chance to point out that no matter how fast the hardware is, the limits of climate modeling are the quality of the software.
