Ask for the caution of computer modelers who advise the government
Baker’s warning was issued in the foreword to a new paper on some of the problems with climate models in recent years. He draws parallels with the apparent failure of epidemiological models during the Covid pandemic, and highlights recent studies suggesting that the latest climate models are incompatible with empirical observations of the climate.
Mr Baker said:
“The Net Zero target that is in place, largely following climate model predictions about what the future may hold, has implications for every human being on the planet living today and for billions who are still unborn. If we misunderstand this, humanity as a whole, now and in the future, will suffer the consequences. The situation can hardly be more serious. “
The paper, by GWPF’s Deputy Director Andrew Montford, gives a review in simple language, some of the major flaws of climate models, as revealed in the scientific literature.
Mr Montford said:
“Claims of a climate crisis rely almost entirely on climate model outputs. But once you know which climate models are wrong, it is difficult to take them seriously as any kind of guide for the future, no matter the government’s policy. “
