Bud, with such a lot of insincere trolls round, and with only text to offer us activates, its understandable that on occation one helps to keep swinging and reveals another poor sod on matlab end of one’s “pop”. I did some calcs and plots re Darwin which I published at WUWT. First was matlab corresponding GISS data:raw and homogeneity adjusted plots. And there’s very little adustment in any respect. Then matlab newly posted CRU data from this MetOffice site, which plotted towards raw confirmed this plot. Again, no big adjustment. Trivedi S. , Tiwari A. , Chatterjee A. , Pathak V. , Dhande S. G. It can be argued, therefore, that I agree with local weather science to be astrology, and that would not be engineering bad assumption. For me matlab fact is, even supposing they get EVERY parameter absolutely right, you cannot account for matlab things you can not are expecting, say volcanoes. At best, GCMs can give engineering loose type of tips, but not engineering real prediction engineering matlab future. I suspect that astrology can provide us with such similar, ‘certain’ consequences. Roy: Actually I am practically engineering matlab same frame of mind. I think your aspect about having matlab parameters right but nonetheless not being able to account for matlab matters you could’t predict is both accurate and very well put.
