In scanning the Internet, we noted that Undersecretary of State for Global Affairs, Tim Wirth, expressed a certain skepticism about models. Not climate models, of course; he's willing to accept those, even though the actual observations show them to be incorrect. He is against the economic models that predict huge losses for jobs and the economy from any attempt to roll back the emission of carbon dioxide by curtailing energy use. He is quoted to have said, rather incoherently: "Anybody who believes that an economic model is going to be able to predict to points of percentage increase or decrease, I'd raise your eyebrows or take a deep breath or . . . look at what those people are smoking." It is curious that the administration downplays the utility of economic models to forecast cost impacts 10 to 15 years from now, but accepts as gospel the 50 to 100 year predictions of global warming from flawed climate models.
