New paper finds climate models are unable to simulate effects of large volcanic eruptions

A paper published today in the Journal of Geophysical Research finds that current climate models are unable to simulate the climate following large volcanic eruptions, a major cause of natural climate variability.

According to the authors, the paper confirms others with the same findings and “raises concern for the ability of current climate models to simulate the response of a major mode of [climate change].”

The paper adds to many others showing current climate models are unable to model climate change due to natural changes in solar activity, ozone, ocean oscillations, volcanic eruptions, and clouds.

  1. One really should use some of these climate models to understand the problems in climate science….but do wash your hands afterward.

  2. It’s a fairly safe bet that climate models are unable to accurately simulate volcanic eruptions or ANY other effect that tends to cool the planet. The whole point of constructing the models is to affirm catastrophic anthropogenic global warming. Why would they accurately model any negative feedback mechanisms? Too risky. Might produce incorrect answers. Got to get the right output or the model is useless.
