Lack of computing power ‘hindering weather forecasting’

Hmm, the UK Met Office has a £30 million Super Computer (with a massive carbon bigfoot) and they claim that a lack of computing power is ‘hindering weather forecasting’. Garbage in, Garbage out boys! They’ll just get to the wrong forecast even faster he he he.

Maybe Piers Corbyn, the man who repeatedly beats the Met Office at its own game, can donate his laptop to the Met Office. He clearly beats them hands down when it comes to weather forecasting and his laptop has a much smaller carbon footprint too!

Via the BBC, 26 October 2011

A lack of computing power is limiting the improvements the Met Office can make to the accuracy of its weather forecasts, MPs have been told.

Prof Paul Hardaker, head of the Royal Meteorological Society, was speaking to the Commons science committee.

He said more supercomputers were needed to carry out complex calculations, but finding the money was “an issue”.

Via The Telegraph, 27 Aug 2009

Here is a rundown of the Met Office super computer by numbers:

:: The £30 million computer – more powerful than 100,000 standard PCs – was installed in the Met Office’s new £80 million headquarters in May.

:: It is capable of 1,000 billion calculations every second to feed data to 400 scientists.

:: The computer uses 1.2 megawatts of energy to run – enough to power a small town.

The Delinquent Teenager Who Was Mistaken for the World’s Top Climate Expert

New book by Donna Laframboise

Almost nothing we’ve been told about the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is true.

The UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change writes a report informally known as the Climate Bible. Cited by governments around the world, this report is the reason carbon taxes are being introduced, heating bills are rising, and costly new regulations are being imposed. It is why everyone thinks carbon dioxide emissions are dangerous.

But rather than being written by a meticulous, upstanding professional in business attire (aka the world’s top scientists & best experts), the Climate Bible is produced by a slapdash, slovenly teenager who has trouble distinguishing right from wrong (aka, activists, 20-something graduate students, people appointed due to their gender or their country).

The world needs to confront the folly that is the IPCC.

Armed Troops Burn Down Homes, Kill Children To Evict Ugandans In Name Of Global Warming

Prison Planet
September 23, 2011

Neo-colonial land grabs carried out on behalf of World Bank-backed British company

Armed troops acting on behalf of a British carbon trading company backed by the World Bank burned houses to the ground and killed children to evict Ugandans from their homes in the name of seizing land to protect against “global warming,” a shocking illustration of how the climate change con is a barbarian form of neo-colonialism.

The evictions were ordered by New Forests Company, an outfit that seizes land in Africa to grow trees then sells the “carbon credits” on to transnational corporations. The company is backed by the World Bank and HSBC. Its Board of Directors includes HSBC Managing Director Sajjad Sabur, as well as other former Goldman Sachs investment bankers.
