Climate Sciene: The State of the Art

Here is an interview with Brian Hoskins, a climatologist with the Imperial College, London, interviewed by The Economist:

This is interesting because he does take a step back from the "science is settled" crowd and does admit to the "group think" going on in climate science. Notice that he says that climate models are "pretty lousy" and he talks about how models as they were made higher and higher resolution got better and then got worse which showed that they didn't understand something fundamental. When asked if that has been fixed, he evades giving a straight answer. In short, they haven't fixed it.
