Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In the words of Pontius Pilate "Quid est veritum?"  I always thought his status as a moral philosopher was neglected.

I must agree with you about the final "truth" of any predictions from climate models.  When a back of the envelope calculation about the neglected effects of bovid flatulence can even putatively have a noticeable effect on the outcomes we must wonder how well we have even accounted for the system inputs.  Unfortunately, this makes me more, not less, concerned about our future, given what we do know about CO2 levels and average ambient temperatures from the geological record and from ice core studies.
