Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I do have the slightest idea. Probably more than anyone else here. In fact I am one of the coders of what is probably the biggest epidemiology project in existence. Which happens to be open source, BTW. So, not all is bad.

I also know some people involved in climate modeling software development.

SO I PRETTY DAMN WELL KNOW WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT.

But even if I did not knew anything I could make the following assertion:
Any political decision in an open society which is supported in a technical and scientific process should make that process open to the general public.

In this case it is possible. At least for some of the models that are used, I am pretty sure it is.

And, I personally could not care less that you are a "senior scientist". Please present rational arguments and not arguments of authority. I know what I am talking about from proven first hand experience, and you, why should we trust you?
