Open Letter to U.S. Senators Ted Cruz, James Inhofe and Marco Rubio

Excellent post by Bob Tisdale that covers the key questions that need answering in the funding of climate research. One point that no sane person could argue with:

No private corporation would survive based on the abysmal return on investment offered by the current climate models. Worse, governments everywhere are squandering resources that would be better spent on adapting in practical ways to the climate change that we can see all around us today.

I have a few very basic questions for you about climate model-based science. They are:

  • Why are taxpayers funding climate model-based research when those models are not simulating Earth’s climate?
  • Why are taxpayers funding climate model-based research when each new generation of climate models…
