Comment what could possibly go wrong (Score -1, Troll) 292

Climate Scientists (the honest ones anyway) will admit that they still don't quite know how all the climate ingredients fit together, new climate drivers are still being uncovered. Adding a 'solution' to 'problem' that isn't fully understood will only produce disaster.

Maybe a couple honest skeptics will get to see this post before the bed-wetting alarmist sheep mod it down the memory hole.

Numeric stability is probably not all that important when you're guessing.
