Current predictions of climate change are based on simulations using global circulation models of the atmosphere. Without validation of the results of these models, we have no idea of whether or not their predicted climate changes will take place. Greater effort in determining the accuracy of the models is needed, given that they are the only method currently available to predict the impact of increased CO2 levels on the climate...
