The Great Hypotheses Scam

Wherein: Climate models which are nothing more than hypothesis are used to generate studies of future events, which are unmeasurable and unverifiable. Also known as CYBER WAG (Computer generated Wild Ass Guesses)

(Editor):Here is an example from the past brought to our attention by Real Science

Is Colorado’s Ski Industry Doomed Due To Global Warming?

...A downscaled climate model was run on a regional scale for the eight-state Rocky Mountain region to see the potential effects of global warming in the Rockies, using data from 1961-1990, and projecting future trends from 2070 to 2099. The climate model generated the temperature, amount of precipitation and depth of snowpack at each of more than 15,000 data points evenly distributed throughout the eight-state region.

The climate-trend model shows that in every eco-region, springtime snowpack decreases by at least 37 percent, and in 14 eco-regions, snowpack decreases by more than 70 percent, which would have devastating effects on ski areas in the region....
