Climate Desk’s short video explains climate modeling
February 11th, 2013 by Susan Smith
Here in 90 seconds is Climate Desk’s attempt to explain something we interact with every day, in all sorts of ways, from flying in a plane, to getting a loan, to betting on a horse: computer modeling.
“Our video features Drew Purves, from Microsoft in Cambridge, UK, a statistics whiz specializing in modeling the climate and ecosystems. Think of him as the Nate Silver of carbon. You can read about his latest research project, a rallying cry to model the entire world’s ecology—that’s right, the entire world—in the latest edition of Nature.”–
