Surprise: “More Accurate” Climate Model Projects Worse Doom

Funny how things always get more and more doomy with this cult, eh?

More accurate climate change model reveals bleaker outlook on electricity, water use

By 2030, global warming alone could push Chicago to generate 12% more electricity per person each month of the summer.

If the city generated any less electricity, it would be risking a power shortage that may require drastic measures to avoid rolling blackouts, according to projections from a model designed by Purdue University researchers.

That estimated increase is larger than previous projections because it takes into account how consumers use electricity and water at the same time. The model also considers a wider range of climate features that affect this mixed use, such as humidity and wind speed, making predictions more accurate. (snip)

In a study published Thursday (March 5) in the journal Climatic Change, the collaborative team applied this model to five other cities in the U.S. Midwest: Cleveland; Columbus, Ohio; Indianapolis; Madison, Wisconsin; and Minneapolis.

As a whole, the model projected that the Midwest will be using 19% more electricity and 7% more water. And that’s just during the summer.

So, doom? Anyhow, the “model” looked at this and that and some more, all in order to prognosticate doom

The model uses artificial intelligence to make predictions on climate change impact. As a learning algorithm, the model is fed years of data from a region’s utilities and weather services and then trained to predict changes in electricity and water use given certain climate-change scenarios.

These scenarios are when the earth’s temperature increases by 1.5 or 2.0 degrees Celsius above its mean temperature during the pre-industrial period, approximately 1881-1910.

    Considering that none of their predictions thus far have happened, I will forego the panicking.

    So does this mean the previous “predictions” are all wrong?
