A Nobel pursuit

Climate modeller Gavin Schmidt, director of NASA GISS, writes about the life work of the 2 climatologists who were awarded the Nobel Prize for their pioneering modelling work: Suki Manabe and Klaus Hasselmann.

A worthwhile quite technical piece.

"Hasselmann’s statement that he would rather have “no global warming and no Nobel Prize” captures the ambiguity that many of us feel in successfully predicting events and trends that we don’t want to come true."
