The Climate modelling community continually review their models - evaluating their accuracy against observation, as well as assessing the number of models and factors included in the experiments. This analysis focuses on the detail; tweaking and improving the system they have created from within. What they lack is a wider analysis, or a more fundamental inquiry into the nature and implications of the climate model systems; a reframing of our relationship to them.

The ongoing trend for increasingly complex, interconnected climate models suggests fuller, more accurate representations of reality and the future. However, there are still gaps, inconsistencies and limiting factors that mark the chasm between the model and reality.
