Climate Models Botch Another Prediction | RealClearScience

From the article: 
The scientific failure here isn't that models are inaccurate -- it's that the models are presented as undebatable apocalyptic predictors, harbingers of certain future catastrophe. Omens that compel us to rethink our lives. If we take issue with that, we're heretics.
Given how fallible climate models are, why shouldn't we be skeptical of the scary headlines? How good can your science be if you try to prove your point by ruining your detractors rather than through empirical success?

I have been skeptical of these apocalyptic forecasts and the "religious" fervor used by scientists with little regard to actual science.
