Tweaking the Climatic Nightmare by Wired News:

A distributed-computing project that rocked the science world with dire predictions about global warming a year ago is enlisting thousands of new volunteers to test various climate models and fine-tune researchers’ forecast of possible climate catastrophe.

Last year’s article Home PCs Predict a Hotter Earth:

Global warming may ramp up average temperatures by 20 degrees Fahrenheit in less than 50 years, according to the first climate prediction experiment relying on the distributed computer power of 90,000 personal computers. The startling results were published this week in the journal Nature.

Head over to climateprediction.net and donate some of your spare computing power SETI-style and help make a difference. And while you’re at it, see if you can pry open the eyes of your friendly neghborhood political leader and get them to address this grave issue!
