This Forum is based on my own personal experience with the climate and paleoclimate community during the past several years. This experience includes having read numerous articles and having witnessed numerous interdisciplinary discussions at various conferences. A theme I have frequently encountered is the sense that the resolution of modern state-of-the-art global climate models is so high that—when compared with simple models—their results represent the “absolute truth.” It seems that through genuine efforts to improve aspects of numerical modeling, the point that they are still models and not observational data is occasionally forgotten.
