Glitches in computer software programming are common, as many of us know when our computers either freeze up or crash altogether. That’s why having updates, or the most recent versions of a software, are vitally important. But according to Gary Strand of the National Center for Atmospheric Research, it appears the U.S. government is a little behind when it comes to industry standards, as the computer models relied upon to forecast future climate change do not meet the “best standards available.” Since another one of NASA’s top modelers also admitted that government software is so flawed it can produce two sets of opposite results on two different computers, it appears today’s climate models aren’t even good enough for government work.
