I asked because I was wondering what you might mean by conflated.

You see I consider "Computer Science" to be conflated. It makes as much sense as "bicycle science" or "electric drill science". What they call "computer science" is covered by mathematics, electrical engineering and linguistics. But the devices are HUGELY useful in dozens of different fields.

Curiously the whole thing started with mathematical physics. The US Army financed ENIAC to compute ballistics tables for artillary. Eventually the machine could compute a trajectory in less time than it took a fired shell to travel the path. So it is an interesting comparison to simulating climate.

The trouble is that we cannot do repeated tests on the real climate and it would take too much time if it were possible. Also we are dealing with vastly larger amounts of data for the starting conditions and climate is not something man-made like a cannon.

So the question is how useful are the simulations. And what are the consequences of screwing up the only planet we have?

You've demonstrated we both understand the term, conflation.
Do you have an answer to your question, cited above and below?

But conflation of what? If someone has never don any programming I will question how well they comprehend computers. These White boys have been exaggerating them sine the 1950s. Like we have this endless crap about Artificail Intelligence now. But they are irreplaceable for some applications.

The climate change issue is still unique. I do not expect the predictions to be completely accurate but climate models are the only crystal ball we have.

Personally I expect that we will have food production problems before we get to a population of 9 billion which is what is being projected by 2050.

We have had record high temperatures every month for thirteen months until July. We are waiting to see if the streak has continued with August.

So global starvation beond 2050 would not surprise me.

Thank you for answering and thank you for your honesty. As far as 2050 is concerned, all hell is breaking loose, it appears ...
