Error strikes 'BBC climate model'

A "major error" has been discovered in the world's biggest online climate prediction project, backed by the BBC.

The fault in a model launched in February causes temperatures in past climates to rise quicker than seen in real observations.

The program, which runs on users' computers when they are idle, aims to generate forecasts of climate change.

The project scientists have now fixed the fault and say the data collected so far is still useful. More @ BBC
