How Global Warming Will Affect Us All

Welcome to the Team Scotland Presence on the net.
Our planet is under constant change but how much of it is man made ?
This project is run by Oxford University, and seeks to find out.

The Experiment

In order to predict our future weather systems, Super Computers are usually used,
but there is no super computer yet built that can handle this project quickly enough.
Even the fastest will take many years by which time it may be to late.
However, there is a way of speeding up this process and that involves people power.
there is a way to link together tens of thousands of home computers, to make a super computer.
This Computer would be 10 or more time as
powerful as the most powerful Super Computer on the planet today.

How You Can Help

It could not be simpler. You just download a little program with your own weather model.
This program works in the background on your PC, so you never know its their.
It calculates what the outcome could be for one set of circumstances of climate change.
Everybody has a different model, so you are uniquely contributing to the huge model.
On your PC, you get a nice user interface with a spinning globe showing your progress.
there are teams like the Scotland team to join, and you get credits for work done.
