The world's largest climate forecasting experiment for the 21st century.

Your personal background.
I am a German physicist in the early fourties [1]. I love my wife, son and daughters, computers, books and music, each of which does get too little attention due to the necessity of having to earn a living [2].
When I started with distributed computing at Seti@Home (classic), I used to crunch alone. After switching to BOINC, I finally became a member of team BOINC Synergy, which makes crunching even more fun. Chatting in the friendly and helpful forum, crunching together to promote a Project of the Month, and seeing what you can achieve as a team makes it worthwhile to join a team. I strongly recommend it to anybody.

Notes:
[1] I could give the exact age, but then would have to update my profile on a regular basis, which - at my age - I will certainly forget. ;-)
[2] Not that I don\'t enjoy my work. But I happen to know even more enjoyable ways to spend my day. ;-)


Your opinions about climateprediction.net
Based on the current data and in accordance with the majority of scientists I believe that in the mid to long term the changing climate will be a huge problem for all species on earth. Unfortunately there are still those that deny that climate change and the necessity for humankind to minimize it, among them leaders of powerful nations.

I participate in CPDN to increase understanding of climate change. CPDN helps us to better understand the validity and limits of our models and in the long run will enable us to improve the models as well as the predictions and the counter measures.
Hopefully this project and my contribution will make a difference in the future.
Unless, of course, we figure out another way to eradicate ourselves.

I joined BOINC Synergy for their statistics and all the great help you can get there. Join us!
