    Very nice explanation of a clean, simple point. I hadn’t realized that the resolutions had increased so much in just the last seven years.

    It would be nice if they could somehow illustrate the increase in complexity of their models. The only metric for doing so would be the number of lines of computer code in their models, which of course would be contested by the denialosphere on the grounds that it’s not a perfect metric. Still, I think it would be an interesting graph.
