Of course, they have carefully-crafted computer models to account for any possible variation in support of one fundamental dogma. That's the great thing about computer models: They are malleable and easily discardable to suit the latest trend. Not much difference between computer and human models in that regard, come to think of it.

Here's a nice summary of the problems with computer modeling from Canada Free Press.
