Computer models used to simulate global climate agree the climate will warm in response to increasing atmospheric greenhouse gases. However, a recent paper by Bador et al. (2018)1 includes results that highlight our uncertainty about exactly how extremely wet conditions will change in Australia. Further development of Australia’s national climate model, ACCESS, may help reduce this uncertainty.

Debugging made easier with Collateral package

James Goldie has created the Collateral package to ease the pain of debugging. You can repeat a potentially risky operation—building a statistical model, rendering a plot, computing a tricky index—on as many groups of data as you want, and collateral will quickly show you which groups ended with errors, which ones returned results, and which ones finished but printed warnings or other messages.
