Simulate "The Day After Tomorrow" On Your PC

kpearson writes "climateprediction.net, a distributed computing project
to predict Earth's climate 50 years from now, has a new add-on project
to study THC slowdown (how climate might change as CO2 changes in the
event of a decrease in the strength of the thermohaline circulation).
This kind of rapid, extreme climate change is shown in the movie The
Day After Tomorrow, in which New York City is treated to a
10,000-year-long ski season. Anyone can download the project's client
software and participate in the simulation. climateprediction.net was
previously mentioned in the September 13, 2003 article Distributed
Computing and Climate Change." Clients are available for various
varieties of Microsoft Windows, but none are listed for other OSes.
