In order to attract the climatologists to come here and contribute you need to have funds or connections to individuals/institutions of importance or media access.

From what I see NASA and number of other agencies are doing, is they are re-inventing the climatology or making it obsolete, by the new satellite networks I mentioned earlier.

Large computing resources are what is needed, crack programmers and leadership of minds like John.

Obviously I am not dictating this, do as you like, but I think the writing is on the wall from where I am standing: satellites orbiting the earth stream gargantuan real-time data (oceanic, atmospheric, top of atmospheric, soil moisture and vegetation) to highly optimized machine learning servers...
