Not unusual I am sorry to say. It will get updated eventually...

The credit script looks as if it hasn't been run in that time - it is supposed to be run every week on either a Friday or Saturday and I am sure someone else wioll correct me if I am wrong. Hopefully the script will be run shortly but as has been posted elsewhere - it is summer hols in Oxford and also a bank holiday weekend - so we don't expect much in the next few days.

Thanks Randi.
Looks like the jobs are getting through which is what I was worried about.

ClimatePrediction.net - Credit Status
As outlined earlier in this thread, there has been a problem with the credit script which has started throwing an error when Andy tried running it manually. He is in between other work trying to work out what is causing the error so it can be fixed. As credit is based on the trickle up messages sent by BIONC to CPDN and these are all present and indeed backed up, all credit will be granted once the problem is resolved.

Over the past decade, scientists have become more confident in linking heat waves to climate change. As with other extreme events, scientists can?t say that climate change caused a specific heat wave, but they can say it made the heat wave more likely to occur.
Researchers from World Weather Attribution, an international group that analyzes extreme weather events for links to climate change, found that a deadly June heat wave that blanketed much of Western Europe was up to 10 times more likely in our current warming climate than in a simulated world in which there were no greenhouse gas emissions from human activities.

Since the first attribution study (Stott et al., 2004) was published, the science of probabilistic event attribution has seen formidable advances, not least through the work done at climateprediction.net.
