Help predict the end of the world

What am I on about? Why the great climate change experiment that's been running for a dog age, but I've just got involved with because the great behemoth that is the BBC is supporting it.
It is one of these many distributed computing experiments, where people download a small application, and whilst your PC is sat doing nothing it chugs away working out if the world will end due to climate change, or will just melt a bit.
The folks running it all do a better job of explaining it all than I am, so skip on over to their website to find out about it and get involved. And then we can compare our globes, and see which one of us brings about the most doom to the world!! Awesome.
BBC Four are also trailing some programmes to do with time that look interesting - I'll be keeping an eye on these.
