Abstract. G. H. Roe and M. B. Baker (hereafter R&B) claim that analysis of a global linear approximation to the climate system allows one to conclude that the quest for reliable climate predictions is futile. We insist that this quest is important and requires a proper understanding of the roles of both linear and nonlinear methods in climate dynamics.
