Distributed weather forecasting

ClimatePrediction.com plan to release software for making long-term weather predictions. Each client will run a climate simulation that will take 12-18 months to complete its 50-100 year forecast. Climateprediction.com will then compare the range of forecasts using a Monte Carlo procedure. Interesting, but whether these forecasts will be useful in the real world (rather than just the model) is another matter.
