Can we model the environment using computers?

    Yes. In fact, an entire subbranch of science is dedicated to environmental modeling, including climate change modeling. There are many programs that can aid with this, from simple ones you can run on your own computer to much more complex ones that can handle many inputs and must be run on a supercomputer. The IPCC report used climate modeling extensively, and it was instrumental in producing the results. There is also an entire scientific journal for environmental modeling:

    The most common way of modeling the environment using computers today is by using Geographic Information System (GIS) software. This software allows the user to input and interpret many different types of data at once, making it perfect to use for environmental modeling. The software can analyze geographic information and translate it into data tables and maps. It has really opened up the world of computer modeling.
