"His new code shows the same general warming trend as the original program."
Cool, now finally we can convince people that global warming is real. A code written in python has proved it.
Regarding Python vs old Fortran:
I love python for writing simple demonstration routines, data analysis, and graphics. But I don't think I could ever recommend using it for a large scale program that needs to be maintained by several people.

_Nature_467,745-878 for 14 October 2010, on page 775, has an article entitled "...why scientific programming does not compute"
It even gets a jab at Fortran.
We should not forget code correctness issues.
