"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.
