If we can't predict weather beyond 10 days, why can we predict climate beyond 10 years?

This lecture describes the distinction and the scientific underpinnings for weather and climate prediction. Specific examples include El Nino, persistent drought in the western US, decadal climate variability and climate change. Dr. Kirtman also comments on the current advances in climate prediction and prospects for the development of improved predictive capability critical in agriculture and resource management.
