If climate models are so good

how come they don't model La Nina and El Nino?

Global temperatures for 2008 will be slightly cooler than last year as a result
of the cold La Nina current in the Pacific, UN meteorologists have said.
The World Meteorological Organization's secretary-general, Michel Jarraud, told the BBC it was likely that La Nina would continue into the summer.

They are, after all, well known phenomena. And if they can't predict these how can they make this statement:
and in a few years time we are confident that the current record temperature of 1998 will be beaten when the La Nina has ended

And yes i do understand the difference between weather and climate and long term trends. My point is that alarmists seem happy to use peaks like 2008, El Nino high? to make their point, yet when another phenomena is only a blip.
