In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier.

Climate Prediction: The Limits of Ocean Models

Oceans play a significant role in the behavior of climate, and of simulated climate models. Models still do not precisely replicate the behavior of oceans, due to the lack of quantifiable data of the complex actions of ocean water. This paper explores some of the weaknesses of current models, and suggests solutions.
