Climate: Never mind this weekend what about a forecast for 10 years from now ? Warmer

Recommended Posts

The surprise factor in this is vanishingly small. 

However, a similar forecast could have been issued in 2006, would have been essentially correct, yet we had both ends of 2010, March 2013, and a few other treats along the way. 

So I wouldn't throw too many toys out of the pram, what would you prefer anyway, ten slightly colder years, or nine warmer ones and another 2010?

I confess the bit that puzzles me is the apparent mismatch between historic studies ( ice and sediment cores) and current work which seem to give different projections.

Is there close correlation between the two methodologies for the 20th century or are pollen analyses in modern times perhaps overly corrupted by large scale agricultural practice?
