Two Decades of Overestimated Global Warming

January 2014
CO2 Science;1/22/2014, Vol. 17 Issue 4, p1
The article discusses the study "Overestimated global warming over the past 20 years," by John C. Fyle, Nathan P. Gillett and Francis W. Zwiers, in September 2013 issue of "Nature Climate Change," that obtained a 0.30 ± 0.02°C average simulated rise in global mean surface temperature. The authors note that the authors of the study are wrong in suggesting Coupled Model Intercomparison Project 5 (CMIP5) global warming simulations from 1998-2012, be considered infinitely too large.

    Until now, the lack of time-continuous, terrestrial paleoenvironmental data from the Pleistocene Arctic has made model simulations of past interglacials difficult to assess. Here, we compare climate simulations of four warm interglacials at Marine Isotope Stages (MISs) 1 (9 ka), 5e (127 ka), 11c...

    Recent global warming hiatus has received much attention; however, a robust and quantitative definition for the hiatus is still lacking. Recent studies by Scafetta, Wu et al., and Tung and Zhou showed that multidecadal variability (MDV) is responsible for the multidecadal accelerated warming and...
