Via WattsUpWithThat comes this figure from the report that should give all of the global warming boosters pause.

What do you see? Current temperatures are below all of the forecasts (the gray is not a forecast)! Not one of the IPCC reports' forecast ranges are cool enough. So,
- Even the IPCC validates the contention that 1998 was the warmest year and that global warming has stopped.
- All of their forecasts have been too warm.
- There is absolutely no reason to believe their forecasts for 30, 40, 50 years from now based on their miserable track record.
Finally, the new IPCC report validates what many of us have been saying, that there is no upward trend in natural disasters due to global warming.
When I am asked (as I was at a meeting in Tampa a week ago) what world temperatures will do in the future I answer, "I don't know nor does anyone else." The draft report demonstrates even the IPCC now agrees.
