Climate alarmist extraordinaire, Joe Romm, reports:

Another major study predicts rapid warming over next few years – nearly 0.3°F by 2014

From 2009 to 2014, projected rises in anthropogenic influences and solar irradiance will increase global surface temperature 0.15 ±0.03 °C, at a rate 50% greater than predicted by IPCC.

So conclude Judith Lean, of the US Naval Research Laboratory, and David Rind, of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies in a new Geophysical Research Letters study, “How Will Earth’s Surface Temperature Change in Future Decades?” (subs. req’d).

Let’s provide a little perspective for Mr. Romm:AIT Index 7_09

And if Mr. Romm doesn’t understand the point made by the Al Gore/AIT Index, Vol. 14 above, I’ll explain further. If an approximately 4 1/2 year .3°F (.16°C) temperature rise is what Romm would call “rapid warming”, certainly a .74°F (.39°C) cooling trend in only 3 1/2 years (since An Inconvenient Truth was released on January 24, 2006 at the Sundance Film Festival) is certainly something to be alarmed about – if you’re an alarmist.  I’m not.

Even if Romm is correct about the predicted warming, it would only serve to make the larger point that the temperatures go up, and then they go down, and so on, and so on, and so on, and so on.

What’s your point, Joe?
