In the past, we've been very critical of climate models and the spreadsheet cubicle-jocks that manipulate these computer-based models. Now comes a new calamitous prediction from the MIT cubicle-jocks (note their "professional" gravitas and the MIT high-tech prediction apparatus).
Well, appearances can be deceiving, so how about their actual CO2-causes disastrous global warming "predictions"? In order for their manipulated climate model predictions to become reality by 2100, global temperatures would have to, starting today, abruptly change to entirely new global temperature growth trends. Below are graphic representations of the needed MIT temperature trend increases (left image from 1900 perspective; right image from 2003 perspective).
Literally, from today's levels of CO2 and global temperatures, they are predicting an immediate runaway climate that has no historical precedence and is real-world impossible (despite what their virtual PC world says). Did we say "mindless"?
We know from the past (see below), that the world has had much higher CO2 levels, yet global temperatures have been both higher and lower. Instead of the MIT manipulated global temperature linear trend, the world's climate exhibits a continuous wave pattern of temperatures, both short and long-term.
