How fast will future warming be?"
But these intrusions of misplaced statistical pontification are an intermittent feature of the climate distraction. We had Beenstock and Reingewertz, which didn't exactly forecast, but claimed time series modelling proved the death of AGW. There was Ludecke et al, which was mainly very bad Fourier analysis, but did forecast (naturally) an imminent cooling based on the periodicity of the trigs functions used. And there was Keenan, pulling strings at the House of Lords to promote his Arima (3,1,0) model to claim great uncertainty about trend.
So I want to talk more about the place, if any, of statistical time series forecasting here.
