“Using the IPCC warming rate for our demonstration, we projected the rate successively over a period analogous to that envisaged in their scenario of exponential CO2 growth—the years 1851 to 1975.

Relative errors were larger for longer forecast horizons.” – Kesten C Green, Scott Armstrong and Willie Soon in paper to be published in International Journal of Forecasting.
