Computer models had predicted a 1°F rise—showing that the computer models are invalid.
The climate has been cooling slightly since 2000, not warming, so projecting continuous gradual warming into the future is not warranted, says Don J. Easterbrook, Dept. of Geology, Western Washington University, Bellingham, WA.
Winter temperatures in the US over the past decade. Note that temperatures in the Pacific NW have cooled at a rate of 2.22° F per decade, not warmed.
The trend of global temperature since 2001 has been cooling at a rate of -4.0°C (-7°F) per century. Computer models had predicted a 1°F rise in temperature during this same period—that did not happen, showing that the computer models are invalid.
