I thought I was interested. After looking at it, I'm not. One of the graphs looks like someone trolling a worm to catch the incredulous.

Perhaps it would be better to post the MIT study rather than a blog attack on it.

A blog? A blog? A blog?

Are you blogging kidding me?

Please look up the word credibility in the dictionary.

I would wonder about the real study, just focusing on the last 8 years in the blog is an easy way to make people look bad while distorting the figures...of course pushing a big increase in temps on the scatter graph presented even with the 100 years of back data is inappropriate if you increase the Y axis like that.

The only thing you can get online is either the abstract:

AMS Online Journals - Probabilistic forecast for 21st century climate based on uncertainties in emissions (without policy) and climate parameters

or an MIT office press release:

Climate change odds much worse than thought - MIT News Office

Interesting looking graphs, but yeah, I would want to see the entire article myself including data set. This global warming/climate change argument is too polarized to trust either side with their reports, abstracts, and press releases.
