The scientists have proved, using this highly advanced and sophisticated model, that a temperature increase of more than 2 degrees Celsius caused by human-induced carbon dioxide emissions is now likely.
They are expecting a prize, too.
This highly advanced computer climate model anticipates no possibility of Earth’s temperature going down; so there is no need to worry about another Dalton Minimum, obviously.
Elsewhere, prospects for a healthy sunspot cycle 24 have degraded further, since February. Indeed, global warming stopped and a cooling is beginning.

A new analysis of climate risk, published by researchers at MIT and elsewhere, shows that even moderate carbon-reduction policies now can substantially lower the risk of future climate change. It also shows that quick, global emissions reductions would be required in order to provide a good chance of avoiding a temperature increase of more than 2 degrees Celsius above the pre-industrial level — a widely discussed target.
