OK, I'll dive in and start a climate change thread. I'm fascinated by the Nature paper by Abe-Ouchi, et.al., which I already uploaded in post #21 of this thread. If you look at Figure 1, the model does an outstanding job of modeling the last several ice ages. I have been somewhat skeptical of past climate models because they were unable to model the ice ages, but it appears that now they can. So I have two questions: (1) Do others agree that this model is a major step forward? (2) Figure 2 shows that, according to their model, we should already have entered into a period of cooling and sea level decrease. Does the fact that we are continuing to warm and the sea level is continuing to increase help confirm the AGW hypothesis?
