    The latest decadal forecast, issued in December 2012, show that the Earth is expected to maintain the record warmth that has been observed over the last decade, and furthermore a substantial proportion of the forecasts show that new record global temperatures may be reached in the next 5 years.  

    Decadal forecasts provide essential information about natural variability and how it will evolve in the next few years in the context of a globally warming world, but they do not tell us anything about long-term climate sensitivity (i.e. how much the planet will warm for a specified increase in radiative forcing related to greenhouse gases).  There is no evidence that current estimates of climate sensitivity produced by the Met Office Hadley Centre have changed.

    it's a shame that they have to waste time clarifying, but when you have a well-funded denier nexus constantly working to deceive people...
