That does not mean the 'true value' is the median of that range. It means the 'true value' exists somewhere in that range. We could have actually cooled slightly (although I doubt that). In other words, this is just another scare tactic based on spinning statistical data.

Hmm...scientists are giving us warnings based on data.
But thats not how half the people in murica think..gotta ask them what corporations and some politicians think to counter it.
...seriously though, we're screwed.
Who is gonna tell China and India to stop polluting..or tell westerners to eat less meat and drive less, etc.
We need an active global discussion on technology to counter our lifestyles. thats the only way humans will get ahold of the damage they cause.

Human-caused climate change based on CO2 emissions is not good science, it is great political theater. But that is another subject best understood by following the money and there is a lot of it.

(the period covers the last 0.00000002% of the Earth's existence.)
Also, it means that it is not unprecedented. What happened following the other times it rose at this pace? For how long should the pace continue to be unprecedented?
