It is necessary to check the derived temperature history using
Independent temperature proxies:

aerosols, etc. for the next century are essential for
the prediction of anthropogenic effects on the
global and regional climates.
The IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate
Change) has, over the years prepared a number of
such scenarios. In 1992 it released the IS92
scenarios. In 2000, the IPCC proposed a number
of new scenarios, known as the SRES scenarios
Storylines must be quantified in terms of population growth,
economic growth, energy supplies and usage, mix of
renewable/fossil/nuclear fuels, technology development,
Projections of atmospheric CO2 concentrations
Changes in ocean pH and Aragonite saturation. Aragonite is a meta-stable form
of calcium carbonate. Calcium carbonate will dissolve at levels below 100%
saturation, removing an important sink of dissolved carbon in the surface ocean.
Sea rise due to thermal expansion a meta-stable form
Projections of total sea-level rise due to all causes a meta-stable form
Simulations in atmospheric CO a meta-stable form2 concentrations
