Nature Geoscience, 3 (2010) 142-143, doi: 10.1038/ngeo813

Committed climate warming

H. Damon Matthews* (Department of Geography, Planning and Environment, Concordia University, 1455 de Maisonneuve Boulevard W., Montreal, Quebec H3G 1M8, Canada) and Andrew J. Weaver (School of Earth and Ocean Sciences, University of Victoria, PO Box 3065 STN CSC, Victoria British Columbia V8W 3V6, Canada)

The perception that future climate warming is inevitable stands at the centre of current climate-policy discussions. We argue that the notion of unavoidable warming owing to inertia in the climate system is based on an incorrect interpretation of climate science.
