Also, they say For the next two decades, a warming of about 0.2°C per decade is projected for a range of SRES emission scenarios.

That is from the the Fourth Assessment report. What time frame are you claiming it covers?


Parsing really isn't your strong suit. What part of the next two decades is unclear to you?
Given that it is the 2007 report (you can tell because at the top it says IPCC Fourth Assessment Report: Climate Change 2007), one would think that covers the period 2007 forward for two decades. That would be, oh, 2007-2027?

And since the rate of warming has been decelerating for the last 14 years (my calcs are down to .05°C per decade and decrease every month), that's gonna be a hard target to hit.
