Did you watch it?
Dude, how could I reference slide 7/8 if I hadn't watched it?
Clearly, you aren't reading for content and have no intention of actually addressing the point.

Which is to say, you are a troll. Not unexpected.

Here is something to consider:
Since IPCC’s first report in 1990, assessed projections have suggested global average temperature increases between about 0.15°C and 0.3°C per decade for 1990 to 2005. This can now be compared with observed values of about 0.2°C per decade, strengthening confidence in near-term projections.
http://www.ipcc.ch/publications_and_data/ar4/wg1/en/spmsspm-...

In reality, the maximum velocity of temperature increase was .22°C per decade and occurred in 1999.
At the time of this report the record high global average temp of 1998 had just been statistically tied (note it has never been exceeded by the margin of error), yet 9 years of no increase in global temp strengthened their confidence that they were correct.
And you think that is not overstating the case. Fascinating.

Fwiw, here's my prediction: it's going to get warmer, probably on the order of .75C per century (about half the low end of the IPCC prediction). There will be cycles. Sometime is will get warmer fast, sometimes it will hold steady. Sometimes it may even decline, but not in general. This will happen regardless of worldwide industrialization.

I've been saying essentially this for, oh, 20 years now.
I seem to be correct. Just sayin'.
