UPDATE: An English version of Jos Hagelaars Dutch post is now available on Our Changing Climate. Eli appreciates their recognition that this indeed is the Wheelchair Curve
Jos Hagelaars splicing of the Shakun, Marcott, HadCRUT4 and CMIP5 A1B temperature anomaly reconstructions is clearly going to become iconic. Icons, like the hockey stick, need names. Eli was playing around with a few, the beach chair, the Barca lounger the airplane seat, none quite fit, until the Rabett thought about what we are doing to our world
Oh yes, FWIW, the spike at the end is the instrumental record and the CMIP5 models of our future based on our current behavior and has nothing to do with how accurate the Marcott reconstruction is at recent times. Indeed that is the strength of Hagelaar's wheelchair, that it uses multiple sources to give us the big picture in one figure.
