Hulme, Mike (2019): Is it too late (to stop dangerous climate change)? An editorial

Hulme, Mike (2019): Is it too late (to stop dangerous climate change)? An editorial. In Wiley Interdisciplinary Reviews: Climate Change. DOI: 10.1002/wcc.619.

With 2020 right around the corner, we now have enough experience to ask how well these models are doing.  Based on my preliminary analysis reported below, the answer appears to be not so well."
