The article considers the expected global warming trend after 2009. Global warming is forecast to set in with a vengeance after 2009, with at least half of the five following years expected to be hotter than 1998. In research published in the journal "Science," Douglas Smith and his colleagues predicted that the next three or four years would show little warming despite an overall forecast that saw warming over the decade.
