Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In layman's terms - if you try to predict the future based on (complex equations derived from) the past, all you can do is extrapolate the past, not predict new or deviations from past trends?  

But can you not factor in new data - e.g. increased CO2 levels - leading to significantly different results?
