I recall seeing years ago a PDF by Bob Carter where he plotted a sinusoidal curve to global temp to predict future cooling. Can't for the life of me remember where I saw it. Maybe it's in his article list:

Would be good to include him in our dodgy prediction series.

Just doing a search and I found an article in The Australian where Carter describes several other global cooling predictions we could use in the series.  Not his own though.  I also discussed a couple in Not So Cool Predictions.

If Swastikagate teaches us anything, it's the power of a strong visual and how it can go viral - I remember seeing a graph by Carter with the sinusoid curve superimposed. But dangit, have no clue where I saw it, was years ago! (which means there's been plenty of time for it to go bad - maybe he scrubbed it!)

Here Carter fits a sine curve to the temp data, but he doesn't extend it to the future.
