Paper 1:  Paleoclimate Implications

The revised paper "Paleoclimate Implications for Human-Made Climate Change" has been submitted for publication in "Climate Change at the Eve of the Second Decade of the Century: Inferences from Paleoclimate and Regional Aspects: Proceedings of Milutin Milankovitch 130th Anniversary Symposium" (Eds. A. Berger, F. Mesinger and D Šijački), Springer.  It is currently being refereed.
This revised version has also been published in arXiv:1105.0968v2[physics.ao-ph]
Thanks for comments on the first draft.  The writing has been tightened up, but the paper is longer because the section on climate sensitivity has been moved into this paper from paper 2 ("Earth's Energy Imbalance").  That will make paper 2 a more manageable size, and climate sensitivity really belonged in paper 1 anyhow.
The style of paper 1 is hybrid, trying to make it understandable to a broad audience, yet parts of it (e.g., climate sensitivity) are necessarily technical.
Paper 2 ("Earth's Energy Imbalance") should be revised and submitted to a journal within the next few weeks, whereupon we will be able to finish paper 3 ("The Case for Young People and Nature").
