"Great moments in climate prediction: ‘World will warm faster than predicted in next five years, study warns’"Anthony Watts / 17 mins ago
That now failed 2009 headline is from Duncan Clark in the Guardian.

The trend in observations from the following datasets show that over the five years 2009-2014, the globe instead cooled by:
HadCRU4 surface data: -0.044C
RSS satellite data: -0.09C
Further, the paper predicts there will be a "pause" in warming due to low solar activity for the subsequent 5 years from 2014-2019 with a temperature change of only 0.03C +/- 0.01.
Ironically, this paper which was claimed by the Guardian rag in 2009 to "silence global warming skeptics" was not only wrong about the predicted anthropogenic warming, but also [possibly correctly] predicts that low solar activity will lead to a "pause" in warming from 2014-2019.
