Schmidt, G.A., and A.N. LeGrande, 2005: The Goldilocks abrupt climate change event. Quat. Sci. Rev., 24, 1109-1110, doi:10.1016/j.quascirev.2005.01.015.

One important reason to understand past climate changes is to help improve the predictions for the future. However, this is more often said than actually done. There are, of course, many very good reasons why this is so; the inevitable disparities in timescales (millions of years compared to decades), difficulties in proxy interpretation and the often very different focuses of the paleoclimate and modelling communities. Occasionally though, a particular period or event presents itself as an almost ideal case study for model-data comparisons. The article by Alley and Ágústsdóttir in this issue is a review of one such case: the 8.2 kyr event.
