This is a blatant falsehood. So far this century, atmospheric temperatures are declining.
Even fraudulent GISS data is nowhere near the Lancet claims.
Perhaps they were ignoring the actual data, and basing their claims on models? The models are hopelessly broken, and don’t put temperatures anywhere near 4C even if they were correct.
The only possible conclusion from this study is that the authors are intentionally misrepresenting the facts, and the peer-review process is hopelessly corrupt.
Earlier this week their editor admitted that half of scientific research is fraudulent

Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness.
