From page 606...
... A broad spectrum of observations, including both instrumental records and paleoclimate data (the former possibly contaminated by anthropogenic change, the latter not) has revealed substantial variability in the earth's climate on time scales of decades to centuries.
From page 607...
... · Easier access to existing computers must be available to facilitate wider participation in modeling efforts, and higher-speed, larger-memory computers must be developed to make possible more highly resolved models, longer simulations, and more careful sensitivity studies. Records of past climate change, particularly those reflecting the pre-industrial era, must be actively addressed as a source of valuable new data on the natural component of climate variability.

This material may be derived from roughly machine-read images, and so is provided only to facilitate research.
