A good recent paper and pursuing discussions is about Hansen's 1988
predictions and Hansen's follow-on paper in 2006
http://pubs.giss.nasa.gov/abstracts/2006/Hansen_etal_1.html (Hansen,
J., Mki. Sato, R. Ruedy, K. Lo, D.W. Lea, and M. Medina-Elizade, 2006:
Global temperature change. Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci., 103, 14288-14293,
doi:10.1073/pnas.0606291103.)

For instance websites like
http://rabett.blogspot.com/2006/09/well-lookee-that.html and
http://realclimate.org outline
(http://www.realclimate.org/index.php/archives/2007/05/hansens-1988-projections/)
 the quite accurate predictions by Hansen made almost 20 years ago.

What is interesting how global warming 'skeptics' respond to these
findings. For instance Pielke's response to Hansen is quite telling
and can help people understand the enormous distance between how
science approaches the issue of global warming versus how detractors
respond.
