Not exactly that but close enough.
The three-dimensional atmospheric,solar,terrestrial,ice,ocean-coupled model outputs have been 'matching' observed data since the late 1990s.
Basically everything that the models have predicted has happened.And played backwards,the data matches the past.There's very high confidence/probability in the model predictions.Over 90% as of 2006.Even some predictions,down to a particular year have been accurate.In the 1980s,it took an entire year for a single computer model run.With Moore's Law,and model improvements,the speed and accuracy of predictions has only improved.Now,parallel supercomputers are doing the work.
