New paper finds Siberian temperatures 5,000 years ago were up to 1.5C higher than today
A paper published today in Quaternary International reconstructs temperatures over the past 10,000 years and finds that July temperatures in Siberia were "equal or up to 1.5 °C higher than today between 6,000 and 5000 years [ago]" during the Holocene Climate Optimum.
