New paper finds another non-hockey-stick in Russian Subarctic, 'temperatures at least 1°C higher than the present' during Holocene Climate Optimum
A paper published today in Quaternary Research reconstructs temperatures in the Russian Subarctic over the past 10,000 years and finds "The regional Holocene Thermal Maximum, characterized by maximum warmth and dryness occurred at 7900–5400 calendar years before the present. During this period, July temperatures were at least 1°C higher than at present."
