New paper finds another non-hockey-stick in Tibet
A paper published today in Global and Planetary Change reconstructs temperatures in Tibet over the past 501 years and finds temperatures in the 1940's through 1980's were warmer than at the end of the record in the year 2000. In addition, the authors reconstruct precipitation and show that there is nothing unprecedented, unusual, or unnatural regarding present levels of precipitation, with the end of the record not being particularly wet or dry, that "dry periods were reconstructed for 1718-1725, 1766-1770 and 1920-1933, whereas 1782-1788 and 1979-1985 were wet periods."
