"The Holocene records show consistently warmer than present-day Sea Surface Temperatures except for [~ 600 years during the Little Ice Age]."The paper joins hundreds of published non-hockey-stick temperature reconstructions worldwide demonstrating the Medieval, Roman, Egyptian, and Minoan Warm Periods, and Holocene Climate Optimum were all naturally warmer than present-day temperatures.
|Horizontal axis is thousands of years before the present. SST = Sea Surface Temperatures. Present-day SSTs indicated with arrows along the vertical axis|
|LIA = Little Ice Age, MCA = Medieval Warm Period. Note top graph appears to be based upon one of Mann's bogus temperature reconstructions. Remaining graphs show SST reconstructions along southern coast of Chile.|
