New paper shows Arctic temperatures were warmer than the present multiple times over past 1357 years
A paper published today in Palaeogeography, Palaeoclimatology, Palaeoecology reconstructs temperatures from shells in the North Iceland region of the Arctic Sea over the past 1357 years. The paper demonstrates that temperatures at the end of the record in the year 2000 were not unusual or unprecedented, and were warmer than the present during at least 4 periods over the past 1357 years. Despite claims of climate alarmists that the Arctic should be the first to display a 'fingerprint' of alleged man-made global warming, this new paper adds to many other peer-reviewed papers demonstrating that there is nothing unusual, unnatural, or unprecedented regarding present temperatures in the Arctic.
