New paper finds storm activity in Alaska is at relatively low levels compared to the past 9,600 years
A paper published today in Quaternary Research reconstructs storm activity in Alaska over the past 9,600 years and finds storm activity at the end of the record [2000 AD] was at relatively low levels in comparison to the rest of the Holocene [past ~10,000 years]. The authors also find storm activity was more variable from 1500 AD - 1850 AD during the Little Ice Age, which contradicts alarmist claims that warming causes increased extreme weather.
