    A recent paper in Science proves yet another 'warmest ever' event in our global warming world-

    I dont have a subscription so I can't read the paper but it is peer reviewed and all 'sciency' so it must be true, right? a Reuters article on whats happening-

    Oh my! we are all doomed!!!!


    but wait, maybe not! here is an interesting little article from the NOAA archives-

    and here is the pdf of the 1922 Monthly Weather Review http://docs.lib.noaa.gov/rescue/mwr/050/mwr-050-11-0589a.pdf


    hmmmm.....that odd, an unpresidented event that turns out to be not even the warmest in a hundred years? who is running things at these science journals anyways? nevermind, let's spend a few trillion dollars because the consensus is solid and the science is settled.

    It has to be a crock. The north Atlantic from 900-1300 ad was 2-4c above today. It is the one part of the world that I'm sure was warmer then today. Greenland was the same. Even James Hansen admits that these areas where warmer then today, while believing that a large part of the rest of the planet was not as warm. That is of course up to debate...But Greenland and the northern Atlantic is not and this paper tries to say that even that was not as warm...I disagree. What a crock.

    The earth was more inclined towards the poles during this period, so more of the suns energy then today was focused within this area then today, Should be warmer. In I think it was because wine was grown very far north during this period and farms within Greenland. The natural cycles where more favorable towards a warmer arctic, Greenland and north Atlantic.

    I don't know if its true or not, but I bet that thermometer from the year 10 AD is worth some major change on Ebay!

    Nope, both where far warmer then today. http://www.skepticalscience.com/images/Temperature_Pattern_MWP.gif

    don't worry, now that Olbermann works for Gore, he'll be long any minute to explain.
