I laughed so hard I just about pee'ed myself when I saw the abstract to this paper the Medieval Warm Period lives again! doesnt the first part of the graph look just like the 1990 IPCC chart of past temps? of course the second part is ridiculous, but you have to take the good with the bad. I dont see the 2000-2011 flattening of sea level rise in the graph but we're all sure that the one meter rise will happen real soon now. right?
