Wait, It Was Warmer In The Antarctic In The Past?

Via The Hockey Schtick

According to a paper published in Quaternary Science Reviews 29 (2010), new high-resolution ice core data from two sites in eastern Antarctica show temperature proxies more than 4°C higher during the last interglacial (~130,000 years ago) than the present interglacial……

Doomsday news reports and the IPCC have claimed that rising CO2 will cause a 4°C increase and that the earth has not experienced temperatures 4°C higher than the present over the last 55 million years….

As the saying goes, read the whole thing, which is only two paragraphs, which made excerpting challenging, bad form to excerpt the whole thing.

So, if the Earth has seen higher temps, perhaps you alarmists will jump off the “it’s all Mankind’s fault” bandwagon and come back to reality. Heh, heh, I amused myself writing that

    Teach no one has yet been able to point out a time when the temps have risen as fast as they have recently. And since the greatest increase in temps has been observed in the Northern Hemisphere where 90% of the humans live I am nor quite sure what your point is. That earth’s temps have fluctuated wildly over the last 4 billion years ? Teach can we haz some of that global cooling soon ? Please.

  2. Really? Try at the end of the last ice age, John, for one. Look it up.

    Teach, at the moment I can’t find my way to the exact artile, but it has been shown that the Earth’s temp rose faster in the late 1700s than it has in the last century. As per usual, johnnie IS a ‘lil Liar.

    Now, I know why Gore thinks it was getting warmer …. he was having an affair! Things must have been real hot!

    Well, Antarctica wasn’t always at the south pole, either. Continents drift.
