New ice core data from Antarctica suggests in the past 10,000 years temperatures have often been higher than today, and that the rise in temperatures during the past 100 years is also not unprecedented.

The uncertainty of science: New ice core data from Antarctica suggests that in the past 10,000 years temperatures have often been higher than today, and that the rise in temperatures during the past 100 years is also not unprecedented.

These results are actually not news. Climate scientists have known for decades that today’s climate is not unique, and that the Earth has gone through similar temperature fluctuations in the past. The results simply reconfirm this fact, and make any global warming claims to the contrary less believable.

    As always, good to go to the author of the paper for his take. Here is his quote:
    “If I am pressed to say whether I think it’s human-induced, then I would say what we are seeing is human-induced.”

    He just made a global warming claim.

  • There’s a big difference between humans affecting climate and let’s take political control of everybody.

    political Control is indeed what is being produced here. i recently listened in on a summary of atmospheric deviations and weather history presented by a PhD from Great Britain and ….nothing out of the ordinary is going on. further, the entire influence of man made contributes adds a whopping .03% to the Earths atmosphere. holy crap, run for your lives, the Sky is Falling .
