Hotel room at The Mirage just last week: $79 (yes, nice rooms. If you want to go all out on a suite I recommend the Hard Rock Towers)
Absolutely awesome ~$70 steaks: The Homestead at Caesar's Palace
Really good breakfast buffet: The Wynn (~$25 or so I think, was a few years ago I stayed there) ... also, I enjoyed the Blue Man Group in 2008. YMMV.

Please try to have a serious discussion. I've cited the actual paper which supports to number "up to 9 degrees". If you want to claim that there's a scientific error in the peer reviewed literature I can promise you'll have to do better than "Wikipedia gives ... ".

"According to geomorphologic analysis (Koshkarova and Koshkarov, 2004) in north-central Siberia, the HCO warm event consisted of a winter warming of 3–9 C and a summer warming of 2–6 C compared with the modern period. "

(That's Aizen et.al 2016 citing the paper I referenced, K and K 2004)

I think you must be the same anonymous coward who made a similar erroneous statement in a different post in this thread.

This is how the paper was cited by Aizen et. al (2016):

According to geomorphologic analysis (Koshkarova and Koshkarov, 2004) in north-central Siberia, the HCO warm event consisted of a winter warming of 3–9 C and a summer warming of 2–6 C compared with the modern period

Please don't post falsehoods based in what you want the paper to say, and not what it says. It doesn't help the discussion.

Have you read the paper - or what do you base your claim about what it says upon? You know, regarding "derailing".

"keep rising sharply"

Are you suggestion we're soon going to be overrun by cows? Of course the only claimed worry is that the tundra is suddenly going to create a runaway warming scenario where additional warming will release more methane.

I suggest debating the actual points made instead. Apparently no sharply rising releases of methane happened during the Holocene Climatic Optimum - because it's still there.

I'm sorry, are you claiming that methane emissions (while cold) caused the transition from glacial to interglacial stage?

Also, I have not provided evidence for something I haven't claimed. Please follow the logic: If methane emissions from a warming arctic cause runaway warming, why did it not happen when the arctic was warmer than now 8000 years ago?
