Comment Re: Paging Dr. Faustus (Score 1) 481

Why are you under the impression that mid-14th century had anything to do when Greenland was warm, and the farm was built?

Why is it important for you to deny known climatic history?

Ice core and mollusk shell data suggests that from A.D. 800 to 1300, southern Greenland was much warmer than it is today. This means that when the Vikings first arrived, the Greenland name would make sense. But by the 14th century, maximum summer temperatures in Greenland had dropped.

"ice sheets move"

Are you disputing the well known warmer arctic temperatures during the Viking era? And if so, why do you deny known historic climate?

(Erik did name it Greenland since it sounded attractive, but it still was green. Greener than today)

Only invisible if you are one eyed and blind.

... or a climate scientist?

Elizabeth Muller, Executive Director of Berkeley Earth, said, “We have compelling scientific evidence that global warming is real and human caused, but much of what is reported as ‘climate change’ is exaggerated. Headlines that claim storms, droughts, floods, and temperature variability are increasing, are not based on normal scientific standards. We are likely to know better in the upcoming decades, but for now, the results that are most solidly established are that the temperature is increasing and that the increase is caused by human greenhouse emissions. It is certainly true that the impacts of global warming are still too subtle for most people to notice in their everyday lives.”

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.
