I blame global warming

Greenland ice core past 10,000 years

I blame global warming for…wait for it…that 9,099 of the past 10,500 years were warmer than 2010. From Dr. Don J. Easterbrook’s post at Watts Up With That:

Most of the past 10,000 have been warmer than the present. Figure 4 shows temperatures from the GISP2 Greenland ice core. With the exception of a brief cool period about 8,200 years ago, the entire period from 1,500 to 10,500 years ago was significantly warmer than present.

Another graph of temperatures from the Greenland ice core for the past 10,000 years is shown in Figure 5 [above]. It shows essentially the same temperatures as Cuffy and Clow (1997) but with somewhat greater detail. What both of these temperature curves show is that virtually all of the past 10,000 years has been warmer than the present.

As Al Gore might say, “how very inconvenient.”
