Study Charts 2,000 Years of Continental Climate Changes

Notice the Arctic, Asia, and Australia have very high temperature rises. 

"A comprehensive new analysis of temperature changes over the continents through 2,000 years has found that a long slide in temperatures in most regions preceded the unusual global warming of recent decades, but with a lot of regional variability and other fascinating details. A National Science Foundation news release has ample background."

Thank you for the invitation to join this group.  I am so happy to have found this page!  I was reading Atheism for Dummies, and they had a link to this page, which is how I found you.  Anyway, thanks again for the invite!:-)

I predict Homo sapiens urbanthugensis will die-out quickly.
