Perspective… What a novel idea!

What do you get when you combine the GISP2 d18O climate reconstruction (Alley) with Ljungqvist’s recent 2,000 Northern Hemisphere reconstruction and the HadCRUT3 Northern Hemisphere instrumental data?

You get something called “perspective.”

10,000 years of perspective.

5,000 years of perspective.

3,500 years of perspective.
