• Warmer planet can support glacial ice (UCSD) – New research challenges the generally accepted belief that substantial
    ice sheets could not have existed on Earth during past super-warm
    climate events. The study by researchers at Scripps Institution of
    Oceanography at UC San Diego provides strong evidence that a glacial
    ice cap, about half the size of the modern day glacial ice sheet,
    existed 91 million years ago during a period of intense global warming.
  • Global temperatures have plateaued (the Australian) – "Actually, there has been cooling, if you take 1998 as your point of
    reference. If you take 2002 as your point of reference, then
    temperatures have plateaued. This is certainly not what you’d expect if
    carbon dioxide is driving temperature because carbon dioxide levels
    have been increasing but temperatures have actually been coming down
    over the last 10 years….The head of the IPCC has
    actually acknowledged it. He talks about the apparent plateau in
    temperatures so far this century. So he recognizes that in this
    century, over the past eight years, temperatures have plateaued …
    This is not what you’d expect."
