“It is unfortunate that my research, “An ikaite record of late Holocene climate at the Antarctic Peninsula,” recently published in Earth and Planetary Science Letters, has been misrepresented by a number of media outlets.Just det, den Antarktiska halvön utgör inte hela det södra halvklotet. Bland syndarna hittar vi bl a vissa mindre nogräknade utländska media, och vissa mindre nogräknade svenska bloggar.
Several of these media articles assert that our study claims the entire Earth heated up during medieval times without human CO2 emissions. We clearly state in our paper that we studied one site at the Antarctic Peninsula. The results should not be extrapolated to make assumptions about climate conditions across the entire globe. Other statements, such as the study “throws doubt on orthodoxies around global warming,” completely misrepresent our conclusions. Our study does not question the well-established anthropogenic warming trend.”
Vi får nog räkna med att det här kommer att surra runt ett tag.
