As coastal elites and MSM reporters remain on the 'stuck-on-stupid' belief that current temperatures are"unprecedented," climate researchers continue to establish a scientific database that documents the unprecedented warmth of the Medieval Warming Period.
The newest addition to the database is a peer-reviewed study by Mullins et al. that reveals the New York region being both warmer and wetter than the present climate.
"Working with two sediment cores extracted from the extreme southern end of Cayuga Lake in central New York researchers "found paleolimnological evidence for the Medieval Warm Period (~1.4-0.5 ka), which was warmer and wetter than today." This evidence included weight percent total carbonate, total organic matter, non-carbonate inorganic terrigenous matter, carbonate stable isotopes, carbon isotope values of total organic matter and fossil types (gastropods, ostracods, bivalves, oogonia) and amounts, all of which were used to interpret past climate based on their relationship to modern climate data for the Finger Lakes region of the state. And to make their findings perfectly clear, they repeat that the "data for central New York suggest a warmer, wetter climate than today."" [Henry T. Mullins, William P. Patterson, Mark A. Teece and Adam W. Burnett 2011: Journal of Paleolimnology]
