  1. Manmade Global Warming Refuted by New Study.....

Skeptics of manmade global warming claims can bolster their position with a new study showing that the Earth went through a previous warming period not caused by human CO2 emissions.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has argued that the Medieval Warm Period approximately 500 to 1,000 years ago was confined to Europe and did not affect the entire planet, “which means the worldwide warming we’re experiencing now is a manmade phenomenon,” the Daily Mail observed.

But a team of scientists led by geochemist Zunli Lu from Syracuse University in New York found the warming was not confined to Europe and actually extended all the way down to Antarctica, affecting the entire planet. The finding indicates that “the Earth has already experienced global warming without the aid of human CO2 emissions,” according to the Mail.

Following that period, the Earth cooled down naturally and there was even a “mini ice age.”

Professor Lu’s study — published in the journal Earth and Planetary Science Letters — relies on a rare mineral called ikaite, an icy version of limestone that forms in cold waters. The water that holds crystals of ikaite together traps information about temperatures present when the crystals were formed.

Lu’s team studied ikaite crystals from sediment cores drilled off the coast of Antarctica, and the crystals showed that the Medieval Warm Period and Little Ice Age extended to Antarctica.

Are you not embarrassed that you are such a tool? Here is who funds that SITE. So do you look for information that supports your preconceived notions, or do you just enjoy going to sites that espouse right wing nonsense?

What can I say after Demian's post? Looks like your scientist Zunli Lu is on board with human-caused global warming (like just about every other climate scientist). By the way, that is what "well-established anthropogenic warming trend" means - notice the "well-established."

Zunli Lu: “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.

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.”

Get a clue.

Newsmax?????

One of the few even flakier than FLAKESnews?

Must you scrape the bottom of barrel that hard?

Here's some actual late breaking information.
