Am I missing something, or is this story in the Telegraph ignoring the woolly mammoth in the room?
"Antarctic temperatures between ice ages '6C warmer than today"http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/enviro ... today.html
Greenpeace are quoted: ''If we can pin down how much warmer temperatures were in Antarctica and Greenland at this time, then we can test predictions of how melting of the large ice sheets will contribute to sea level rise.''
Louise Sime from BAS, lead author of the report, said: ''We analysed Antarctic ice cores to look at climate during past warm periods and were surprised to find relatively high Antarctic temperatures during some spikes.
''We don't yet know what caused these peaks, but we would like to be sure we haven't missed anything important about how Antarctica is set to change in a warming world.''
Not a word about all those cars and 100 W lightbulbs that must have wrecked the world's climate 125,000 years ago.
