OCEAN WARMING MUCH GREATER IN MEDIEVAL WARM PERIOD

This piece refers to a very interesting paper which produces evidence that the oceans were about a degree C warmer during the Medieval Warm Period than in the Little Ice Age. If true this is a remarkable find, since scientists are currently arguing over changes of as little as 0.01C. If the oceans have changed as much as 1 degree in the fairly recent past then the tiny changes being argued over are, in comparison, pretty inconsequential. No wonder this paper has received no publicity.
