Friday miscellany is global warming

By now you've probably all seen some variation on the theme - planet warmest in 400 years. The media is going on about this in various places, but I know that most of you see this as "spin" so here is a link to the National Academy of Sciences press release. Note that this release includes a link to the actual study. It will cost you for the full report, but a brief version (pdf file) is available here.

So... 400 years ago, it was even warmer?

Must've had a LOT of coal-burning electrical plants in the 1600's :-)
