Merry Christmas, Global-Warming Cultists!

Here’s my present to you: research showing that CO2 levels in the atmosphere are consistent with the warming and cooling of the oceans, with about a 250-year lag:

We find that the ~250-year lag time is consistent. CO2 levels peaked 250 years after the Medieval Warm Period peaked and the Little Ice Age cooling began and CO2 bottomed out 240 years after the trough of the Little Ice Age. In a fashion similar to the glacial/interglacial lags in the ice cores, the plant stomata data indicate that CO2 has lagged behind temperature changes by about 250 years over the last millennium. The rise in CO2 that began in 1860 is most likely the result of warming oceans degassing.

Be sure to click through for all the pretty charts and analysis.

See? Aren’t I nice to you?
