NOT THAT I BELIEVE IT FROM A SINGLE source without independent verification, but still. It should be noticed that the study referenced drew data from a far wider universe of specimens than the one which supposedly supports Michael Mann’s hockey stick graph. It also samples a far longer time scale and a wider geographic area.
But still… It’s only Scandinavia. It’s hard to accept a single set of indicators in a geographically limited area as illustrative of global trends.
But still again: countervailing.
