and tell me he's the equal of James Hansen the atmospheric specialist.
What does a marine geologist know about atmospheric physics?
And what's the point of tossing in David Suzuki the zoologist and popularizer of science?
I suggest, it's about "dog whistles" in a game of opinion manipulation. Name dropping games are nothing but distractions from the real questions and lessons we need to face up to. How does our global heat and moisture distribution engine operate and how are we changing that?

Summary: A new study questions the popular notion that 10th-century Norse people were able to colonize Greenland because of a period of unusually warm weather. Researchers say the climate was already cold when the Norse arrived -- and that climate thus probably played little role in their mysterious demise some 400 years later. On a larger scale, the study adds to building evidence that the so-called Medieval Warm Period, when Europe enjoyed clement weather, did not necessarily extend to other parts of the world.
