31. It's F'n Lewis Page exagerating - again

Lewis is a long time climate change denier and a BIG fan of nuclear power.

I note he give no link to the study he is purportedly citing and seems to quote selectively.
Clues to climate from rare cold water mineral: Futurity dot org
The scientists analyzed the ratio of the oxygen isotopes in the hydration water and in the calcium carbonate. They compared the results with climate conditions established in Northern Europe across a 2,000-year time frame. They found a direct correlation between the rise and fall of oxygen 18 in the crystals and the documented warming and cooling periods.

“We showed that the Northern European climate events influenced climate conditions in Antarctica,” Lu says. “More importantly, we are extremely happy to figure out how to get a climate signal out of this peculiar mineral. A new proxy is always welcome when studying past climate changes.”

Note that the important parts of this are these quotes
1) “We showed that the Northern European climate events influenced climate conditions in Antarctica,” it says nothing about Antarctica being warmer just that a North European climate had some undesignated effect upon the Antarctic
2) “More importantly, we are extremely happy to figure out how to get a climate signal out of this peculiar mineral. A new proxy is always welcome when studying past climate changes.” i.e. there was a detectable signal from an North European event in Antarctica.

Please treat Mr Page with extreme caution because he specialises in deceit, mainly of himself.
