From Russia to the Indian Ocean to Antarctica, floor temperatures had been a lot hotter than they're immediately throughout Medieval occasions.
1. The Eastern Russia area was 1.5°C hotter than now in the course of the Medieval Warm Period. The fashionable warm-up started centuries in the past and temperatures have declined in the previous couple of centuries. Relative sea ranges had been 1 m increased than now 1,000 years in the past.

2. Scientists use coral fossil proof to recommend imply sea floor temperatures (SST) in the course of the Medieval Climate Anomaly had been “warmer than today”. At the 2 Indian Ocean examine websites, there was no apparent SST warming since 1982.

3. The fashionable (1994-2004) floor temperatures within the South China Sea are colder now than any time within the final 6000 years. Except for a short interval ~500 years in the past, SSTs have been persistently 2-4°C hotter than immediately because the center Holocene.

4. Modern sea ice extent for Antarctica’s Ross Sea is extra in depth immediately (and temperatures cooler) than practically any time in 6000 years. It was hotter with much less sea ice 1.6 to 0.7k years in the past. Penguin numbers decline with cooling/elevated sea ice.
