The warmists keep insisting that it’s CO2 and that the sun is not playing a role in our climate today. According to them, the sun has been on strike and stopped playing a role since mankind started its sinful use of CO2.
Yet another study is out and shows that the warmists are off in Cuckooland with their CO2 science.
Die kalte Sonne website brings our attention to a paper by Nozomu Hamanakaa, Hironobu Kana, Yusuke Yokoyamad, Takehiro Okamotoc, Yosuke Nakashimag and Toshio Kawanah of Okayama University titled:
Disturbances with hiatuses in high-latitude coral reef growth during the Holocene: Correlation with millennial-scale global climate change, where an ancient coral reef was studied.
The study was published in the journal Global and Planetary Change in January 2012.
A 6000-year old coral reef on the Japanese island of Kodakara, which was exposed during street construction works, was studied in great detail and reporesents a valuable climate archive of the last several thousand years. The reef was lifted over the surface of the water by tectonic action two and half thousand years ago.
Field observations and coral radiocarbon dating of excavated trench walls of the uplifted middle-to-late Holocene coral reef on Kodakara Island show evidence of the existence of disturbances with hiatuses in coral reef growth and coral composition differences before and after the disturbances. The scientists found three disconformities in the reef occurred at approximately 5.9 to 5.8, 4.4 to 4.0, and 3.3 to 3.2 cal yr B.P.
