It may be known that the roots of current climate concerns and alarmism are in the study of paleo climate, especially the last 'ice age' as documented extensively by Spencer Weart here. It seems that things all add up, especially ice core records and proxies as well as oceanic isotope proxies. However, new discoveries are made on a regular basis and a more close examination of the details is possible. For instance the north Siberian plains, once the biotope of the Woolly mammoth, is worth a close investigation. So what follows is a fragment of a manuscript I'm working on for discussion. It's that past that triggered my "independent" ideas, encouraged by several of the researchers in that area. Quoting from own concept. Note that this only describes the various publications, which should all be in this list. No theory devellopment whatsoever. It just intends to show that things do not add up nicely.
