      “Over the past one thousand years, global temperatures exhibited strong correlation with variations in the sun’s activity. This warming and cooling was certainly not caused by manmade variations in atmospheric CO2, because fossil fuel use was insignificant until the 20th century. Allegre, a former French Socialist Party leader and a member of both the French and U.S. Academies of Science, was one of the first scientists to sound global warming fears 20 years ago, but he now says the cause of climate change is "unknown." He ridiculed what he termed the "prophets of doom of global warming" in a September article.

    In their view, the next 5, years "have seen a general reduction in surface water storage," marked by a number of short-lived fluctuations. 42 Nicholson and Flohn distinguish an earlier African pluvial f to 8, years ago, and a later one lasting from to years ago, separated by an arid interval around 7, years ago.

A large asteroid or comet, the kind that could kill a quarter of the world's population, smashed into the Indian Ocean 4, years ago, producing a tsunami at least meters high, about 13 times as big as the one that inundated Indonesia nearly two years ago.

Global sea level and Earth’s climate are closely linked. Using speleothem encrustations from coastal caves on the island of Mallorca, we determined that western Mediterranean relative sea level was ~1 meter above modern sea level ~81, years ago during marine isotope stage (MIS) 5a.

Although our findings seemingly conflict with the eustatic sea-level curve of far-field sites, they. The lake lasted about years, from ~ ka (the Bonneville flood) to ~ ka (the beginning of the Bølling-Allerød dry period).

During this time lake-level rose due to threshold control and aggradational beach deposits formed in response.
