Roman Warm Period (North America) -- Summary

June 2010
CO2 Science;6/9/2010, Vol. 13 Issue 23, p7
The article offers information on the Roman Warm Period in North America. The non-carbon dioxide-induced warming is considered one of the evidences of warming may not be caused by higher carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere. One study indicated that warming before AD 300 at Farewell Lake is consistent with the Roman Warm Period in northern Europe.
