The Medieval and Roman Warm Periods in Southeast Italy

September 2010
CO2 Science;9/8/2010, Vol. 13 Issue 36, p5
The article discusses a study which examined the Medieval and Roman warm periods in Southeast Italy. It was found that the Medieval warm period was characterized by temperatures that were similar to the present while the temperatures during the Roman warm period were similar to those of today or even slightly warmer. Findings suggest that something other than elevated carbon dioxide may well be responsible for the significant warmth in the present period.
