ever since Dirac, we have known that "atoms have internal (angular) momenta," that must be considered relativistically," mystical reification of Copenhagenskoolers, or not.
thus: yeah, the Eemian; most of the Confirmerists, as well as the Denierists, really don't bother with "before our little Holocene -- we are then!"

thus: Morner was merely the president of a committee of INQUA, devoted to paleoclimate & tide guages, totally mainstream Quaternary Period studies.
> Morner is quack who believes in water dowsing.
thus: that the Ptolemaic epicycles were always a hoax, is manifest in the lack of a really big one, for the precession of the equinoxes, and I'm not a God-am Aquarius, either!

thus: the guy who invented carbon-dating retired at my U,; all of his stuff is probably there, but I was told of this at a seminar by another Nobeliste in chemistry, who developed a means of making fuel from CO2 (say from a coalfired plant) and methane, which is in commercial tryouts.
it's the oil company's that got the data; whether or not they draw any obvious conclusion, who knows, it will probably be in line with their Peack Oil analysis, with which I must currently concur.
> Please give me an egrigeous source for carbon dating of oil.
thus: this is a nice metastudy, as far as retrospective statistics can go. I note that: a) the nighttime warmth anomaly is duly noted & said to be coherent with years of modeling; and that b) there is no hypothesis given for that, at least in this summary (meaning, perhaps, it is just shoved into the models, ad hoc; see _A Vast Machine_ MITPress 2011 .-)
thanks for not playing, folks -- again.
thus quoth: record daily highs to record daily lows observed at about 1,800 weather stations in the 48 contiguous United States from January 1950 through September 2009
