Is There an Analog for the Future Climate?

  • William W. Hay


The Eemian, the Last Interglacial, was very different from that of today. Climate variability was much higher and there were significant changes of sea level in hundreds to a few thousand years. The same is true of the older interglacials. The modern interglacial is unique in having had a 6,000 year history of climate stability that allowed human civilization to develop.
