Abstract: Recent reconstructions of northern hemisphere temperatures and climate
forcing over the last 1000 years allow the warming of the 20th century
to be placed within a historical context and various mechanisms of
climate change to be tested. Comparison of observations with
simulations from an energy balance climate model indicate that as much
as 41-64% of pre-anthropogenic (pre-1850) decadal-scale ... View entire text
