The MWP and LIA in Southern Inner Mongolia (22 February 2018)
Real world data once again demonstrate the very real existence of these two climatic periods (MWP and LIA), which climate alarmists would like to erase from the historical temperature record so as to push their false narrative of a monotonic warming of modern temperatures due to rising atmospheric CO2 concentrations, which they additionally (and incorrectly) claim have pushed temperatures to levels that are now unprecedented over the past one to two millennia...

Recovery of Plant Species Diversity in an Alpine Meadow After Two Decades of Simulated Warming (21 February 2018)
In previously published work, experimental warming was shown to induce an approximate 40% decline in plant species numbers after four years. Repeating the analysis following two decades of warming revealed not only a reversal of this trend, but a complete recovery such that the number of species in both control and experimentally-warmed plots were the same...
