Cyclones of the Tropical South Pacific: How have they varied over the past four decades?

Millennial-Scale Cycling of Climate in China's Salawusu River Valley: Ever more evidence continues to point to a natural millennial-scale cycling of earth's climate between relatively cooler and warmer conditions throughout the Holocene, suggesting that the recent recovery of the world from the global chill of the Little Ice Age was only to be expected, and that it need not have been driven by anthropogenic CO2 emissions, as it's time had merely come.

Old Trees Refusing to Retire: They just keep on growing, and growing ever better. Could they be responding to rising CO2 concentrations?
