Editorial
Earth's Temperature History: How Well Is It Known?: New findings suggest we may be premature in prescribing drastic cuts in anthropogenic CO2 emissions based on what we have been told about earth's climatic history over the past several years.

Subject Index Summaries
Dark Ages Cold Period (South America): Far from the handful of lands where climate alarmists might possibly be willing to acknowledge its existence, i.e., those lands that surround the North Atlantic Ocean, the Dark Ages Cold Period is strongly expressed in proxy climate data from South America.

Transpiration (Woody Plants: Dryland Shrubs): How do dryland shrubs respond to atmospheric CO2 enrichment, and what are the consequences for the biosphere?

Journal Reviews
Flooding and Drought in the US Northern Great Plains: Have the two hydrologic phenomena become more extreme in response to the supposedly unprecedented global warming of the 20th century?

The Urban Heat Island of Debrecen, Hungary: How strong is it?  What drives it?  And what do the answers to these questions imply about our ability to use urban temperature measurements to correctly quantify background climate change?

The Little Ice Age in Southernmost Chile: Wherever one looks around the world, there is evidence for the Little Ice Age, a period of colder temperatures that climate alarmists claim was a regional phenomenon of lands that border the North Atlantic Ocean.

Primary Production of Inner Mongolia, China: How has it varied over the past couple of decades?

Experimental Warming of Icelandic Plant Communities: Will moderate global warming devastate Iceland's tundra ecosystems?
