Editorial
Northern Hemisphere Temperatures of the Past Two Millennia: As ever more paleotemperature records become available, reconstructions of earth's temperature history provide ever better approximations of past climate reality.

Guest Editorial
A Concerned Citizen Expresses His Views on the Fossil Fuel Industry and Scientific Research: In response to questions that are periodically raised about the impact of funding sources and "affiliation bias" on scientific research, a seasoned petroleum geologist offers his view of the subject as it relates to his chosen profession.

Subject Index Summaries
Streamflow (Recent Trends): Climate alarmists predict more frequent and severe floods and droughts as the air's CO2 content continues to climb?  What do streamflow data from around the world reveal about this claim?

Long-Term Studies (Woody Plants - Oak Trees): CO2 has a long residence time in the atmosphere.  Therefore, it is important to learn how long-lived plants, such as trees, will respond to the ongoing rise in the air's CO2 content over the course of their lifetimes.  We here explore this subject with respect to oak trees.
