Subject Index Summary
Medieval Warm Period (North America: Mexico Plus): Climate alarmists claim that rising atmospheric CO2 concentrations due to the burning of fossil fuels, such as coal, gas and oil, have raised global air temperatures to their highest level in the past one to two millennia. In this summary this contention is evaluated as it pertains to North American countries located south of the United States.
