This issue's Temperature Record of the week is from Kalispell, Montana. Visit our U.S. Climate Data section to plot and view these data for yourself.

Current Editorial
Is a Climate Regime Shift to Cooler Conditions Beginning to Manifest Itself in Certain of the World's Waters?: We review some of the recent evidence that is beginning to point in that direction.

Subject Index Summaries
Arctic Temperature Trends: Climate alarmists say they depict unprecedented warming due to anthropogenic CO2 emissions.  Real-world data suggest otherwise.

Herbivory (Woody Plants): How will future increases in the air's CO2 content affect the consumption of woody-plant foliage by herbivores?

Current Journal Reviews
Climatic Information Derived from Great Barrier Reef Coral Luminescent Lines: What does it tell us about recent strong ENSO events and contemporary coral bleaching?

A 2300-Year History of Climate and Water Quality Changes in Chesapeake Bay: What can it tell us about millennial-scale climate change, droughts and megadroughts, and the sensitivity of corals to global warming?

More Evidence for the Medieval Warm Period in Africa: As the case for a global Medieval Warm Period grow stronger and stronger, the case for CO2-induced global warming grows weaker and weaker.

Effects of Elevated CO2, Ozone and Projected Climate Change on Irrigated Potato Production in Europe: Elevated ozone concentrations generally reduce crop productivity and yield.  How might they, and other predicted environmental changes, influence irrigated potato yield responses to atmospheric CO2 enrichment?

Effects of Elevated CO2 and Soil Nitrogen Content on Nodulated and Non-Nodulated Soybeans: Does nitrogen supply make a difference?  Does nodulation make a difference?  Does their interaction make a difference?
