More Intimations of a Human Longevity Dependence on Atmospheric CO2 Concentration: New research findings on the role of ozone and other oxidants in plaque formation in human arteries stimulates us to think once again, i.e., speculate, about the role of the ongoing rise in the air's CO2 content on this ubiquitous life-threatening phenomenon.

Subject Index Summaries
Medieval Warm Period (Asia: Miscellaneous): As we round out our review of the evidence for the existence of the Medieval Warm Period in Asia, the climate-alarmist picture of "unprecedented" 20th-century global warming is beginning to look more and more like what it really is: an unprecedented effort to rewrite history.

Nitrogen Fixation (Herbaceous Plants): As the air's CO2 content continues to rise, will it stimulate the process by which atmospheric nitrogen (N2) is fixed (converted into a form useable by plants) by the symbiotic bacteria living in nodules attached to the roots of herbaceous legumes?

Journal Reviews
A Century of Sea Level Rise At New Zealand: Over the past century of what climate alarmists typically describe as having experienced unprecedented global warming (relative to the past millennium), which they further claim to have been greatest over the past quarter-century, the rate of sea level rise would be expected to have accelerated recently.  Did it?

Millennial-Scale Cycling of the East Asian Monsoon: A new study demonstrates linkages of the East Asian Monsoon with millennial-scale climatic oscillations of the North Atlantic and tropical Pacific Oceans.

Holocene Climate in the Indian Ocean: What relation does it bear to the Holocene climate of the North Atlantic Ocean?

Volcanic Eruptions and Forest Productivity: How do the former affect the latter?

Impact of Climate Change on Malaria Transmission in Africa: Has close to a century of experience and data acquisition in Africa indicated the planet faces a resurgence of the deadly disease in response to global warming, as many climate alarmists have argued?
