Reported at Science Daily News. The Oxford University team found a nice place to do research. I hope they dined at dusk by one of the roulottes on the Papeete waterfron.
Up to 15 degrees Celsius? The Tahitian data may indirectly substantiate that but it's early days still. Remember the story that the Black Sea filled almost 60 meters suddenly 6400 years ago? That's been revised to a slow fill from 9000 years ago with a sudden 10 meter top-up about 6400 years ago. Still newsworthy.
