The IPCC report says that warming of the climate system is unequivocal and since the 1950s many of the observed changes are unpresented over decades to millennia. as Professor Easterbrook says this is an outright lie!. A vast published literature exists showing that recent warming is not only not unusual, but more intense warming has occitted many times in the past centuries and millennia. As a reviewer of the IPCC report, Professor Easterbrook called this to their attention so they cannot have been unaware of it. For example more than 20 periods of warming in the past five centuries can be found in the Greenland GISP2 ice core data (Easterbrook 2011). See Fig 3. Also the Medieval and Roman warm Periods were warmer than recent warming (Fig 4) and about 90 percent of the past 10 000 years were warmer than present(Fig 5)
