POV removal[edit]

On the recent addition by RonCram. Ron, you are adding your own POV to the page... Let me itemize them:

often cited
This paper isn't cited often. There are 79 citations to this one - so few that it comes in at page 3 on a Google scholar search for Broeckers papers. (the topmost has 555 citations). His 2006 conference paper "The Great Conveyer" is cited 296 times.
If MWP was truly global, then the warmer temperatures experienced in the last 30 years may be considered unexceptional.
Whether or not the MWP was global - has no bearing on your statement that it was warmer - which isn't the current scientific opinion.
Regarding predictions of future catastrophic global warming
This one is really bad - "catastrophic" is entirely your own invention. His statement is on mode-changes (or abrupt changes), something that isn't captured in models - from my readings you can equate this with Hansen's "tipping points".

Please try to have an NPOV attitude when writing. --Kim D. Petersen 05:00, 1 January 2007 (UTC)
