The new climate record provides a valuable framework for many areas of research, he added. It is not only useful for testing climate models, but also for geophysicists studying different aspects of Earth dynamics and paleontologists studying how changing environments drive the evolution of species.

This is interesting and likely represents good scientific effort from the project participants. But the graph is so condensed that it fails to reveal the acknowledged variations, which even Mann's discredited "hockey stick" graph shows in its most detailed presentation. Even in its highly condensed form, the discontinuity in the Eocene-Oligocene transition is clearly visible but unexplained. As many scientific papers say, "more study is needed".

There's also the "'business-as-usual' scenario" reference, which even some of alarmist persuasion have acknowledged is not credible, because real-world business-as-usual continually changes, with the dreaded CO2 emissions already on a downward trajectory in the developed world.

I note the inclusion of the novel term Anthropocene in what is supposedly a science-based graph. Is promoting such new age terminology is part of climate scientists' job description now?

This report could have been so much better had it stuck to science and avoided the political spin.

If you click on the graph in the article, it will zoom up to full screen, making it less condensed and easier to read.

Actually, I did that, but even full screen, with such a long time span it's very condensed. Such graphs obscure as much as they reveal.
