The $100,000 Giant Climate Fluctuation

The GNF theory falls apart when tested against multiproxy temperatures spanning the four centuries from 1500 to 1900. Multiproxy temperatures are estimated from data obtained from thousands of tree rings, bore holes, ice cores, lake sediments, pollen and other indicators of past temperatures.
