Paleoclimate studies from speleothems that have high enough resolution to show recent changes in climate show the recent rise in global temperature. Not all speleothems record temperature, however, so some show changes in other variables like rainfall.

In general, from paleoclimate studies and modern climate studies, we know that climate change is happening, and it is assuredly man-made. It is going to be really bad for a lot of people, plants, and animals, and the oceans in general. It's not too late to change behavior, but it will take a lot of folks changing individually as well as governments agreeing to shift away from fossil fuels.

Isotopes in Palaeoenvironmental Research (Developments in Paleoenvironmental Research)

This book has a chapter about isotopes and speleothems, you may find it in a library and have a look if it's useful.

Any references or data from these studies? I would love to check this out , are you familiar with any of the studies or authors of academic papers on the subject ? I'm not really interested in the politics, just the findings of the studies.

Wow are you a psychic ?
How did you answer before my question

Thanks for the reference will check it out? Any where that I can read it online? Seems kinda obscure, Topeka public library might not have it. Might check out the university library also.

Eta looks like good reading to understand process. Kinda spendy to settle my personal curiosity.
Hope it's in a library near by.

Lol no special powers (yet) :laughing: it's just that as a new user my answer was "on hold" (awaiting mod approval) since a few days.
Unfortunately I don't think it's available online.
