SV: Climate change vs BANDits

Uh... do you count China as "North Atlantic" or "southwestern US"? The
MWP is very well documented there, both from climate proxies and
historical records.

I'd not been following this.  I've been very busy, and i took one look
the subject line.  Climate change vs bandits?  or BANDwhatsits?

Just so you all know, I looked into it.  The medieval warming period was

caused by a change in a narrow band of air currents that affected the 
southwestern U.S. and hte North Atlantic.   Ice cores and fossil records
so forth from other parts of the world show taht the warming was not 
worldwide.   However, enough things melted quickly enough in the
Atlantic to destabilize the ocean currents that moderate the climate in
region, and then the sun entered a relatively inactive period.

Earth's climate is seriously dynamically unstable, and it's extremely
to mess with it, in my opinion.  It often takes a relatively minor event
tip the scales.
