    Ah, but, you see, the scientists back then couldn’t have been proper climate scientists – where were their grant funds or their peer-reviewed papers . . .

    Evil dinosaur farts put the planet in peril!

    The planets had stable orbits in prehistoric times!

    There was great variations in CO2 data too until the Climate Criminals got a hold of the data.
    Two important observations were made in these early studies. It was found that the CO2 content of the air trapped in pre-industrial and ancient ice is rather high, and has a very wide concentration range of about 100-7400ppm (Table 1). Even more important was the finding that several physical and chemical processes (such as melting, the presents of liquid brines in capillary-like interstitial voids, the presence of carbonates, over-pressure in the air bubbles, and solid deposition of super-cooled fog, combined with large differences of solubility of different gases in cold water, and mobility of CO2 in ice) lead to differentiation of the original atmospheric ratios of N2 O2 Ar and CO2, and to depletion or enrichment of CO2 in the ice (coachman et al., 1958; Hemmingsen 1959; Scolander et al., 1961; Matsuo and miyake, 1966: Raynaud and delmas, 1977)…. Three different methods of gas extraction were used, and they produced different results. This is illustrated in Fig.2. It can be seen that in air from the same section of a pre-industrial ice core, after 7h ‘wet’extraction of melted ice, the CO2 concentration was up to about 1000 ppm, and it was 1.5-4.5-times higher than after the 15 min ‘wet’extraction. The ‘dry’extraction, consisting in crushing or shaving the ice samples at about -20c, produced results similar to the 15 min ‘wet’extraction. The short ‘wet’and the ‘dry’ extractions recovered about a half or less of the total CO2 present in the ice…

    Once, long ago, there were scientists. Their wisdom endures.
