But: the 1981-2010 average was +0.364 degrees warmer than the 1951-1980 baseline, meaning the MWP was +0.055 degrees warmber than the 30 years from 1981 to 2010.
And: the twenty years from 1991 to 2011 was +0.445 warmer than the 1951-1980 standard baseline. Meaning 1991 to 2011 was +0.257 degrees warmer than the Medieval Warm Period.
How about the last eleven years - the time when Little Fish says it didn't get any warmer? Those years were 0.548 degrees warmer than the baseline, or 0.129 degrees warmer than the Medieval Warm Period.
Chistiansen and Ljungqvist's data ends in 1960. The modern temperature excursion, what is usually meant by the term "Global Warming," began in 1976. Using that study to refute global warming is comparing apples and ornages: a kindergarten mistake.
