Temperatures high in the Norwegian Arctic are above those in a natural warm period in Viking times

The study showed that summertime temperatures on Svalbard were higher now than at any time in the past 1,800 years, including in the Medieval Warm Period from 950 to 1200.

"The data also indicated that the Medieval warming was not uniform across the northern Hemisphere. Studies in Greenland and parts of North America show temperatures were warmer from 950 to 1250 than today."

We didn't expect warming to be uniform.  "Today" keeps changing.  Let's see what we have in two or three years.
