According to the Milankovitch theory of global climatic change, maximum summer solar radiation at high latitudes of the Northern Hemisphere occurred at 10,000 yr BP (refs 1, 2). In particular, it predicts summer solstice radiation greater by 9–10%. Preliminary climate simulation experiments with these increased values of radiation confirm that high-latitude… CONTINUE READING
