RECONSTRUCTIONSof early Eocene climate depict a world in which the polar environments support mammals and reptiles, deciduous forests, warm oceans and rare frost conditions 1–5. At the same time, tropical sea surface temperatures are interpreted to have been the same as or slightly cooler than present values6. The question of how to warm polar regions of Earth without noticeably warming the tropics remains unresolved; increased amounts of greenhouse gases would be expected to warm all latitudes… Expand
