  1. Do you have any data sources for temperature reconstructions from proxies for the pre-thermometer era ?

    1. I do. I've added a link to the NOAA Paleoclimate site, which includes links to the data sources used for numerous reconstructions. The main issue with NOAA Paleoclimate is it's not very user-friendly. You'll need to search for specific reconstructions (i.e. Mann et al. 2008, PAGES 2k).

    2. Many thanks for that. I guess I can do a search there for most of those listed at http://environmentalforest.blogspot.ca/2013/10/enough-hockey-sticks-for-team.html

      Thanks also for the HadCRUT4 fix. I usually use the annual data rather than the monthly data, so that I don't have to worry about seasonal variation.

      I still cannot get your site to 'Notify me' though. Still, 2 out of 3 isn't bad :-)

  2. When posting my comment, I asked it to 'Notify me' but it said it 'An error occurred while contacting the server'

  3. The HadCRUT4 link doesn't work for the new version. It should be http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/hadobs/hadcrut4/data/current/time_series/HadCRUT.4.4.0.0.monthly_ns_avg.txt

    1. Thanks for the note. I decided to fix that one by linking to the MET's main download page rather than the specific data page.
