A study has shown, however, that those periods, often referred to by climate change sceptics, were different in one crucial way: the extremes of climate were localised. Today’s record temperatures, on the other hand, are found everywhere.

Sceptics have long argued that historical climate variability belies claims that temperatures today are unprecedented. Finding the truth has been hampered by the difficulty of estimating global temperatures before the instrumental record began.

Researchers have now attempted to do so in a systematic way. Their study, published in the journal…
