    stating that the temp changes were in the North Atlantic, not globally. that is what I was trying to say.

      Scientific data show that abrupt changes in the climate at the regional scale have occurred throughout history and are characteristic of the Earth’s climate system (NRC, 2002). During the last glacial period, abrupt regional warmings (likely up to 16°C within decades over Greenland) and coolings occurred repeatedly over the North Atlantic region (Jansen et al., 2007). These warmings likely had some large-scale effects such as major shifts in tropical rainfall patterns and redistribution of heat within the climate system but it is unlikely that they were associated with large changes in global mean surface temperature.
