Canadian Arctic Ice Retreats and Exposes Plant Life From Before 1550.

Doesn’t this sound ominous! “ice” retreat” has “sharply accelerated since 2004″.

“Across the Canadian Arctic Archipelago, widespread ice retreat during the 20th century has sharply accelerated since 2004.

In Sverdrup Pass, central Ellesmere Island, rapid glacier retreat is exposing intact plant communities

whose radiocarbon dates demonstrate entombment during the Little Ice Age (1550–1850 AD).”

 

Except …. doesn’t that mean the plant communities were thriving before 1550?

And that means the Medieval Warm Period existed. And that current ice melt is just a return to normal?
