What I like about this is how some archeologists are having fun in Greenland
going over villages that are now appearing where the ice is retreating.

Interestingly enough, they aren't finding evidence that the native people
then had SUV's and corporate jets... but they did apparently have
significantly higher temps, as evidenced by the fact that there wasn't any
ice there when they set up a village.
