Reading trees

Some people read books, some read tea leaves but very few can read trees. Seems that dendroclimatologist Ulf Büntgen and his fellow researchers at the Swiss Federal Institute for Forest, Snow and Landscape Research WSL were able for the first time to reconstruct the summer temperatures in central Asia for the past 2,000 years.

This according to the article entitled “Old trees reveal Late Antique Little Ice Age (LALIA) around 1,500 years ago” at Science Daily. Wow, that’s some story!

Sincerely-
