And what/how 20th century (or earlier) "observations" might contribute to this.

Assuming that our "solid evidence" is correct - there was a big melt in 1923 and a big freeze in 1938 (and ?? in between) the next question is whether the reconstructions of earlier periods would show those kinds of "spikes" given what happened last summer (a spike downwards).

As a seperate question we also have to ask how the graph that Neil posted includes "observations" from about 1850 onwards and how they are linked to satelites which have been in place only since 1979 ? Should they be on the same graph or noted as being different ?

No fairies involved.

Dragons, now those guys are really unreliable...
