I hope you all had a chance to catch the zinger at the end of Vardiman's

"None of the small temperature changes discussed above compare to those
which likely occurred after the Genesis Flood. It has been shown that
the ocean temperature at the end of the Genesis Flood was likely as warm
as 100oF or more.5 Such a warm ocean would be an explanation for the Ice
Age because of the excessive evaporation of water into the atmosphere
and deposition of snow in the polar regions and on mountaintops that
would have occurred. An ocean with a SST equal to or greater than 100oF
would also likely have produced large frequencies and intensities of
hurricanes beyond anything experienced today. It has been shown that
giant hurricanes called hypercanes would likely have occurred over major
portions of the earth.6 They would have grown to hundreds of miles in
diameter, produced horizontal winds of over 300 miles per hour, had
vertical winds of 100 miles per hour, and precipitated rain at rates
greater than 10 inches per hour. Large amounts of erosion of the
unconsolidated sediments would have occurred on the continents following
the Flood. In this context, today's increasing hurricane activity
represents a minor oscillation in the steady-state condition at the end
of about 5,000 years of cooling."

"Hypercanes" Larry, what is in the water in San Diego?

If this is it,

there's a typo that would interest Freud, in addition to the bogus
science. (Foram skeletons are actually called tests, so you can guess
what the web page has.) I have no idea how he selected the isotopic
data to get the curve shown, but it doesn't match the actual isotopic

It also seems to neglect the fact that sea surface temperature is not
uniform globally, though I don't think this affects the argument.
