The two time periods chosen correspond respectively to average temperatures on the Earth's surface that were 4.5°C lower and 2°C higher than today. This first attempt at environmental reconstruction, based on past geological data, provides a serious basis for reflection in the context of the very current problem of global warming due to the anthropogenic greenhouse effect, and could be usefully compared with the results of modelling

Ces documents, dont la coordination générale a été assurée par N. Petit-Maire (CNRS) et Ph. Bouysse (CCGM), ont été réalisés par un groupe de travail international réunissant une quinzaine d’experts.
