Our ability to understand the natural variability of the Earth’s climate before modern anthropogenic greenhouse warming relies on establishing a public network of reliable proxy-temperature records from across the terrestrial and oceanic regions of the world. The PAGES 2k Network ( has been successful in extending our knowledge of the Earth’s temperature variability back 2000 years, and Climate-12k was established in December 2018 to further extend it back to 12,000 years before present.
