Carbon leakage could have been heating the planet for 11,000 years, encouraging human civilization

Diatoms like these, microscopic plants with silicic acid shells, had traces of nitrogen in their shells as they grew. Researchers at Princeton University's Sigman Laboratory were able to extract this tiny amount of nitrogen from countless fossil diatoms and create a model of Southern Ocean activity during the Holocene that began about 11,000 years ago.
