An April 2007 study revealed the Earth’s climate “seesawing” during the last 10,000 years, according to Swedish researchers Svante Björck, Karl Ljung and Dan
Hammarlund of Lund University.
These scientists appear to have been wrongly included on the 650 list just because someone thought their research was skeptical of manmade global warming. From the blog Uppsalainitiativet we learn that these scientists are not too happy about their inclusion on the list:

The citations on the EPW List don't come from nowhere. They are always based on some media article or blog post somewhere. So on a hunch I went over to wattsupwiththat.com and went back to April 30th 2007, the day that the sciencedaily article was released and started flipping forward.
So here's the story of how Svante Björck, Karl Ljung and Dan Hammarlund got onto the EPW list. Or rather here's my guess at how it really happened:
- Svante Björck, Karl Ljung and Dan Hammarlund announce their research which appears on a number of online news sites.
- Because it contains the statement "These results imply that Europe may face a slightly cooler future than predicted by IPCC, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change" it gets jumped on by the skeptic blogs.
- The skeptic blogs load it with words it doesn't even say or support.
- Because it's been featured on skeptic blogs it gets auto-collected onto the EPW list of 650, probably without a second check.
