Using a network of sea surface temperature reconstructions, this study provides the first global estimate of temperature evolution during the last interglaciation from 130,000 years ago to 115,000 years ago when the global sea level is estimated to be several meters higher than today. The results show the global warming was only about 0.5 warmer than the preindustrial period and indistinguishable from that of the last decade, suggesting that significant global sea level rise could occur with relatively minor global temperature increases.
