Short summary
We reconstruct, for the first time, high-resolution temperatures prior to the Millennium Eruption (946 CE) using a unique tree-ring proxy dataset in Changbai Mountain and compare them with modern temperatures. The temperatures during the last 1.5 centuries have stronger fluctuations, more frequent abruption, and a weaker periodicity of temperature variance compared to the pre-millennium temperatures. These recent changes correspond to long-term anthropogenic influences on regional climate.
