Short summary
In this study, we use climate modeling to investigate the relative impact of CO2 and orbit on Early Eocene (~ 55 million years ago) climate and compare our modeled results to fossil records to determine the context for the Paleocene–Eocene Thermal Maximum, the most extreme hyperthermal in the Cenozoic. Our conclusions consider limitations and illustrate the importance of climate models when interpreting paleoclimate records in times of extreme warmth.
