Whadda ya think yer doin bringin logic to a debate on climate change ? That'll never work........
The liberals Europeans, and Americans would like to call it "Climate Change"! This way if the scientists said that the earth is cooling, it is because human activities. If another group of scientists said the earth is warming, it is because of the human activities! One way or another, they will regulate something, it does not matter, what it is!
The Global Warming crowd have been attempting to elliminate the "Medieval Optimum" by selective dendrochronology and ice cores... and ignoring the "anecdotal" reports of Wine Grapes growing in Northern climes... and Greenland actually being GREEN. Strangely, when you look at the graphs they came up with that eliminate the "medieval optimum" they also had to eliminate the "little ice age" the extended to the 17th Century...
Certain ancients believed that the sun was a chariot that was pulled across the sky. In the future, people will look back out the "greenhouse effect" and
global warming" in the same way we see ancient beliefs...
The one thing that should be obvious is that the Earth got here before us, and doesn't seem to care about human creature comforts. And it's bigger and meaner than we are...
Well, of course, there was global warming then.
That period was known as the Dark Ages, so people all over Europe lit candles so they could see. All those candles heated the planet. And, with all those candles glowing, Europe came out of the Dark Ages and entered into the Age of Enlightenment.
Apropos of nothing in particular, but it's the truth - in the 13th century there was only one Plague reservoir - Central Asia, where the rats and the fleas had come to a stasis that remains today. Today we have two Plague reservoirs. The second one was created in the 19th century - it's the Southwestern United States.
Sleep tight, kiddies...
Very well written. A little more editing and you could have it published.
Does this mean that Muslims invented biological warfare? Or were there earlier instances.
I also recommend "A Distant Mirror" by Barbara Tuchman.
Actually global climate change are as old as this planet.
110,000 years ago, at the end of the last interglacial (global warming) period, hippopotami frolicked in the Thames, elephants in Trafalger Square and lions at Charing Cross.
The Venetians aided Janibeg in seiging the Genoese, so it could have been one, the other or both.
Wasn't that when they cut down the Sahara Forrest and burned it???
Now the closed society of Mecca and Medina, and little "kingdoms" surrounding, are dying from AIDS, a fitting disease for what some old "scriptures" the Sunni muslims have which call the Wahabbi Muslims from the Arab lands "those who are addicted to the anus".
It also seems the gene which causes fanatics was never completely wiped out by any plague thus far.
It's also interesting to note that "Greenland" at one time lived up to it's name, and other records point to the sea ice in the Hudson Strait having been absent, allowing the passage of Vikings in early times to establish colonies in Canada's north, into central Canada via the Nelson river, as artifacts prove to be pre-dating the Indian.
Right! It was after they froze the evil dinosaurs who were hogging all the food and everything, then they needed to cut down the forests and burn them to warm everything back up!
