Global Warming: no problemo


Recommended Posts

"During the Medieval Warm Period, the world was warmer even than today, and history shows that it was a wonderful period of plenty for everyone."

 

In contrast, said Prof Stott, severe famines and economic collapse followed the onset of the Little Ice Age around 1300. He said: "When the temperature started to drop, harvests failed and England's vine industry died. It makes one wonder why there is so much fear of warmth."

Great catch. Just more proof that the earth warms and cools in cycles. Just like the market. When we get into a serious cooling trend, will the enviros want us all to drive our cars more? That would be most amusing.

This theory that the famine and the black plague of the 14th century was caused by global cooling is interesting. According to the mainstream theory, the famine was caused by overpopulation. The spread of the black plague was supposed to be caused by growing trade and contact within Europe.

 

What does this mean for global warming?

 

Nothing!

 

Western Europe profits from a warm current in the Atlantic Ocean. Warm surface water flows to the North-East of the Atlantic. In the North Atlantic, this water cools and sinks to become a deep water mass. The deep water mass flows southwards. If the North Atlantic becomes warmer, the circulation of water in the Atlantic may become less, which may even lead to a colder Western Europe.
