UK Daily Mail: Earth Heated Up in Medieval Times

Current theories of the causes and impact of global warming have been thrown into question by a new study which shows that during medieval times the whole of the planet heated up.

It then cooled down naturally and there was even a ‘mini ice age’.

A team of scientists led by geochemist Zunli Lu from Syracuse University in New York state, has found that contrary to the ‘consensus’, the ‘Medieval Warm Period’ approximately 500 to 1,000 years ago wasn’t just confined to Europe.

In fact, it extended all the way down to Antarctica – which means that the Earth has already experience global warming without the aid of human CO2 emissions.

At present the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) argues that the Medieval Warm Period was confined to Europe – therefore that the warming we’re experiencing now is a man-made phenomenon.

Climate change realists like myself have been pointing out the medieval warming period for a while now. It’s nice to have yet another study showing that we’re right.  Check out the linked piece, and keep the link handy for debates and such.  It’s on the person-to-person level that we’re winning this debate on the ideological farce that is global warming.

Don’t believe that we’re winning?  Think of the incredibly mild winter we just had, and how relatively little talk of global warming there was.

    What always gets me as well when they claim the Earth is warming is that they can’t say what the average temperature of the Earth is supposed to be. For the last few thousands years, have we been in a relatively cool period? Is the average temperature of the Earth for the last couple hundred million years suppose to be 80? 90? 100?
