Global Cooling Not So Good

Chester McAteer

Think about this for just a moment, at the end of 2017 researchers discovered that the island of Zhokhov, once a peninsula, in the high Arctic was forested with a species of birch trees and inhabited by various types of warm weather flora and fauna just 9000 ybp until about 4800 ybp when the climate became so cold that nothing grew on the island. Today nothing grows but certain types of lichen. The now uninhabitable area was inhabited by humans who enjoyed temperatures at least 4°- 6°C hotter than current temperatures just in the high Arctic, the Tropical temperatures were much higher of course. An interesting point is that the humans hunted Polar Bears, Seals and Walrus in an Arctic that was almost free of sea ice for most of the year.

Oh, the poor polar bears! They have been around for an estimated 1.7 million years and survived every climate whether warm or cold. Does that raise any questions in your mind given the current ideas about global warming? Obviously, temperatures today are nowhere close to what they once were otherwise, the island of Zhokhov would once again be habitable by forms of flora and fauna as it once was during the Holocene Optimal. It’s called Observable Evidence.

Temperatures peaked between 7800 and 8200 BC years ago, the period is known as the Holocene Optimal because temperatures were ideal for all plant life, animal and sea life, but since the peak temperatures they have been falling to the point that our temperatures today are closer to those during the period immediately after the end of the last ice age than to those of the peak during the Holocene Maximum.

From the peak temperatures of the Holocene Optimal they dropped to the Minoan Warming Period, then cooler to the Roman Warming Period. Between the Minoan and Roman Warming Periods Scandinavia and Northern Russia enjoyed a Mediterranean like climate.

During the Roman Warming temperatures were high enough for the Romans to import ancient Mediterranean wine grape vines and cultivate them in the northern part of Britain, not only that but there is evidence that Mediterranean wine grape vines were cultivated in Finland and Northern Russia. That's impossible in today's cold temperatures.

After the Roman Warming Period came the Medieval Warming Period, it was so warm during that time the Vikings colonized Greenland and thrived, importing ancient European Barley, they grew fruit trees, many of the roots can be found in Viking graves and warm weather vegetables until once again it became too cold and they starved.

Fruit tree roots have been found in Viking graves, but instead of arable land, today that same area is permafrost. Few realize that most of the Glaciers were gone or greatly reduced during the Holocene Optimal until they began to greatly advance during the Little Ice Age.

1 Today's Global Warmiacs assume that today's climate is ideal; never stopping to think that it is only the climate that we have now, whereas we have had much better climates in the past. But the Warmiacs are merely idiots who cannot see past their own faces.

2 Agreed Dana. Well, there are two camps; the social revolutionaries who use this and the dupes who believe it. The latter category doesn't grasp that climate is always changing and we have no choice but to adapt.

We need to be grateful; our current climate is GREAT compared to what we endured during the stone age.

3 Not to mention what it was like during the Ice Age...

4 Yawp. It was not an entertaining time to live Dana. And that with nothing but wood to heat your hovel with.
