Climate was HOTTER in Roman, medieval times than now: Study

Muncher23

I always thought that it was a lack of rain that made a desert not the temp. Antartica is the world's most desert place so by your logic since Egypt is now a desert it must be a lot colder.

It shouldn't take you long to trace this meme -- maybe Hansen and 'coal trains as death trains' would do as a start

Re: Every one is an expert..

Also there may have been some part way place, gloomy but not dark, where being darker in colour was a distinct disadvantage, possible mates can't see you as you blend into the background. So in the gloomy zone the dark individulas live at the well lit end and the pale individuals live at the dar end, add a few million years and we have 2 different species. Marginal areas, like tidal zones, put all sorts of interesting survival pressure into play.

Rewrite History Much?

“many signs pointing to the possibility that the Earth may be headed for another ice age” (The New York Times, August 14, 1975), moving “toward extensive Northern Hemisphere glaciations” (Science, December 10, 1976) and facing “continued rapid cooling of the Earth” (Global Ecology, 1971) and “the approach of a full-blown 10,000-year ice age” (Science, March 1, 1975). [A] new ice age must now stand alongside nuclear war as a likely source of wholesale death and misery” (International Wildlife, July 1975) and that “the world’s climatologists are agree” that we must “prepare for the next ice age” (Science Digest, February 1973). Newsweek reported (April 28, 1975) “ominous signs” that “the Earth’s climate seems to be cooling down” and meteorologists “are almost unanimous” that “the trend will reduce agricultural productivity for the rest of the century.”
