Study shows it was warmer in Roman times than today

Scientists may have figured out why Romans wore togas and the global warming theorists are not going to be pleased. A new study by Swiss scientists finds the earth was warmer during Roman and Medieval times than it is today, which indicates that greenhouse gases may not be the driving force behind the modern global warming trend.

I thought this was already well-established. (No guy is going to walk around without pants on unless it's really hot -- or his wife is the one who wears the pants in the family)

Well, I guess it doesn't hurt to remind the world that global climate change is not new.

I sincerely believe in the process of Global Warming and Global Cooling - as that’s been PROVEN BEYOND ALL DOUBT.

It’s that process of “Anthropogenic Global Warming” that is whacky science and not proven.

It was caused by the farts of horses that pulled Sport Utility Chariots.

Hundreds of years ago, Vikings lived in thriving communities in Greenland. When it cooled off they eventually just about died out.

Nonsense! Only a global tax on the rich fro their carbon emissions can solve out problems! (Never mind the snow in Cairo and Jeruselem)

Somebody needs to give these so called chicken little “scientists” and “experts” a history book. “Climate change” is a natural occurrence. It has been happening since the Earth was created. Human beings can’t do one thing to stop it. Anyone who thinks they can stop or alter “climate change” really needs to lay of the recreational drugs for a while.

I believe that this is strong evidence for the existence of God.

He loves us so much that He did not want us to see Al Gore or Michael Moore wearing togas.

B-O-B is the driving force behind global warming!

Right. That’s why they named it Greenland.

Greenland used to be.... well....Green...

One would have to jump to the conclusion it was warmer...I know we need someone as smart as Al Gore to confirm that...

The Romans even had vineyards in southern England back then.

Jesus & His disciples walked up & down Israel several times, often sleeping in the open. Snow was only mentioned 3 times in the New Testament, all in reference to "as white as snow", indicating that the reader should have been familiar with snow, but no indication that it affected daily (winter) life. The "snow of Lebanon" is mentioned, but the elevations there go over 10,000'

Of course it was warmer. That's why polar bears went extinct 2,000 years ago. The polar caps melted, all the polar bears drowned because they can't swim, and that was the end of a species.

Eric the Red brought the first settlers to Greenland in the year 986. The colony collapsed in about 1400.

No, seriously. You see guys walking around wearing shorts just about every day of the year — while the wives are in jeans and sneakers.

You just want to ask, “What the he|| is wrong with you, dude?”

True. Also, early explorers to the new world, Jacques Cartier for instance, wrote in their journals (back in 1534) about finding grape vines in areas near the mouth of the St. Lawrence River where they don't exist naturally today.

What is not said is that the H2’s in roman and medieval times had coal fired power plants/engines.

Anybody with half a brain has known that this liberal bilge about global warming, then evolved into climate change and sometimes now evolved into climate crisis, has been a big con game/scam from the beginning. It is to redistribute wealth (liberals, progressives) or enrich the con artists personally (Al Gore types). This has nothing to do with man as a cause and is only "green" as it relates the the greenbacks these snake oil salesmen pocket into their wallets. Notice how Al Gore and his fellow travelers disappear and keep their heads down real low to avoid the shots from critics when the weather turns cold? Why anyone ever fell this crap is beyond me.  photo GlobalWarmism3_zps999b90c4.jpg
