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.

Well, I guess it doesn't hurt to remind the world that global climate change is not new.
Of course it was... the romans even planted grapes in northern Britain.
OMG - pure sacrilege.
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.
Well, I guess it doesn’t hurt to remind the world that global climate change is not new.
Yep, the climate changes every day.
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!
B-O-B = Big Orange Ball, aka the sun.
Right. That’s why they named it Greenland.
One would have to jump to the conclusion it was warmer...I know we need someone as smart as Al Gore to confirm that...
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.
Don't go there.... just.... don't go there.
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.
