Skip to comments.Medieval warming WAS global – new science contradicts IPCC
Posted on 03/24/2012 3:17:13 PM PDT by Salman
More peer-reviewed science contradicting the warming-alarmist "scientific consensus" was announced yesterday, as a new study shows that the well-documented warm period which took place in medieval times was not limited to Europe, or the northern hemisphere: it reached all the way to Antarctica.
The research involved the development of a new means of assessing past temperatures, to add to existing methods such as tree ring analysis and ice cores. In this study, scientists analysed samples of a crystal called ikaite, which forms in cold waters.
Ikaite is an icy version of limestone, explains earth-sciences prof Zunli Lu. The crystals are only stable under cold conditions and actually melt at room temperature.

They say science is self-correcting, and so it is. Let's see if the lib politicians can catch up.
The scientists seem to downplay or ignore the Medieval Warm Period.
I’m no scientist, but I have a feeling that there are elements to climate cycles which we just don’t understand.
Heck, we have had numerous ice ages in earth’s history.
Probably there have been periods of warming too.
During the last ice age, Chicago was buried under a mile of ice.
Researchers in Antarctica have found coal. Coal is formed from deposits of organic matter, such as vegetation. At one time Antarctica cleary was not a frozen wasteland.
So, perhaps these guys don’t truly understand all of this, but they have a desire to put society into a straight jacket in various policies, so we can “fight global warming”, and make liberals happy.
The fact is though that it will make little difference to the totalitarian thugs using 'AGW' as a club to batter western civilization.
The article proves IT’S CYCLICAL!
Antarctic had coal deposits for the same reason they found Mastodons with warm climate vegetation in their digestive tract.
The earth’s crust rotated about 30 deg (N to S) putting Antarctic at the south pole and the Mastodons (in Russia) near the new N pole. They basically froze to death within a day or two.
Also explains the Great Flood because if both poles melted they would have done so quickly causing cities to be covered with over 400 feet of water (in some cases - within days or a couple of weeks & other locations experiencing flash flood that wiped out everything instantly.
— Noah — Remember him?
The media thugs who spread the blatant AGW propaganda are proving that even if you can't hide the truth forever, you may be able to hide it long enough to inflict mortal damage on a society. The truth makes no difference when the public hears only lies.
Read the full article. History over rides “consensus”
I have no opinion other than what’s been reported. If you’re suggesting he was murdered I just won’t go there without specific evidence. I’m waiting for the autopsy report like everyone else and hoping the system still has some integrity.
That sums it up better than you may think, Dilbert San Diego. Neither you nor I nor anyone else has anything like a clear, comprehensive picture of our planet's climate. Genuine climate scientists know isolated bits and pieces; how they fit together, however, remains unknown, nor is there any reason to believe they have more than a small percentage of all the bits and pieces that will eventually be known.
The climage pseudo-scientists who jumped on the "anthropogenic global warming" band wagon did both their own corner of science and real scientists the world over a horrible disservice. They whored for Marxists in the name of science. Do you suppose they're sorry? Sorry they got caught, anyway.
Do you suppose other fake scientists are already working on the next impending imaginary disaster for the sake of advancing the anti-religion of Marxism? I'm sure they are.
Thanks for posting this.

|Description||Calcite after Ikaite var. Glendonite concretion.The rock was found at Kola Peninsula, Russia.
Ikaite is a rare mineral that occurs in nature at temperatures up to 7°C in alkaline, phosphate-rich marine and continental waters. Although ikaite has generally been replaced by calcite (this replacement is called glendonite), it has preserved its original crystal shape. Because of the rather restricted conditions under which ikaite/glendonite forms, it serves as a marker for near-freezing water temperatures. Hydrohalite, a form of salt, precipitates at low temperatures from highly saturated brines. It is not well-preserved in sediments because of its high solubility, but its former existence can be inferred from the presence of halite or other minerals that preserve the shape of the original crystals. Minerals are just one of many proxies used by geologists to reconstruct past climates. Some minerals like ikaite define a very narrow set of conditions, while others, like the clays, appear in a number of geologic and climatic settings. Minerals along with other indicators fossils, tree rings, pollen, ice cores, geochemistry or isotopes provide tantalizing clues to ancient climates.
Antarctica froze over 14 million years ago — central Antarctica has pretty much been frozen since the the last real ice age or the peiod known as snowball earth prior to 650mya.
