Medieval warming WAS global new science contradicts IPCC
The Register ^ | 23rd March 2012 | Lewis Page

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.”

The Milankovitch Glaciation Cycle

has held up quite well since the hypothesis was first offered in 1918. It is generally accepted by Mathematicians, Geologists, Geo-Physicists, Archaeologists, Paleontologists, Astronomers, Astrophyicists etc. In fact, the only segment in which it is not accepted seems to be among Prius-owner Left-Wing "Climatologists," who usually turn out to have been Poetry Majors.

This and the Maunder Sunspot Cycle just about handle every climate change exigency!

I have put together a short PowerPoint presentation on it, which I show to groups around the community. Now I am forced to go about in a disguise and I am followed everywhere by a Prius that has a very un-aerodynamic noose on the aerial!

So the question of how King Arthur's men acquired coconuts in England has finally been solved. No swallows necessary.

The libs don’t catch up. They make more noise and get more laws passed and more court orders.

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.

I knew the Sahara had been fertile grasslands just a few thousand years ago - there are cave paintings of men hunting large herbivores in lush grass, in what is now barren waste. Well into historical times, Northern Africa was the bread basket of the Roman Empire. Literally, as the grain that was shipped to Rome and distributed as bread to the Roman masses came from there.

But I recently saw a program about the Sahara, that said it not only used to have grass, but vast river systems, and lakes that rivaled the Great Lakes - in surface area, if not volume. It also said that the Sahara has swung from one extreme, to the other, many times, probably due to variations in the Earth's tilt. We are at a very dry point in the cycle, but 10,000 years ago the Sahara was lush and green, and it will be again 10,000 years hence.

I looked for a graphic of the data from this new paper, and could not locate it. They want $40 for the pdf, from where I stand.

If someone has seen their graphics, I ask that they make a fast sketch (freehand on Paint or whatever) of what their data shows for temperatures in the Antarctic history, post it here, and ping me.

Thanks

The coal was probably formed at least 200 million years ago when Antarctica was not located at the south pole.

What’s the source of that graph? I’d like to digg it or otherwise spread it via social media.

It's from my large collection of political graphics, so I don't know exactly where I originally got it. However, I've found you a current source to cite, if you'd like to use it:

I hope you’re kidding.

You never want to make an Greenie look bad. To talk about "Climate Change," and to be unaware of the Milankovitch Glaciation Cycle means the Greenie is automatically stuffed with taurine faeces.

Let's just say I am not lunching with certain acquaintances these days.
