During the midst of the Northern hemispheric weather anomaly that destroyed Northern and Western Europe after 535AD, people burned ancient rare books and other works of art just to keep warm ~ all to no avail. The Dark Ages ensued and it took that part of the world nearly a thousand years to recover economically to the levels they'd achieved when the Roman Empire ruled the region.

Burning a Mona Lisa to keep warm is sometimes the correct answer.

Just about anything can be rationalized when the conversational deck is stacked through circumstantial cherry picking.
