The earth was warmer in Roman and mediaeval times

"Les savants ne sont pas curieux" (Anatole France)
Very good news! The earth was warmer in Roman and mediaeval times, according to a
study. It is clear that the global warming myth is exactly that, a myth. Like many other
myths our rulers believe in. 

Meanwhile Egypt has had her first snowfall in a hundred years this weekend.

I understood that the Mediaeval Warm Period was settled fact but discover that some scientists now doubt it. On the other hand I thought it was settled that it only affected the Northern Hemisphere, but apparently the 'only in the north' theory came from the warmists, was possible because there wasn't much evidence either way at the time but looks unlikely as more evidence has been collected. Climate change naturally tends to be global, after all.

Perhaps we now can turn to pressing problems and stop letting businessmen make fortunes from public funds building wind farms to disfigure Europe.

Mark Twain said,
"Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect."
These words were never more applicable than in our day, whether to global warming, Nelson Mandela or a hundred other weighty things, many of them too dangerous to mention, for never was it less comfortable to hold maverick views than nowadays. The phrase 'climate change denier' has overtones of 'holocaust denier'.
