What follows are just a couple of examples from James A. Marusek’s A Chronological Listing of Early Weather Events (may take a few minutes to load).
This is an oustanding work that the warmists’s will not want you to see. (Hat tip reader Ron de Haan).
585 A.D. “Western Europe was so rainy, that it could be confused with
winter. The bulk of the rains this year caused rivers to overflow their banks and flood the fields and meadows. These floods seriously compromised the crop yields.”
994 A.D. “A destructive storm struck London, England, blowing down fifteen hundred buildings and killing several hundred persons. The summers in the years 994 and 995 in Europe produced very high temperatures and a very persistent heat wave. Historians reported that the drought was so terrible that the fish died in the ponds, the trees caught fire, and the fruit and the flax harvest were destroyed. In 995 the greater part of Europe’s rivers were so shallow that you could wade through them. In 994 in Western Europe, the dearth of rain caused the rivers to dry up. It killed the fish in most lakes. It dried up thousands of trees and burned grassland and crops.”
1186 A.D. “In Germany the winter was warmer than had known for a long time. The vegetation was very advanced. The harvest took place in May and the grape harvest in August. In France, the trees were blooming in the middle of winter.”
Recall how alarmists would love have us believe that before man began emitting CO2 the weather was tame and friendly to all of the earth’s inhabitants, and that terrible storms and extremes began only after man embarked on industrialization and the burning of fossil fuels.
Well breadandbutter.com reminds us that extreme weather extremes occurred just as often in the past. Indeed today’s attempt to have us believe that every occuring weather extreme is a sign of man-made climate change just shows how bankrupt the AGW science has become.
