Storminess Of The Little Ice Age

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

By Paul Homewood

With the recent run of stormy weather in the UK, it is worth reflecting on just how stormy it was during the Little Ice Age, and even before.

Brian Fagan, in his book “The Little Ice Age”, states that,”throughout Europe, the years 1560-1600 were cooler and stormier, with late wine harvests and considerably stronger winds than those of the 20th Century. Storm activity increased by 85% in the second half of the 16th Century and the incidence of severe storms rose by 400%.”.

HH Lamb comes to similar conclusions, “there was a greater intensity, and a greater frequency, of intense storm development during the Little Ice Age”, in his book “Historic Storms of the North Sea, British Isles and Northwest Europe”.

Edward Bryant, in the book, “Natural Hazards”, gives us a rundown of some of the biggest storms:-

  • Four storms…

Shock News 1934 : The World’s Climate Changing

Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the
industrialized civilizations collapse?
Isn’t it our responsibility to bring that about
?”
– Maurice Strong,
founder of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP)

We’ve got to ride this global warming issue.
Even if the theory of global warming is wrong,
we will be doing the right thing in terms of
economic and environmental policy.

– Timothy Wirth,
President of the UN Foundation

The fact that during last year 81 of 100 Swiss glaciers decreased in size did not in any way indicate that the earth was becoming warmer and drier, said professor H. C. Richards, Professor of Geology at the Queensland University, yesterday, commenting on a message from Geneva concerning a world-wide drought. Even if the observations of Swiss glaciers were continued over a period of 50 years, he said, the data obtained could not warrant any general statement that the world as a whole was becoming drier or warmer.

Investigations of geological records [show] clearly established cyclic changes in climates to which any particular portion of the earth’s surface was subjected. Australia, for example, had experienced at least four periods of great refrigeration, with accompanying glacial conditions.

23 Jun 1934 – WORLD’S CHANGING CLIMATE Unsafe To Generalise

CO² at the time was ~ 310 PPM.

Entire regions undergoing rapid glacial retreat, mere cycles of the earth system, no cause for alarm. In 1934, scientists did actual science.

In the modern era of post-normal science, with billions of dollars of CO2-centric funding at stake and reputations to advance, it makes perfect sense to generalise that carbon dioxide pollution is the only thing responsible for the world’s changing climateWho cares that the “geological records [show] clearly established cyclic changes in climates..”

In 1945, the planet was again experiencing radical climate change :

Monday 22 January 1945

Throughout the world the climate is changing,” Mr. Cotsworth continued. “The glaciers of Alaska and Western Canada are retreating. The great Sahara Desert is moving south, drying up Nigerian rivers and the lakes of western Sudan. Australia’s deserts are increasing. The ice cap along the Antarctic, opposite Australia and New Zealand, is receding. Mr. Cotsworth is of the opinion that the greatest single factor governing climatic changes in the Northern Hemisphere is the ice cap on Greenland.

22 Jan 1945 – THE WORLD’S CHANGING CLIMATE – Glaciers retreating, ice caps melting, deserts growing.

CO² at the time was ~ 320 PPM.

In today’s enlightened world of Government funded climate science, Mr. M. B. Cotsworth would have been stripped of funding, excommunicated from the field, publicly vilified for dissent against the orthodoxy, posted up on DeSmogBlog and labelled a denier for claiming radical climate change was due to anything other than man-made carbon dioxide pollution.
