Here is some historical perspective on the “unprecedented” global warming. To understand the effects of global warming we merely need to see what happened when the Earth was warmer than it is today. The last major warming period was the medieval warming period which dwarfed even the worst case scenarios of global warming alarmists. During this period, 800 – 1200 AD, there were no rising sea levels. Polar bears did not become extinct. Island nations were not swallowed up by the sea, and no mass starvation. In fact this warming period accounted for a major upswing in human advancement. Crops were able to be grown longer and farther north. Vikings were able to grow crops in Greenland, hence the name. The warming period helped Europe out of the dark ages because of longer growing seasons and the warmer climate allowed for greater mobility for longer periods of time which created a more suitable environment for trade in larger geographic areas.
Here is a graphic that brings in perspective so called global warming/climate change and that what we are experiencing today is not unusual and in fact not even that remarkable in Earth’s climate history. It proves that climate change and warming periods are just part of Earth’s normal cycle and has nothing to do with human activity. Unless your willing to make the case that Vikings drove SUVs.

No wonder Michael Mann and CRU tried to hide the medieval warming period.
