Unstoppable global warming: every 1,500 years
Singer and Avery present in popular language supported by in-depth scientific evidence the compelling concept that global temperatures have been rising mostly or entirely because of a natural cycle. Using historic data from two millennia of recorded history combined with the natural physical records found in ice cores, seabed sediment, cave stalagmites, and tree rings, Unstoppable Global Warming argues that the 1,500 year solar-driven cycle that has always controlled the earth's climate remains the driving force in the current warming trend. Trillions of dollars spent on reducing fossil fuel use would have no effect on today's rising temperatures. The public policy key, Singer and Avery propose, is adaptation, not fruitless attempts at prevention. Further, they offer convincing evidence that civilization's most successful eras have coincided with the cycle's warmest peaks. With the added benefit of modern technology, humanity can not only survive global climate change, but thrive.

They conducted a metanalysis of the research on physical evidence of the last
climate cycle, the Medieval Warming/Little Ice Age. They found 112 studies
containing information about the medieval warm period. Of these, 92 percent

from 850 to 1 150, followed by a sharp cooling from 1200 ... 80 The team found a
strong warming from 700 to 1000, corresponding to the Medieval Warm Period.

There used to be farms on Greenland -- just about 1000 years ago, well within the historical record. That's why they called it 'Green'-land. Now, of course, Greenland is too cold, but the ruins of the ... Read full review
