Mann Creates A Roman Hockey Stick

“Like any large civilization — including the civilization we have today — it (Roman Empire) was highly dependent on predictability of natural resources,” Mann says. “It was very heavily adapted to the climate conditions that had persisted for centuries.”

The Roman Empire extended from Hadrian’s Wall to the Red Sea, but no doubt the climate was consistent across the entire region, and for centuries at a time. Apparently the Romans were very sensitive, and could only survive temperatures between 24 and 27C. Thank you Mike for another work of mind-numbing drivel.

    If you put Man and Romm associated with a report it will equate to a fairy tale and not even a good one at that. Basically the temperatures were warmer but they had their share of “Weather” as is provided in historic records from those days. They probably experienced about the same extremes we experience today.

    Since we’re in the business of re-writing history…….

    The Roman Empire was overrun by Barbarian hordes, led by Atilla the Hun, following an economic collapse caused by the wide-scale imposition of Carbon taxes…….

    OT

    Michele Bachmann will deliver her own response to Obama’s State of the Union Tuesday night…..

    even though Republicans chose Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin) for the official rebuttal

    What does that look like a gaff that he gets hooked on?

  6. Les Johnson says:

    Funny that Mann does not elaborate that the climate change associated with the fall of the Romans was a COOLING.

    Or that most civilizations falls can be linked to food shortages from COOLING.

    Or that most periods of conflicts can be linked to COOLING.

    Or that a civilizations rise is usually linked to a WARMING period.

    Mann’s hockey stick is now pointing south!
