Even in 1934 Switzerland, there were 15 global warming denialists!!
In the medieval warming, the glaciers in Iceland were much much less then today. There were times in the Holocene when ice only existed on the peaks of Iceland’s mountains and nowhere else. There were other times when ice surrounded Iceland.
Climate changes, and it’s so stupid this small changes and connecting it to CO2
Interesting, that reference to world-wide drought – wasn’t 1934 supposed to be a U.S.-only phenomenon?
The following article presents an interesting analysis of the “Great Drought” – and guess what – CO2 doesn’t get a metion. Clearly they were a lot saner back then.
“Probing the secrets of the Great Drought”
Here are a selection of the headlines during the “world-wide drought”. (There are dozens for USA and England).
January – England
January – South Africa
March – New Zealand
May – USA
May – South Australia
May – USA & Canada
May – Europe
May – Russia
May – “The World”
June – “The World” – still
“The disaster has been felt from the Mississippi to the Volga, and from the Jugoslavian valleys to the West Canadian prairies.”
June – Europe – Does any of this sound familiar?
“Reports from Belgrade relate that three months’ drought and terrific heat have caused a revival of ancient pagan rainmaking rites in many parts of south-eastern Europe.”
June – Germany
June – London’s worst drought in 180 years
July – China
July – South-west Japan
August – Victoria
Please post these under the “Historical References” tab so that they don’t get lost.
Those locations were part of the US in 1934 just like 95% of the Northern Hemisphere was in Western Europe this past winter!
