The BBC presenter was quick to point out that we’re almost at this dangerous boundary—earlier this month the UK’s Met Office predicted global temperatures will rise more than 1˚C by the end of 2015. The record-breaking heat of the last 10 months suggests 2015 will be Earth’s warmest year in history
Tol now suggests the idea that the world would likely benefit from anything up to 2˚C of warming as “a bit too optimistic.”
Even using wildly fraudulent Phil Jones/ Met Office data, this is nowhere near the warmest year in history, and there is nothing dangerous about warming. Earth was much warmer 6,000 years ago, and civilization thrived in a “climate optimum.”
Paleoclimatologists have long suspected that the “middle Holocene” or a period roughly from 7,000 to 5,000 years ago, was warmer than the present day. Terms like the Alti-thermal or Hypsi-thermal or Climatic Optimum
The Middle East was fertile with temperatures much warmer than now.
7,000 years ago (5000 BC): late Neolithic civilizations, invention of the wheel and spread of proto-writing. The oldest golden treasure found in Varna Necropolis, Bulgaria.
6,000 years ago (4000 BC): Civilizations develop in the Mesopotamia/Fertile crescent region (around the location of modern day Iraq). The american mastodon goes extinct. Earliest supposed dates for the domestication of the horse and for the domestication of the chicken.
These flaming morons claim that 2C is catastrophic and man-made, when historical evidence shows that it is completely natural and more conducive to civilization.
