Correcting the Central Errors (and Fraud) in Conventional CO2 Theory of Global Warming
For background, I would recommend to read or view the following.
* "The Little Ice Age: Big Chill DVD" History Channel documentary
* "The Little Ice Age" by Brian Fagan
* "The Great Warming" by Brian Fagan
* "The Little Ice Age" by Jean M. Grove
* "The Medieval Warm Period" edited by Hughes and Diaz
Fagan's books are the most gripping and easy to read, and also not so expensive as the more scholarly textbook presentations by Jean Grove, who did the original and best work documenting the Little Ice Age. Or the more recent one by Hughes & Diaz. Though it is funny how Fagan inserted disclaimers in the front and back pages of his popular books to say his work doesn't negate the CO2 theory of global warming. That is nonsense, however, as his book is most surely one massive punch in the nose for the "hockey stick" graphic, which is central to the CO2 theory, and which unethically and deceptively erased the Medieval Warm Period (MWP) and Little Ice Age (LIA) from existence. Possibly Fagan's publisher forced him to add those disclaimers.
Due to its early time period, between 800 to 1300 AD, the MWP could not have been triggered by industrial greenhouse gases which only began to soar in the late 1800s. And if one wishes to invoke some other anthropogenic cause to the MWP, such as tree cutting or similar, it still makes no sense as the LIA came thereafter, between 1400 to 1850 AD. Much of the current warming today reflects merely the rise in temperatures experienced since the end of the LIA, a rise which still has not exceeded what existed during the MWP.
And furthermore, these works show that even more global warming today would not bring about a catastrophe. The MWP was a time of good crops, abundance, economic growth and exploration, innovations in architecture and building, scientific development. The LIA was by comparison a time of crop failures, famine, pestilence, economic decline, massive storms in the Atlantic and Pacific, inhibiting trade, and similar, even though such challenges led to new innovations to overcome them. But... don't take my word for it, read those books and view the DVD.
It should be emphasized also, these major climate transitions, the MWP and LIA, were global and persisting in nature, over hundreds of years, and not some localized or regional fluke.
My suggestion is, get the DVD and view it. Then read the two books by Fagan. By then you will have an excellent overview exposure of just what has been censored out of the public media and "politically corrected" textbooks on this subject. You'll then also become fully immune to the garbage being thrown out into the public about boiling oceans, drowned coastal cities, exterminated penguins and polar bears, and other climate doom and gloom. And if you are a professional in the field of climate science, of course the books by Grove, and by Hughes and Diaz are not optional, but mandatory, even if they are a bit outdated. The foundational principles, of the existence of these major pre-industrial climate transitions is most essential for understanding the facts about real climate changes, which are driven more by Solar Variation than anything else.
And if you have a kid in school, definitely show them the DVD, as most likely they only get the conventional views of CO2 hysteria.
I would also openly ask everyone on the OBRL lists who has studied climate or weather in the universities if they even know about this kind of documentation, on the MWP and LIA, or if it was censored out of their classes and textbooks, in accordance with the politically-fabricated "hockey stick" graphic?
One last book I will highly recommend, on one of the most severe and destructive global climate changes to occur in the last 10,000 years, and its influence on human societies.
* "Saharasia: The 4000 BCE Origins of Child Abuse, Sex-Repression, Warfare and Social Violence, In the Deserts of the Old World" by James DeMeo
That's my book, of course, and it is absolutely mandatory for anyone with interests in Wilhelm Reich's work, and contemporary social issues. Saharasia provides documentation, better than anything else you could reference, on the major climate change of c.4000-3500 BCE, (~6000 years ago), when the large Saharasian Desert Belt was formed within about one hundred years, triggering massive changes in human migrations, settlement patterns, social institutions and character structure. That big climate change, the largest ever since the end of the Pleistocene Ice Age, even more profound than the MWP or LIA, is also widely ignored by modern climatology pushing the CO2 theory. As with Reich's work in a more general manner, it is all erased from open discussion except within a few brave university departments that have not yet succumbed to the new "politically corrected" and falsified climatology.
