On January 14, 2018, an article titled Global Warming is Going to Demolish Economies & Societies was published.
The article claims that our NOT warming planet is going to destroy the modern world as we know it.
However, their story is full of a bunch of nonsense as usual. According to the graph below, we can see that the ancient empires tended to thrive in warm times; Ancient Egypt, Classical Greece, Rome, the Maya Empire, the Viking Age of Exploration, the Medieval Times, (and today).
During the Viking’s age of exploration (at the same time as the Medieval Warm Period), they landed on Greenland and farmed there. After 100 or so years, a change in climate patterns led to the ‘Little Ice Age.’ Each time the climate turned a corner and became cold, empires fell. Ancient Egypt fell, Greece was in the Dark Ages, and Rome burned as soon as a Grand Solar Minimum cycle started.
