What really caused climate change?
How did Greenland get named "Greenland," when it has been a "whiteland" of glaciers for the last 400 years? The answer is that when Greenland was discovered by the Vikings 1000 years ago it actually was green. The record of history reveals the surprising fact that 1000 years ago the Earth was much warmer than it is today. We also know from historical records that 1000 years ago rising ocean levels were threatening the delta farmlands in Holland forcing the Dutch to build earthen dikes around their farmland to keep the seawater from ruining their crops. Dutch engineers copied windmill designs from the Turks and built windmills to pump the springtime floodwaters over the dikes and into the ocean. It required more than 10,000 windmills to perform this task.
Additionally, we know from historical records that in 1000 A.D. Arab sailors were able to walk the ice-free beaches of Antarctica and collect eggs of nesting shorebirds to use for their morning breakfast. Nautical charts from 1531 A.D. (Oronteus Finaeus Ice-Free Map) show the surprisingly accurate shape, and continental orientation to the tip of South America, of this ice-free continent that Arab sailors had been fishing off the coasts of for centuries. The great prophet Nostradamus lived during this last period of Global Warming, and warned that Global Warming would occur again in the future.
In 1600 A.D. a "Mini Ice Age" reversed the global warming process and restored Antarctica's sea ice, thus lowering elevated sea levels. This Mini Ice Age turned Greenland into the white land we know it as today, and turned the many windmills of Holland into useless relics. Of the original 10,000 windmills that pumped springtime floodwaters in Holland a millennium ago, only about 1100 still exist today and they now serve mostly as tourist attractions. The continent of Antarctica was eventually covered by a layer of ice more than a mile deep, causing the entire continent to disappear from view for the next two centuries. The Antarctic continent wouldn't be rediscovered until 1820, and it was not until 1955 that new technology would allow scientists to determine the true shape of this hidden continent.
All these historical facts and many others tell us that the 1200-year cycle of global warming and cooling, influenced by great Solar Maximums and Minimums, has been going on for thousands of years. Confusion about the issue of Global Warming began when scientists monitoring Earth's temperature noticed a slight increase in the surface temperature of our planet occurring over time accompanied by a rise in carbon levels in our atmosphere. This discovery led scientists to believe that this increase in carbon levels was causing the rise in temperature. It apparently never occurred to anyone that the exact opposite might be true and that the true cause of rising carbon levels might be Global Warming itself.
An in depth study of natural history will reveal that Global Warming after Earth's numerous Ice Ages produced drastic increases in carbon levels all over our planet. Deep ice core samplings from Earth's polar caps clearly demonstrate that carbon levels during the warmth of the Jurassic Period were over 4 times higher than they are today. It is therefore a fact that reducing our planet's carbon output will not halt the Global Warming process. Scientists receiving their paychecks from large corporations and their friends in government have been desperately trying to dispute these historical facts to protect their jobs, but the facts speak for themselves.
Although reducing carbon emissions will not slow Global Warming, this present warming cycle cannot be ignored. Steadily rising sea levels, and warmer river water flowing into the sea due to deforestation and electric power plants heating the water of our major rivers, will contribute to massive ocean storms that will threaten many coastal areas around the globe. As our current cycle of Global Warming nears its peak in the next few decades, it will cause a larger than expected rise in sea levels all around the world and flood many populated areas.
Nostradamus described a future where Global Warming would once again threaten mankind. If you'd like to explore the evidence that tells us Global Warming has occurred many times in the past, click on the secure link below and order a copy of Edward Oliver's revealing book, "Eye of Providence."
