4,000 Years of Climate In One Chart

From Andy May at Watts Up With That, a fascinating chart that plots estimated global mean temperatures along with historical events over the last 4,000 years.

Most of the time line is based on ice cores, while the most recent temperatures are from the HadCRUT (probably inflated) database. There are explanation and commentary at the link, but for now, the chart.

    tHIS GRAPH CONFIRMS THE CLAIMS of “warmest year record ” BY THE scary GLOBAL warming industry and Hollywood actors are another lie .
    Too bad though, because as everyone one knows a warming world is a far better than a cooling one .

    A $$ Trillion dollar industry built around complete nonsense .
    The climate changes , it is warming , humans have some effect but mother nature runs the show just like always .

    No scientific body promote global cooling as more beneficial than the nice warming period we are in . humans certainly are not going to stop the earth cooling it when it does happen again .

    By the time spans on the graph we should enjoy the warming while it lasts .

    Meanwhile here in the Midwest we are once again waiting for summer weather… Cold, rain… Oh the horror of global warming!!!!

    That’s why jackwagons like Al Gore and his band of flying monkeys look so absurd to average Americans… We just don’t see the sky falling!

     Those who emulate success, will do fine. Those who resent it and become hateful will not. “As George Gilder explains, whether a society envies and resents Israel’s success or celebrates and tries to replicate it is indicative of that society’s progress. Countries that “pass” the “Israel Test” tend to rise. Those who don’t tend to sink.”
