    Hi Louise, looks like you have an open mind; which is lacking in both camps. open mind is essential in science.
    1] Ian Plimer is a honest gentleman – he did write his book with the best intention. Unfortunately, he has learnt things as lyrics; without analyzing. When one goes in battle – double-checks his own weapons – he never did. What he is got in his book, was used by Suzuki and an American prof of history (forgot his name) Pulitzer praise winner. they were traveling around the world and had problem to convince the masses that: ”global temp can go up and down at a drop of a hat”

    Then Plimer collected their ”proofs” (what the skeptics use now) and added more, in his book. that brainwashed the ”people standing against the warmist” They, you are all shooting blanks / created originally by the Warmist = therefore; you are shooting yourself with a machine-gun in the foot, with those pagan proofs..

    Now the Warmist completely relay on the ”skeptic’s / Plimer’s dysentery” for their successes. If Warmist didn’t use the ”skeptics” as their shield – by now I would have put them in jail! Louisa,, TRUTH:the laws of physics don’t permit warming OR cooling of the WHOLE planet simultaneously!.Not many secular ”skeptics” left…Not one of you can ask yourself: ”how the hell can you prove that is not going to be a global warming in 100y, by keep repeating vineyards in England, Vikings attempted to live on Greenland, and the rest of the pagan beliefs”?!?!..

    Louisa, see if you can understand ”REAL PROOFS” that makes the Warmist to panic; I’m the only one with real proofs, that can put the leading warmist in jail. if you can, I can give you any other REAL proof you ask : After all, you can see that: skeptic’s tactic doesn’t work – warmist are marching from victory to victory. You want to win, must change tactic; with real proofs http://globalwarmingdenier.wordpress.com/2014/07/12/cooling-earth/

  2. Stefan, not too sure there were that many people in Australia during the LIA. Australia was “settled” in ?1790s and by early 1800s, say 1830, the population of Australia was ?70,000.
    Not too sure where all the bush fires, that killed so many people as to count as ” people…dying in the big bush fires”, occurred.
    It is also a known fact that the aboriginals of Australia, of which early documentation suggests a population of between 300,000 and 1 million, first used fire, as a hunting tool, to (en)trap animals. Over the thousands of years, certain plant species developed which required fire in order to propagate. (This has now become a problem for California as they decided to extensively plant eucalyptus varieties of trees and these are known to easily turn to fuel, along with other combustible materials, that ignite fires very easily and quickly).
    This use of fires, by the aboriginal people, became a tradition over many thousands of years, so I am uncertain as to how, in your view, this ties in with the Little Ice Age.
    I think people were using the Thames for more than a few days when it was frozen. I do know that Houdini did his great escape act during this period, and there are many documented photos of his descending into the water, through a hole cut into the ice. Apparently, there were fairs held on the Thames; it was used for recreational ice skating and, generally, people promenaded along this frozen “wonderland”.
    I don’t dispute anything you say – although I have not had the time to research adequately everything that you attest.
    That the LIA occurred seems to have been extensively researched and adequately documented.
    I also know that Professor Ian Pilmer is not a bogey. Are there two Ian Pilmers and we are confusing the two, perhaps?

    Luisa, I don’t believe in any phony global warmings; reason I can ”reason” as a grown up person. Warmist didn’t start lying in the 80’s – they started inventing lies since the day Darwin published his book – Plimer collected those lies – end result can be seen easy…
    Prof Plimer was the best Christmas present to the Warmist; he brainwashed people that supposed to stand up to the Warmist Organized Crime (WOC)
    Here is what LIA was:. How LIA started:
    Just before LIA, population in north Africa increased – uncontrollable wildfires made Sahara bigger and started producing ”extra” dry heat – that extra dry heat increased evaporation in the Mediterranean, Mediterranean doesn’t have any tributaries to replenish the water deficit from higher evaporation- it’s only Nile – decreasing vegetation upstream decreased water in Nile also. Therefore: EXTRA warm-water in the ”Gulf-stream” was going from Mexican gulf into the Mediterranean – ”gulf-stream” supplies water to Mediterranean and in North-Sea / Baltic – more into Mediterranean = LESS share warm tropical water going to Denmark and Latvia = less warm-water to evaporate around England and less warming the area = LIA. was created.
    You will instantly say: but now Sahara is just as big, why and how LIA finished?!! Constant debate when LIA finished, because in the finishing years might have influenced other freak events, so, it’s unclear for them, but, YOU will tell them exactly which year the LIA officially finished! I’ll tell you how: you go to the library, or Google and find out what year exactly the Suez canal was opened. BECAUSE: from that year on; some of the water ”deficit” from evaporation in Mediterranean was supplied by water coming from the Red sea into Mediterranean (I think was 1883, can’t remember) ”Less gulf-stream hot water” needed to come to Mediterranean = BIGGER share of warmwater started going to Denmark – more tropical hot-water started evaporating around England and was warming the area = LIA finished!

    Plus: you will find out that: since finishing day of LIA until today; LESS water from river Rheine and river Seine from Paris drains now in the sea; plus many other small rivers and creeks from Latvia to northern Spain; because of use of lots of water for industries, for bigger cities, much MORE irrigation = LESS cold water from the Alps drains into north sea from Rheine, probably only half of the water now, than during LIA. What that means: because is high evaporation there where hot and cold water meet = north sea and Baltic started sucking EXTRA tropical warm-water from the Mexican gulf – when more warm-water evaporation, warms more around England. Do you think that those events affected the WHOLE planet.Most of the ”Skeptics” think so…
    The biggest proof of LIA you have is: on a picture people scatting on frozen river Thames for few days. Well, two years ago, 1000 miles south/ closer to the equator; in Serbia and Romania river Danube 10 times bigger river than Thames, was completely frozen for two weeks, well recorded, same as Thames frozen scatting (people record unusual events, good days are boring) , BUT – now the shonks were not able to declare it as: midi ice age for 150y, because: when Danube was frozen and people were dying from cold in England, Poland – at exactly the same time was record braking heat in Australia and people were dying in the big bushfires. Now you know how and why LIA happened – tell the world in your English.

  4. stefan, darling, the Little Ice Age was global.
    Ian Plimer is not a pagan. Really, truly.
    Global warming is heating up your brain. Go and cool it down…with a glass of iced lemonade. A few mint leaves wouldn’t go astray.

  5. It shows that those ”researchers” are same conmen as the rest…
    If Mann said that LIA wasn’t global – probably that’s the only correct thing that he said in his life.

    LIA was concocted by past ”researchers” to get themselves funds and grants – concocted because found photo where people were scatting on river Thames for two weeks – now they invent new lies, to support the old lies.
    The TRUTH: LIA, for which HONEST people refer as Reinsurance, was the biggest prosperity in Europe, beautiful weather as ever. Paper, printing pres invented, lots of crops from america brought to Europe.

    2] MWP Medieval Warm Period referred by the old conmen researchers / used now by Skeptics;; because they found few beetles in a pit-mos in England – declared as GLOBAL. For them again, England is ”the globe”
    At that time was misery, oppression by the church, boubonik plague – even Arab Muslims were more advanced than the Europeans.
    Everything back to front presented – to support the Ian Plimer’s Pagan beliefs / crap……

  6. I wonder if our current weather situation is being ignored because of all the emphasis on global warming. For at least 7 -12 years the Northern ice cap has been on a growing trend, same with the southern ice sheets, and this year the Northern hemisphere has the largest snow extent for this time ever – it sure seems like the globe is cooling down – and yet NOAA is poised to say 2014 was the warmest year ever.

    By having this strong false bias towards pretending there is a warming trend, we are preventing scientists from getting funding to study the real cooling that has been occurring over the last few years.

  7. Craig Idso’s site, CO2Science.com has hundreds of peer-reviewed papers asserting the same conclusion — that the LIA (and the MWP) were global.
