    Contrary to the AGW cultists claims that warmth will lead to death and destruction a recent study of China's history shows that the wars were almost allways fought when the prevailing weather conditions were cool leading to widespread crop failures. As has been shown during the RWP and the MWP after that.

    You think that a rapid climate change due to warming is not going to cause major crop failures?

    Actually, I don't. Flora is well adapted to warm climates, as evidenced by the abundance of tropical rain forests. How may arctic rain forest do you know about?

    Not at all. Plants like warmth if you havn't figured that out yet. And please show me a rapid climate change anyway. You've been telling us the world is going to end since 1970 and so far the planet is just toolin along. I guess the Earth didn't get your memo.

    An older report by scientists rather more knowledgable than the yap-yaps on this board.

    Abrupt Climate Change: Inevitable Surprises

    R ecent scientific evidence shows that major and widespread
    climate changes have occurred with startling speed. For
    example, roughly half the north Atlantic warming since
    the last ice age was achieved in only a decade, and it was
    accompanied by significant climatic changes across most
    of the globe. Similar events, including local warmings as
    large as 16°C, occurred repeatedly during the slide into and climb out of the
    last ice age. Human civilizations arose after those extreme, global ice-age
    climate jumps. Severe droughts and other regional climate events during the
    current warm period have shown similar tendencies of abrupt onset and
    great persistence, often with adverse effects on societies.
    Abrupt climate changes were especially common when the climate system
    was being forced to change most rapidly. Thus, greenhouse warming
    and other human alterations of the earth system may increase the possibility
    of large, abrupt, and unwelcome regional or global climatic events. The
    abrupt changes of the past are not fully explained yet, and climate models
    typically underestimate the size, speed, and extent of those changes. Hence,
    future abrupt changes cannot be predicted with confidence, and climate
    surprises are to be expected.

    Truth is truth.

    But pushing a truth to an absurdity isn't advancing truth..

    It's good to be warm, but it's not good to be boiling

    Its good to be cool, but it's not good to be frozen.

    Seriously.. is this something you truly don't understand?
