A little history prior to the expected hand wringing this summer by the alarmists. Others follow.

“The Average Near-Surface Temperatures of The Northern Hemisphere During the Past 11,000 years” (It’s been as warmer six previous times.) and “Greenland Ice Core – Last 11,000 Years.” Charts found in “The Climate Chronicles” by Joe Bastardi.

Should we be concerned…”, 1-2017. “Wildfires Seem Unstoppable, but they Can Be Prevented. Here’s How”. USA Today 8-8-2018. “Paris Climate Promises Will Reduce Temperatures By Just 0.05 Degrees in 2100”. (https://bit.ly/2Xi2Yld). “The Positive Externalities of Carbon Dioxide”, Oct. 21, 2013.
