But, the article was written in 1897 before they understood that the weather fluxuated so frequently on the order of centuries.
Listen, I've never been to Greenland and I haven't studied paleontology or paleobotony. However, I'm willing to bet that when Greenland was "green
and lush," it was not located where it is today. Continental drift of course eventually leads to continents being in new places and slamming parts
into other parts and so forth. I doubt there were tropical plants near the poles, maybe a warmer climate would allow boreal forrests and artic scrub
to exist further north and south than today.
As far as the Vikings, I thought proof was already found that there was a warm period during that time.
I just don't see how this disproves health effects and natural reprocussions from man-made pollution.
The earth's finite...if chicken little goes nuts and the people don't want to listen, nothing horrible may even happen in the next 100 years, but if
we keep going exponentially as we are, I don't think it is a stretch of logic to say that things will start to be totally exhausted, especially
realizing as far as living creatures go, this is the case now.
