Global warming means there is warming all over the world, right? Global cooling means the opposite. Well, there was global warming back in the <b>Medieval Warm period</b> (about 800-1300), when temperatures reached 2º C higher than today. – and allowed Vikings to colonize a big piece of green territory that they called: Greenland. Now it is a chunk of white ice, but the name <b>Ice Land</b> is taken by a nearby nation. Then came a global cooling during the <b>Little Ice Age</b> from (about 1350-1850) when people all over the world were freezing to death. And I mean <b>ALL</b> over the world, <b>INCLUDING the Southern Hemisphere</b>, less prone to changes in temperature because the huge amount of ocean surface it has, and its infinite thermal inertia. Leaving aside many proxy studies made in the SH confirming there was a Little Ice Age, the best way to confirm the existence of the Freezing Period are historical chronicles by the Spanish Conquerors. I had the chance to read the chronicles related to the foundation of Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia (15ºS – full tropical region) back in 1591 (its second foundation), that exist in the Historical Archives in Santa Cruz. Anyone can access them. And the chronicles described the region as (free translation) <b>“….fertile lands, with nice and temperate summers, but winters are so cold and harsh that tree trunk split in half because the terrible frosts.”</b> I have visited the region every year since 1987 and finally I moved and lived in Santa Cruz for three straight years (see what I was doing: http://mitosyfraudes.8k.com/photoEng.html) and I can assure you that the lowest temperature I have experienced there was 5º C in May 29th, 1996, during a terrible “surazo” (southwest wind from the nearby Andes). Someone would say, how come there are trees in regions with trunk-splitting frosts? Of course, trees that grew before the cold period cam down in the region. 200-300 hundred year trees are common there (still). Curiously enough, average temperatures are going down in Bolivia, and the last three years have seen a series of temperatures below zero in the region! Could it be that global cooling is going on? See how every winter in Europe is worse than the previous, and summers are, in average, getting cooler, as they are getting cooler also in the USA. See this about temperature trends in the 48 contiguous US states: 32 states have warmed slightly, and 1<b>6 states have COOLED slightly.</b> So where is the <b>global</b> warming? http://mitosyfraudes.8k.com/Calen4/Ghostbusting.html Comments?
