    the current round of global warming, one has to admit that it is real. However, there are incidents in the past similar to what the author noted. In fact the Medieval warm periods are also well documented all these show that climate is not the stable thing that many believe it to have been.

    My point is this; climate is variable and whatever the cause we are obviously in a period of rapid climate change and high variability. If nothing else our governments should be developing emergency coping and support mechanisms, but we are not. In fact not only are we dragging our feet on alternate energy sources, we are also doing little or nothing in terms of emergency preparedness. Other than the draconian solutions advertised by both the far right and far left.
