The Little Ice Age Was The Coldest Period For 10000 Years


By Paul Homewood


Jørgen Peder Steffensen is Associate Professor at the University of Copenhagen and one of the world’s leading experts on ice cores. Using ice cores from sites in Greenland, he has been able to reconstruct temperatures there for the last 10000 years. So what are his conclusions?

  • Temperatures in Greenland were about 1.5 C warmer 1000 years ago than now.
  • It was perhaps 2.5 C warmer 4000 years ago.
  • The period around 1875, at the lowest point of the Little Ice Age, marked the coldest point in the last 10,000 years.
  • Other evidence from elsewhere in the Northern Hemisphere confirms this picture.

His final comment is particularly telling :-

I agree totally we have had a global temperature increase in the 20thC – but an increase from what? ..Probably an increase from the lowest point in the last 10,000 years.

We started to observe meteorology at the…

    Jørgen Peder Steffensen must be one of the 3% of climate scientists that don’t believe in AGW. pg

    Thanks for that.
    It brings much needed perspective to the AGW alarmist message.

    @NeilM welcome to my blog.
    This human caused climate change has been a farce from day one. Anyone that has followed it from the start would know that it is a religion and not a real scientific endevour. Far too many assumptions and maybe projections being trumpeted as fact. Far too much information of previous history that proves their projections can not happen. The last 20 years even with their “adjustments” can not demonstrate the projections that they have made.. pg
