Nr. 20: How do you feel to the climate crisis and climate quotas etc.?

Question 20:

How do you feel to the climate crisis and climate quotas etc.?


This for me is really a non issue and a theme which the whole is made ​​up when I do not think neither the climate crisis or emission allowances. There are flights made ​​by wicked people to lure a stray from the faith. Of course we do all the best for the climate and our fellow man. But the real danger is not climate, but when we do evil and turn away from God.

I explain everything in detail, both directly and indirectly in my commentaries on Revelation and elsewhere, both on our website and blog!

There have always been fluctuations in temperature as the example have grown potatoes in Greenland, even in recent times.

Climate is something that is always changing, we are today barely out of "the little ice age".

The Little Ice Age was not a simple cooling, but rather a convergence of a series of events - volcanism, variable solar activity, changes in ocean currents - which together caused the climate and temperatures in the wall between a bouncing ball for almost 600 years.

Our ancestors had to suffer through an almost endless variety of climate changes, each of which rarely lasted more than one twenty-year period.
And the little ice age was not just cold. There were times as warm as or warmer than today. The only problem was that it did not last. Thus it was difficult to adjust to and prepare for whatever might come.

Millions died in famines, wars raged, witches were burned. Climate Chaos affected European history, writes the historian Brian Fagan in his book The Little Ice Age (2000).

The phenomenon was global, with the dramatic climate changes from New Zealand to Canada, but was, like other historical events, particularly well documented in Europe.

The medieval warmth

The transition must have felt dramatically. In Roman times, the weather in Europe is a bit cooler than today. But the period before the Little Ice Age, from about 800's and upwards, is called the "medieval warm period".

For five centuries, albeit interrupted by some cold years, Europe enjoyed the warm, calm weather, a climate golden age of summer Average temperatures between 0.7 and 1.0 degrees above average for the twentieth century.

The population increased. The favorable climate made possible the Norse settlements in Greenland from 900-number. In Norway, cultivated grains 100 to 200 meters further up the mountains than it is today, and England was a strong competitor to France's wine production.

In particular, the period 1284 to 1311 was characterized by unusually warm and dry summers. And the heat made the peasants even bolder and thus even more vulnerable.

For now came the catastrophe.


Flood started in 1315, seven weeks after Easter. It began to torrential down, and it did not stop. May, June, July, August - it just continued. Fields became lakes, streets and roads were to hang marshes. Livestock stood knee-deep in mud, gushing rivers washed away villages.

An unusually cool August went into a cold September. The corn was flat, not matured.

At Christmas, people began to become desperate, and the ensuing famine was especially serious in the last centuries of population growth.

Those who hoped for better times was disappointed. 1316 continued where 1315 left off, and brought the worst harvest in the Middle Ages. It rained. And it rained. 1317, 1318 - with an extremely cold winter in between, 1319 .. First up on 1320's things began slowly to improve.

But this was only the beginning, the "little ice age".
The Little Ice Age was never a deep hypothermia, it was short and dramatic periods.
Cool storms as "Grote Mandrenke" in January 1362 drowned tens of thousands in the Netherlands and Denmark. More than 100 000 will have died in two storms in 1421 and 1446 - huge numbers in terms of future population size.

In 1588 the storm was greater inroads into the Spanish fleet than the English warships managed, and under the Culbin disaster in Scotland in September 1694 buried storm of 16 farms in the sand - between 20 and 30 square kilometers of farmland disappeared under 30 feet loose sand.

250 years of the cold

The worst came last, however. The period from the end of the 1500s to the middle of the 1800s marks the coldest part of the "Ice Age". In more than 200 years grew glaciers in Scandinavia and the Alps, Iceland, Alaska, China, in the southern Andes and New Zealand.

The summer snowline lay 100 meters further down than it is today, and villages were consumed by ice that oozed down the mountainside.

The greatest crisis of our concerned occurred in 1742 to 1743, when the glaciers reached their maximum extent. It was cold and rained violently, and more than 30 000 people died of starvation and disease. The effect of the bad weather was compounded by the Danish grain monopoly. Together they created the conditions that resembled the things no one had seen since the Black Death.

The years 1805 to 1820 was very cold. And to make matters worse, in 1815 exploded volcano Tambora in Indonesia - one of the largest outbreaks.

The ash from Tambora remained in the atmosphere, and helped to make 1816 the "year without summer", with average temperatures between 2.3 and 4.6 degrees below normal. Red and brown snow fell as far south as southern Italy.

- Will faith Tambora lowered the temperature by about one degree.

Hundreds of thousands died of starvation, and the following year, 1817, "begging the year", was a year of social unrest and violent riots.


This was, however, only trifles to rain, compared with potato disaster in the 1840s, when a potent mixture of dry rot, one-sided dependence on the potato and a series of particularly cold winters led to famine in many parts of Europe and especially in Ireland, where two and half a million people either starved to death or emigrated to America.

This disaster was again made to the trifles in the 1870s, when cold and drought killed somewhere between 14 million and 18 million Chinese and Indians.

As late as the winter of 1894 to 1895 was the ice thick on the Thames - before it slowly became warmer again. Assumption Whisk because a volcanic eruption on the other side of the earth that affected the climate in Europe to be very cold.

In the period 1895 to 1940 the Europeans enjoyed a series of relatively mild winters, before we got a cold period with snowy winters of 1950 -, 1960 - and 1970's - so many of today's scientists and politicians remember them from childhood.
It was cold, as Pieter Breugel the Elder painted this picture in 1565Men is it over?
If the last we saw of the little ice age disappeared completely at the end of the 1800s - how can we really know that it's over?
- Cold periods during the Little Ice Age was constantly interrupted by warm between games. It was relatively warm early in the twentieth century, while the 1960 - and 1970's was as cold as part of the little ice age, before we have entered a warmer liquid.

Why? But why was all this?

- Collected data shows that the Little Ice Age was a global event, it was cold and damp across much of the globe.

- We must therefore look for causes that may have affected the entire planet. Personally I fall down on the effects of small variations in solar radiation.

It is shown that for long periods in the little ice age as it was sunspot activity. Scientists know that the intensity of radiation from the sun varies periodically, and that these periods often linked with variations in solar activity. Years of many sunspots are years with a lot of heat.
We live in an Ice Age
We live today in an ice age, a geological period characterized by large parts of the globe is covered by ice.
The large variation is related to various factors, such as the continents operation of the earth's surface, ocean currents, variations in Earth's orbit around the sun and the angle relative to the sun. In addition, factors such as solar activity and cosmic radiation.
We are currently near the middle of a relatively warm period in an otherwise cold age, an interglacial.
The Little Ice Age may have been only a small ripple in this pattern, perhaps exacerbated by intense volcanism.
On the other hand, volcanoes have always existed. And certainly the "little ice age". There have been many such periods of changing climate in history, and they will surely come again.
- The Little Ice Age may well be an example of what can happen when small variations in the sun!
