    Countering the global warming hype? It seems that "Europe" is about equivalent to "global". Europe is one of the few places where a warming up climate change could be visible. Yet it is assumed to be global.

    It was conceived that the Little Medieval Ice age could have been global until Mann et al (MBH98) dictated that it was local, limited to the North Atlantic region.

    The Last Glacial Maximum, the termination of the last Ice age between about 25-15,000 years ago, seemed to have been rather local, limited to North West Europe and its antipode, SE Australia, Tasmania, and New Zealand. North America suffered from a glacial maximum probably as long as 100,000 years until 12,000 years ago. However, no Last Glacial Maximum in Siberia and South America.

    So if anybody understands all that, he would be the first to do a valid prediction for the future. Until then all those climate predictions are just hot air :wink:
