New paper finds more evidence the Medieval Warming Period was global
A new paper published in Palaeogeography, Palaeoclimatology, Palaeoecology reconstructs climate in Kenya, Africa over the past 1700 years and finds evidence of a Medieval Warming Period and Little Ice Age, adding to the papers of over 1,200 scientists who have proven these climate phenomena were global, not local as claimed by Michael Mann. The authors also find that "the Little Age Ice was the wettest and most humid period of the entire record," contrary to the claims of climate alarmists that warmer climates cause increased flooding. The authors also find, "From the late-18th to early-19th century and again in the 1870’s, the region experienced two episodes of drought more severe than any recorded in historical time," once again demonstrating that man-made CO2 is not the control knob of climate.
