400 Years of Sunspot Observations

Per the PAGES 2000 reconstruction, current global surface temperatures are hotter than at ANY time in the past 1,400 years, and that while the Medieval Warm Period and Little Ice Age are clearly visible events in their reconstruction, they were not globally synchronized events.



The main drivers of the Little Ice Age cooling were decreased solar activity and increased volcanic activity. These factors cannot account for the global warming observed over the past 50-100 years. Furthermore, it is physically incorrect to state that the planet is simply "recovering" from the Little Ice Age.

Long term trend
by: Earl Byron

A great depiction of how, except for anthropogenic recent global warming we are definitely on a long-term cooling trend towards the next glaciation. When the fossil fuel nonsense is over we will eventually go back to that trend line and say goodbye to an ice-free Canada (sorry...I know, but you are really only a recent phenomenon).
