Nostradamus and Global Warming
Ever wonder why Greenland was named "Greenland," when it has been a "white" land of glaciers for the last 500 years? Well believe it or not, it turns out that a thorough examination of world history reveals the surprising fact that one thousand years ago, Earth was a lot warmer than it is today. In 1000 A.D. the Vikings landed on the shores of this island in the North Atlantic they decided to name Greenland, because of its vast green grasslands on which they were able to raise enough cattle to supply the Europeans with beef and cheese for the next four centuries.
We also know from historical records that in 1000 A.D. the world's oceans were rising so fast, that the Dutch had to build earthen dikes around their delta farmlands to protect against salt water ruining their crops. Dutch engineers borrowed windmill designs from the Turks and used these water-pumping windmills to pump the springtime flooding up and over the dikes and into the ocean. Over 10,000 of these windmills were eventually needed to pump the floodwater in springtime.
Additionally, we know from historical records that in 1000 A.D. Arab sailors were able to walk the ice-free beaches of Antarctica and collect eggs of nesting shorebirds to use for their morning breakfast. Nautical charts from 1532 A.D. (Oronteus Finaeus map) show the surprisingly accurate shape, and accurate continental orientation to the tip of South America, of this ice free continent that Arab fishing fleets had been fishing off the coasts of for centuries. There are also numerous Arab and Asian fishing charts recording portions of the ice free coasts of Antarctica.
The 1600 AD "Mini Ice Age" reversed the global warming process, and restored Antarctica's sea ice, thus lowering rising sea levels. This Mini Ice Age turned Greenland into the white land we know it as today and turned the water-pumping windmills of Holland into useless relics. Of the original 10,000 windmills in Holland in 1000 A.D., there are now less than 1100 still in existence. The few windmills that are still standing in Holland today serve only as tourist attractions. The beaches of Antarctica were soon covered by a layer of snow and ice over a mile deep, causing the entire continent to disappear from view for the next two centuries. Science would not rediscover the continent of Antarctica until the year 1820, and it was not until 1955 that modern technology would allow science to determine the shape of this long hidden continent.
All these historical facts and many others tell us that a 1200-year cycle of global warming and cooling influenced by great Solar Maximums and Minimums has been going on for thousands of years. The current controversy over the issue of Global Warming, now known as Climate Change, started when the scientists monitoring surface temperatures on Earth noticed a gradual increase in those temperatures over the last few decades. Scientists had also recorded gradual increases in atmospheric carbon and quickly came to the conclusion that increasing atmospheric carbon levels were causing our planet to warm up. It apparently never occurred to anyone that the exact opposite might be true.
An in depth study of natural history will reveal that global warming after Earth's numerous Ice Ages produced drastic increases in carbon levels all over our planet. Deep ice core samplings from Earth's polar caps clearly demonstrate that carbon levels during the warmth of the Jurassic Period were over 4 times higher than they are today.
Although reducing our planet's carbon output will not stop Climate Change, this present Global Warming cycle cannot be ignored. Steadily rising ocean levels and warmer ocean temperatures caused by warmer river water flowing into our oceans due to deforestation, and power plants warming our major rivers, will cause increasingly large and destructive storms that may result in major destruction for many coastal cities. As this current warming cycle approaches its peak in the next few decades, it will quickly accelerate and threaten most coastal areas. If we are serious about stopping the global destruction of our planet, we need to initiate a global tree planting program as soon as possible. Time is running out, and we must not waste any more time pursuing the futility of reducing carbon emissions.
