The "Little Ice Age" cycle.
How did Greenland get named "Greenland," when it has been a "whiteland" of glaciers for the last 400 years? The answer is that when Greenland was first discovered by the Vikings in 1000 A.D., it actually was green. A search of historical records reveals the surprising fact that one thousand years ago the Earth was much warmer than it is today. That's right, global warming has occurred many times before. History also records the fact that a millennium ago rising sea levels were threatening the delta farmland of Holland, forcing the Dutch to build earthen dikes around their farmlands to defend against saltwater destroying their crops. The Dutch constructed thousands of windmills to pump springtime floodwater over the dikes and into the sea. As sea levels continued to rise in the following two or three centuries, it eventually required over 10,000 windmills to carry out this annual task.
The dramatic rise and fall of sea levels throughout history is also documented in the Bible, which records the fact that the Red Sea canal extended all way to the Mediterranean Sea during the Exodus in 1470 B.C. and blocked the Jews from leaving Egypt. We also have dozens of Arab and Asian sailing maps from the 15th and 16th centuries (including the 1531 A.D. Oronteus Finaeus Ice-Free map) that show the surprisingly accurate shape and correct orientation to South America, of the ice free continent of Antarctica.
Earth's 120,000-year Ice Ages occur on a regular schedule, and each Ice Age contains 10 smaller 12,000-year Interglaciation Ages. These Interglaciation Ages in turn each contain 10 lesser 1200-year "Little Ice Ages." This climate cycle that we are now experiencing began with the last Little Ice Age in 1600 A.D. that buried Antarctica under a mile deep layer of snow and ice thereby lowering ocean levels around the globe. We are now in an interim period when our planet is gradually warming back up. The issue of "Global Warming" first appeared when scientists monitoring our planet's temperatures noticed an increase in those temperatures, accompanied by an increase in carbon dioxide levels in Earth's atmosphere. Scientists concluded that rising carbon dioxide levels in our planet's atmosphere were causing the warm up. It apparently did not occur to anyone that the exact opposite might be true and that the peak of warmth we're now approaching might be the true cause of rising carbon levels.
The 1600 Little Ice Age turned Greenland into the white land we know it as today, and caused Antarctica to totally disappear from view. The windmills of Holland were no longer needed and were torn down. Of the original 10,000 windmills that once pumped water in Holland, less than 1000 still exist today and serve only as tourist attractions.
The continent of Antarctica would not be rediscovered until 1820, and it would be another 120 years before modern technology would allow the accurate shape and size of this "newly discovered" continent to finally be revealed. Scientists have determined that Earth's numerous Ice Ages produced huge fluctuations in carbon levels in Earth's atmosphere. Ice core samples from Earth's polar caps have now demonstrated that carbon levels during the warmth of the Jurassic Period were more than four times higher than they are today. This provides us with proof that carbon emissions are not the cause of Global Warming.
