Kryds fingre for global opvarmning

Fra NIPCC

Data on Chinese history, including temperature, wars and rebellions, epidemics, famines, and population for the past millennium were examined. Over the study interval of 911 years, it was found that nomad migrations, rebellions, wars, epidemics, floods, and droughts were all higher in cold periods. All of these factors tended to act to disrupt population growth or cause mortality. Overall, 5 of 6 population contractions, with losses of 11.4 to 49.4% of peak population, were associated with a cooling climate. The 6th cool period evinced a great reduction in growth rate during a cool phase, but not a collapse. None of the population contractions were associated with a warming climate.

  2. Mange tak for linket Universalgeni. Det er altid herligt med lærde, der ikke er blege for at ridse de store linier op. Og jo han taler omm kinesernes opblomstring og fald, som en konsekvens af klimaet.
