Dr. Baliunas on Little Ice Age Weather Cooking

Dr. Sallie Baliunas discusses the Little Ice Age and the history of people’s superstitious reactions to extreme weather.

Dr Baliunas, Staff Astrophysicist at the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, lays out a great read of propaganda and the CAGW crowd. Only seven minutes long, this eye-opening video is well-worth watching.

The video can be viewed HERE:

The Little Ice Age lasted about 500 years, but the most severe period during the Little Ice Age occurred in Europe between 1550 and 1700, says Dr Baliunas. That was also probably the harshest period of weather in the last 1,000 years, if not longer.

The severe conditions in climate brought about crop failure, starvation, disease, death and social unrest.

Because people “knew” that with Satan’s help one could “cook the weather,” the extreme weather and harsh conditions during that period contributed to mass executions and Witch Trials.

Witch trials were completely legal and were administered by highly educated upper level social strata.

Skeptics were considered sorcerers or witches and were tortured until they confessed. Then they were executed.

It is now estimated that some 50,000 executions took place across Europe.

H/T to Ice Age Now.

Did you note the parallels with how the warmers want to treat current skeptics like witches, and the notion that any extreme weather is unusual and has to have a human related cause.  What was the cause during the Little Ice Age? Liberals?
