It is amazing to realize that I ever thought of the Little Ice Age as an ice age at all. It was so small, in fact, that it really isn’t even a blip in global temperature change.
IFLS has an article titled The Little Ice Age Was Very, Very Little:
In particular, they found that the average temperature in the northern hemisphere dropped by just 0.5°C (0.9°F) during the supposed Little Ice Age period. By comparison, the most recent actual ice age 12,000 years ago saw a drop of 8°C (14.4°F).
That is absolutely amazing. Only a half of a degree C drop? That wouldn’t even counteract the recent global temperature increase that we are facing right now.
And as for the recent actual ice age? 8°C? Wow.
I wish everyone would take the time to learn something about the facts before they dismiss the science behind the problems that we are facing.
