And while we're on the subject, there is no such thing as the popularised crisis de jour
'global warming'; it all about taxing the little people.
I mean the Romans were growing grape-vines and producing wine in Scotland 1700 years ago, whereas now even with GM hybridisation and all the collective horticultural/scientific knowledge you'd be lucky* to grow usable grapes even 500 warmer miles to the south in England.
* There are a few recent English vineyards. But I'm quite sure their vines are GMd to the max to cope with the far from ideal conditions. And IIRC I've only tried, or even seen, an English wine once and would wish to avoid them in the future. Same reason you're not going to walk into Changi-DFS and find bottles of British, Irish, or Dutch (etc) wines...
Yet one more uninformed soul that helps ensure that global warming will go well beyond the tipping point (if not already).
The Pentagon has named global warming as the number one cause of future crises and military interventions. These are conservative people, analyzing conditions and issues, and yet we still end up with twaddle like, "there is no such thing as the popularised crisis de jour
'global warming'; it all about taxing the little people."
The issues are very real... changed rainfall patterns, drought, declining glaciers (and the attendant loss of river water for hundreds of millions), melting ice caps, reduced crop outputs, increasing sea levels... famine, displacements... it's happening already and will only get worse. Your 'evidence' of vineyards in the north during Roman times as contra-indicating global warming is silly and irrelevant to the challenges at hand... I had thought you better educated and more rational than that.
Global warming is very real and it continues unabated... further, there is little political will anywhere to do anything about it. Oddly, it will probably be the capitalistic system that finally forces change... starting with the staggering insurance payouts and moving towards containing expenses caused by global warming.
