3/27/14: Climate Change, the Little Ice Age, and History

See Ohio State historian Geoffrey Parker's  article, "Lessons from the Little Ice Age" in the New York Times - for a lesson on climate change in the 17th century and what it means for us today.

Discussion of Parker's thesis and what the "little ice age" teaches us can be found on the excellent blog, Historical Climatology.
