I coined the phrase "Climate Myopia" because there is so much near-sighted foolishness presented incessantly by the "Industrial-Media-Climate-Change-complex. Their U.N.- driven 2030 Agenda motives are very questionable at the least.
Historians pinpoint the very 'worst year' ever to be alive was 536!
The skies went dark.
From early 536 to 537, they stayed dark. Across much of eastern Europe and throughout Asia, spring turned into summer and fall gave way to winter without a day of sunshine. Like a blackout curtain over the sun, millions of people across the world's most populated countries squinted through dim conditions, breathing in chokingly thick air and losing nearly every crop they were relying on to harvest.
Weather patterns were severely affected by the blocked sunlight, leading to summer snowfall in China and the lowest temperature levels in more than 2,300 years, according to recorded historical accounts and climate reconstruction analysis.
In the Middle East, China and Europe, a dense fog was an inescapable daily nightmare while widespread agricultural challenges in Ireland resulted in a "failure of bread from the years 536–539 AD," according to The Gaelic Irish Annals.
"Ancient eyewitnesses report that the sun stopped shining brightly for 14-18 months," McCormick said. "The result was several years of failed harvests, famines, causing migrations and turbulence across Eurasia."
Got solar panels? LOL!
"536 was just the beginning of a very tough time."
The food shortages caused by the sudden cooling in many parts of Eurasia weakened the populations and made them more susceptible to the plague."
Today COVID-19 is terrible, but compare the death rate for bubonic plague," he continued, pointing to the 1.8% case-fatality ratio in the U.S. compared to the 40% to 60% mortality rate for untreated bubonic plague, (later known as the he Black Death).
The 6th-century pandemic was still responsible for destroying at least one-third of the eastern Roman Empire population, leading to its collapse.
The Mount Tambora eruption also led to a similarly bleak year, as much of 1816 was also shrouded in darkness, leading to unprecedented low temperatures and hundreds of thousands of deaths from the eruption and starvation due to that season's failed crops. That time period became known as "The Year Without a Summer." In the United States, snow fell in June in New York and Maine while heavy frosts and ice storms occurred as late as July in the region.
Thankfully, we have been warming up since these deadly events.
More people still die each year from cold weather than die from "Global Warming."
