With all the global warming going on, are today’s average temperatures the highest in 1000 years, as some environmentalists claim?

Nope, not according to the latest review of 240 scientific studies on global temperature:

Such claims have now been sharply contradicted by the most comprehensive study yet of global temperature over the past 1,000 years. A review of more than 240 scientific studies has shown that today’s temperatures are neither the warmest over the past millennium, nor are they producing the most extreme weather – in stark contrast to the claims of the environmentalists.

So when could it have possibly been warmer than now, with all the greenhouse gases man produces?

The findings prove that the world experienced a Medieval Warm Period between the ninth and 14th centuries with global temperatures significantly higher even than today.

They also confirm claims that a Little Ice Age set in around 1300, during which the world cooled dramatically. Since 1900, the world has begun to warm up again – but has still to reach the balmy temperatures of the Middle Ages.

Must’ve been all the exhaust from the horses.
