I recently read an interesting article that because of the effects of
global warming and the melting of the Arctic glaciers, many artifacts
from ancient times were being found in such places as Norway, Austria,
Northern Italy and Alaska.
It went on to state a pre-Viking woolen tunic had been discovered near a
thawing glacier in Norway. The clothing would fit someone about 5’9”
tall and was found 6,560 feet above sea level on what may have been a
Roman-era trade route . According to the carbon dating done on the
subject, it would have been made about 300 AD.
Along with those items, a Viking mitten dating from 800 A.D., a walking
stick,Bronze age shoes, bows , arrow heads and other paraphernalia have
been found . A scientist proclaimed that because of the present day
global warming, many more artifacts would soon be discovered.
Of course climate change along with man’s willful destruction of the earth
are always to blame for the melting of the ice caps. I don’t think
anyone can dispute we do have climate change, but we have always had
climate change and so called global warming. If we didn’t have climate
change and global warming, how did those clothing items get there in
the first place? The area at some period in time must have been much
warmer than it is today.
At some time in the past these frozen areas of the earth had to be warmer
than they are today for man to have been able to traverse the planet and
leave the artifacts.
They weren’t just put there by some small child building snow angels on the
new fallen snow. Also, judging by the time period, I don’t think there
was a whole lot of manufacturing going on at the time, or evil humans
polluting the environment. I assume there weren’t even gas guzzling
SUV’s on the scene either.
believe these evil, monstrous entities came much later. Well then,
how did all this mysterious melting of the ice caps come about? Did some
ancient advanced civilization that has yet to be discovered, have SUVs
and thus pollute the whole world through their ignorance and lack of
regard for anyone else beside themselves?
No,none of these scenarios are correct, just as today, humans haven’t been
responsible for changes in the earth’s climate. There have always been
changes , and finding these relics from the past proves it. It is a
natural phenomena,the earth is always going through climate change, humans have nothing to do with it. To think so would
The academic world always seems to jump to conclusions and are very narrow
minded in their thinking. As much as they proclaim to be open minded,
history has proven otherwise. The scientific community is also very slow
in changing their thinking. As much as we would like to think they are
open to new ideas, they are very much stuck in the conventional wisdom
of the time and are normally not open to any new theories put forth by
those not in their circle of colleagues.
outside their social circles or anyone who presents a new theory that
contradicts what they believe to be true is often ostracized and
ridiculed in such a way, any credibility they may have is neutralized,
hence many new and more sensible theories never see the light of day
and it can take many, many years for the truth to be known.

There is much discussion today concerning global warming, is it real or just another one of the many crisis that the main stream media bestows upon us?
