Study: Modern Warm Period Started Around 1825

Could this be something? It’s always been assumed that the Modern Warm Period around the 1850’s, which allows Warmists to claim that the Industrial Revolution caused the current warm period

Climate change: global warming may have started before industrial revolution, Chinese study says

Studies of coral reefs in the Paracel Islands suggest that the South China Sea started warming up in 1825, at the start of the industrial revolution, according to a study by Chinese scientists.

That was the year the world’s first railway began operating in England and most ocean-going ships still used wind power.

Man-made carbon dioxide emissions could not fully explain such an early rise in the warming trend, they said in a peer-reviewed paper published in Quaternary Sciences on Friday.

The Paracel coral record “will fill in some important gaps in global high resolution marine environment records and help us better understand the history of environmental change in tropical waters”, said the researchers, led by Tao Shichen from the South China Sea Institute of Oceanology.

Coral reefs provide useful climate records because the higher the temperature the faster they grow. The Paracels have one of the largest living reefs in the Asia-Pacific region, but in recent decades the archipelago has become the focal point of territorial disputes between China and Vietnam, and the construction of infrastructure has threatened the natural environment.

With the help of uranium dating technology, the researchers found the samples contained a continuous climate record going back to 1520. To ensure the accuracy of the results, parts of the samples were also sent to a laboratory in Queensland, Australia for independent analysis.

The results showed that the temperature 500 years ago was lower than it is today. The cooling trend lasted until 1825. From that date to the present, there was “a general trend of rapid increase” with the biggest spike reaching 2.3 degrees Celsius, Tao said.

This isn’t the first study to show that the MWP started decades earlier that originally thought, and, yes, this would certainly mean that the cause was mostly natural, because the increase in CO2 from anthropogenic activities would have been negligible. There were no fossil fueled vehicles, coal trains were slowly being used, same with ships, but, there weren’t a lot of them. There weren’t a lot of heavy manufacturing plants at the time. So, what would cause the warming?

Of course, none of this will matter to climate cultists, because they don’t actually care about science, they’ve been indoctrinated into a Belief. They’ll find a way to spin it to their benefit, poo poo the study, etc, all the things they do.

    Don’t care!!!! Screams the AGW Nazi’s.

    The world must starve, go hungry and collapse so that CHINA can RULE US!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Professor Hale says:

      That’s just silly. No one cares about China ruling us. Global warming is about Americans getting rich. Well, to be more precise, it’s about rich Democrat Americans getting richer. The side effect might be China ruling us, but at least thousands of well connected Democrats will still live the good life in their gated communities with private security.

    You are clutching straws
    One study in one area is NOT convincing proof of rising globular temps

      Bwaha!!! Thanks Retard…

      Hairy once again demonstrates a lack of reading comprehension.

      The study does not refute that global temps are rising, but instead shows scientific data that the rise started much earlier than the AGW crowd is saying.

      Once again, we see how the left hates science – especially when that science contradicts their beliefs.

      After all, all the left has is hate.

    DOMINION just found seven touchdowns for the Chiefs in an Envision that drove into the parking lot at around 3:30 AM.. Jimmy Carter to certify the final result.

      This is another study in the rich tableau of thousands of scientific reports that contribute to the theory of CO2-global warming. I suspect no one on this board can comment rationally on the quality of the methods and results. On its face, the results suggest that the South China Sea was warming in 1825.

      from the article:

      In 2016, an international team led by Australian climate researcher Helen McGregor examined the climate records from coral skeletons, ice cores, tree rings, cave deposits, and ocean and lake sediments across the globe. They found that global warming could have started as early as the 1830s. McGregor and her colleagues argued that carbon dioxide emissions could be the main cause of the temperature increase because the impact of the early stage of the Industrial Revolution might have been underestimated.

      But the Chinese team has a different interpretation. Though man-made greenhouse gas emissions certainly existed then, they were unlikely large enough to alter the global climate, they said. A deeper look into the Paracel coral reef records showed that the fluctuation of temperature in the region matched well to the increase in solar activity in the period. They also noticed a significant drop in volcano activity in the region, which they said could have contributed to the warming by reducing the amount of light-blocking particles in the atmosphere.

        We do know of two commentors on this board who definitely CANNOT comment rationally on, well … anything!

        Thanks for the setup Rimjob!

    In addition, is encouraging to see conservAmericans suddenly accepting data from Chinese scientists!

    • The Election Was Stolen says:

      Why would that be “encouraging”?

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Could have been simply mockery of willingness to accept data that confirms one’s position.

        Now think about it like a typical nuCon, that is, as a conspiracist… China scientists, all on the payroll of the CCP, concoct “data” that counters the theory of CO2-based global warming. Since China is the main source of atmospheric CO2 and the Western world is trying to shut down their CO2 production, this takes pressure of the Chinese to reduce coal burning.

  5. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Would you mind summarizing in layman’s terms what Pierre Gosselin is trying to say? Thanks.

    Is it that cloud cover is changing by an unknown mechanism, “opening up” so to speak, allowing more sunlight to warm the Earth?

    But clouds have at least two effects, right? Increased albedo (cooling) but also absorbing infrared from Earth (warming).

    Why do you think the cloud, water vapor and CO2 forcing has decreased? CO2 and water vapor are higher than earlier. From the purported decrease in cloud cover does the decrease in albedo more than offset the increased IR leaving Earth?

    Finally, does global warming have an impact on overall cloud cover??
