a must for anyone who thinks they know anything about recent climate July 9 2013
By Michael G Wallace - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Written by a historian with a scientific sensibility, this book came on the scene before the current vogue for greenhouse gas climate change causality became the orthodoxy. Even so the book doesn't embrace the concepts of current warming or cooling, but rather, tries to get at the facts of historical climate through standard historical tools and resources.
One learns mostly about europe over the past 1,000 years, but there is plenty of additonal information of interest.

A careful historical study. Sept. 16 2013
By our ilk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Ladurie published this before Al Gore promised we would all fry, and it is unblemished by today's frenzy. His painstaking of analysis from European temperature proxies then available are imaginative, evocative, and -- for the data then available -- persuasive. If you've an inclination for a cool and unhurried look at historical climate, this book is very rewarding.

Times of feast.... Dec 20 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you research weather this is a good book to read in that it lists dates and weather events. It also details much of the Little Ice Age in Europe. Interesting perspective.
