How A Viking Swimming With A Sheep Led To Climate Change Denial

This article discusses how A Viking Swimming With A Sheep Led To Climate Change Denial.

Prof. Bruce Holsinger at the University of Virginia has recently shown just how this can work and what dramatic consequences it can have. His article “Thorkel Farserk Goes for a Swim: Climate Change, the Medieval Optimum, and the Perils of Amateurism,” just published in a volume entitled The Middle Ages in the Modern World: Twenty-First Century Perspectives, tells a story about a 10th-century Viking and a modern scientist who read with too little skepticism , which has dramatic implications as we confront the recent UN report on climate change.
