Ireland Wants Their Potato Famine Back!

 

Steve Goddard on Twitter: “The potato famine occurred with CO2 below 300 PPM. Perhaps they want to go back to those days?… “

Ireland’s hottest year was 1921, when afternoon temperatures averaged a blistering 58F.

And in 1995, Ireland had a terrifying 12% of days over 70F.

Quite a crisis they are having.

    The Irish were warned about not rotating their crops but hard to think what they could have done considering potatoes were there staple diet and crop.

    The consequences were awful in the numbers who died.

    I believe it happened twice but some one else can check that.

    I met an Irish guy, years back in S Ireland, and he told me that the famine didn’t happen in certain areas and on certain sides of hill sides, I was busy working so was not paying attention but so maybe got the wrong end of the stick.

    Seems Ireland has seen 2 warming trends in the last century, and yet…. still unremarkable. It gets warmer, it gets cooler…wash, rinse, repeat!
    Ireland average temps 1851-2014

    Kinda makes you wonder what the Irish ate before potatoes, since as a plant from the Americas they weren’t introduced to Europe until the late 1600s.
