    The explanation for this is obvious.

    Climate change in the 21st century is so heinous that the effects have even gone back in time.

    I think the world should redouble it’s efforts to eliminate CO2 pollution to zero – before it’s too late for the poor buggers in the 18th century (who otherwise will be next).

    Dear Mr. Heller: My goodness, what did people do in late 1800’s to destroy the climate in 1936? It was humans, right?
