But if they read their own newspaper, they would know that isn’t true.

In 1132 the earth opened, and the rivers and springs disappeared in Alsace. The Rhine was dried up. In 1152 the heat was so great that eggs were cooked in the sand. la 1160, at the battle of Bela. a great number of soldiers died from the heat. In 1276 and 1277, in France, there was an absolute failure of the crops of grass and oats. In 1303 and 1304, the Seine. the Loire, the Rhine, and the Danube, were passed over dry-footed.

IN 637 the heat was so great in France and Germany that all springs dried up, and water became so scarce that many people died of thirst.

In 873 work in the field had to be given up ; agricultural labourers persisting in their work were struck down in a few minutes, so powerful was the sun.

In 993 the sun’s rays were so fierce that vegetation burned up as under the action of fire.

In 1000 rivers ran dry under the protracted heat ; the fish were left dry in heaps, and putrified in a few hours. The stench that ensued produced the plague.

Men and animals venturing in the sun in the summer of 1022 fell down dying; the throat parched to a tinder and the blood rushed to the brain.

In 1132 not only did the rivers dry up but the ground cracked on every side, and became baked to the hardness of stone. The Rhine in Alsace nearly dried up.

Italy was visited with terrific heat in 1139; vegetations and plants were burned up.

During the battle of Bela, in 1260, there were more victims made by the sun than by weapons; men fell down sunstruck in regular rows.

In 1303 and 1304 the Rhine, Loire, and Seine ran dry.

Scotland suffered particularly in 1625; men and beasts die in scores.

The heat in several French departments during the summer of 1705 was equal to that in a glass furnace. Meat could be cooked by merely exposing it to the sun. Not a soul dared venture out between noon and 4 p.m.

In 1718 the thermometer rose to 118 deg.

In 1779 the heat at Bologna was so great that a great number of people was stifled. There was not sufficient air for the breath, and people had to take refuge under-ground.

In July, 1793, the heat became intolerable. Vegetables were burned up, and fruit dried upon the trees. The furniture and woodwork in dwelling-houses cracked and split up; meat went bad in an hour.

The rivers ran dry in several provinces during 1811; expedients had to be devised for the grinding of corn.

In 1822 a protracted heat was accompanied by storms and earthquakes; during the drought legions of mice overran Lorraine and Alsace, committing incalculable damage.

In 1832 the heat brought about cholera in France; 20,000 persons fell victims to the visitation in Paris alone.

In 1846 the thermometer marked 125 deg. in the sun.

    Bravo for your excellent research on the ever present Henny Penny’s of fear throughout history and in particular the denizens of ‘science’ who are in constant need of attention.

  2. G Smith says:

    “If they would only read their own paper.” I think you nailed it, again: Our schools aren’t teaching us HOW to learn, only WHAT to learn. Todays journalists are simply victims of a leftist education.

    Ran across this today. 6 month long summers by 2100
    Is the tilt and orbit of earth being affected by burning fossil fuels? Have the Calendar makers been notified of the impending changes. Will Autumn begin on September 26th?
    Of course they mean increase in temperatures. So we will have a prolonged growing season and less fossil fuel heating intense winters? YAY!
    What is magic about 1952 -2011?

  4. John Sturges says:

    I will disagree with the term “junk science”. This is active manipulation of know fact for political purposes and personal wealth. I submit this study by “Science, Public Health Policy, and The Law” Oct 12, 2020, peer reviewed and indicating the purposeful shift in standards for illness classification which had been in practice for 17yrs in March 2020. The new classification over-counted COVID deaths by 16.67-fold. This has destroyed the integrity of the US medical system for political purposes to favor one side during a Presidential Election.

    I was in Europe during the “heat wave” of July 2019. It was hot for a couple of days.

  6. Mikey likes it says:

    I yearn for History to be taught in our Schools again. It would light up their little faces with joy and give them reason to learn, really learn what it means to be educated in the way it is meant to be, not lied to and led astray by evil ones who only want to control every aspect of Your life.
