Were the RWP and the MWP the same event with a catestrophic interuption? An interesting look at the assumptions that underlie the science.
The Medieval Warm Period was originally proposed by Hubert Lamb in 1965.
The Medieval Warm Period (MWP) is generally thought to have occurred from about AD 950–1250, during the European Middle Ages.
In 1965 Hubert Lamb, one of the first paleoclimatologists, published research based on data from botany, historical document research and meteorology combined with records indicating prevailing temperature and rainfall in England around 1200 and around 1600.
Hubert Horace Lamb (born Bedford 22 September 1913 – died Holt, Norfolk 28 June 1997) was an English climatologist who founded the Climatic Research Unit in 1972 in the School of Environmental Sciences at the University of East Anglia.
Most of Lamb’s scientific life was spent at the Meteorological Office, UK, where he started as a Technical Officer by special merit promotion.
The evidence Hubert Lamb accumulated in support of his proposed Medieval Warm Period did not
