Was England really warmer in medieval times?

Get to grips with how the natural world really works with Brilliant! https://www.brilliant.org/simonclark This video topic was picked by my patrons! Help me make more videos like this one by becoming a patron at http://www.patreon.com/simonoxfphys The recent extreme heat in Europe has led many people on my social feeds to claim that England used to be warmer in the so-called “medieval warm period” than today, and so that any modern heat isn’t worrying. In this video I look through the evidence often cited for this claim and discuss why the medieval warm period wasn’t that warm, and certainly wasn’t global. In short: we should still be very, very worried. References in this video:
