(NaturalNews) Current weather patterns are changing, we are constantly told by everyone from President Obama during his most recent State of the Union Address on down through various academic circles. And few of us dispute that; weather, after all, changes over time, as Earth's meteorological history attests.

But change isn't necessarily a bad thing, for one. For another, violently changing weather patterns are not indicative of human global warming activity, for if that were the case, new scientific weather findings would not be possible.

According to a paper just published in the Quaternary Science Reviews, a journal featuring peer-reviewed research on paleoclimatology, geology, soil science and other geographic and meteorological disciplines, which reconstructs storm activity in Iceland over the past 12 centuries, finds that extreme weather variability and intensive storm activity was far more common during the Little Ice Age than it was during the Medieval Warm Period and the 20th century.

This, of course, is just the opposite of what global warming alarmists would have you believe.

The findings, however, are in line with earlier studies, which essentially reached the same conclusions. A 2011 paper presented in Bern, Germany, at the International Union for Quaternary Science conference in July of that year "reconstructs storm activity over the past 7000 years along the French Mediterranean coast and finds that global warming during the Medieval Warming Period was 'characterized by low storm activity' in comparison to cold periods such as the Little Ice Age. The paper concludes that cold periods increase storm activity because of the increase in thermal gradient between the tropics and poles," the weather pattern analysis website HockeySchtick.com reported.

That study also concluded that "the Medieval Climate Anomaly was characterized by low storm activity," not the kind of violent activity being blamed on global warming today.

Storm violence worse during periods of cooling, not warming

In an abstract of the 2011 study, the authors wrote:

These evidences for high storm activity in the NW Mediterranean Sea are in agreement with the changes in coastal hydrodynamics observed over the North Atlantic and correspond to Holocene cooling periods in the North Atlantic. Periods of low SSTs observed in this area may have led to a stronger meridional temperature gradient and a southward migration of the westerlies during these periods. We hypothesize that the increase in storm activity during Holocene cold events over the North Atlantic and Mediterranean regions was probably due to an increase in the thermal gradient that led to an enhanced lower tropospheric baroclinicity over a large Central Atlantic-European domain.

Before the left-leaning scientific community was convinced that the world is getting warmer - thanks, of course, to Mankind's activities - they believed that we were about to enter a new Ice Age. In the mid-1970s, all the rage was global cooling.

Just food for thought the next time you hear our president - or any climate "expert" - claim that severe storms like Superstorm Sandy and Hurricane Katrina are the result of manmade global warming cycles; research proves just the opposite is true.
