on Naval War changes Climate

fascinating theory on the impact of naval warfare on climate, a theory
which appears ever more credible while studying the scientific
material presented and thoroughly explained.
British Prime Minister Tony Blair declared recently that there was no
bigger long-term question facing the global community than the threat
of a climate change due to man-made greenhouse gases. Unfortunately,
is misplaced. It is not the atmosphere which determines the fate of
the climate. It is the ocean which does it.
warfare during the two World Wars determined two major climate changes:
a sustained warming which started at the end of World War I and lasted
20 years, and the next climatic shift which started during the winter
1939/40 and caused a four-decades global cooling. The extensive
fighting at sea was a real threat for the normal course of the climate.
could the course of international conflicts have been managed if the
world's leading statesmen of the 20th century had been concerned with
the climatic changes due to the impact that a war at sea could have
had on the ocean and on the climate? Would Adolf Hitler have
reconsidered his war aims in the summer of 1939 if the United States
had warned him of their immediate implication in the looming war in
case his decision would bring 1000 naval ships out on sea, thus
generating a substantial climatic shift?
naval war thesis is an intriguing contribution to the 'global warming
issue' and has the potential of revolutionising the current climate
is hoped that the shortened version attracts a wide readership
interested in different view in the global warming debate.
