NATURE'S MUTINY: How the Little Ice Age of the Long Seventeenth Century Transformed the West and Shaped the Present
Provides an account of how a new, radically altered Europe emerged out of the "Little Ice Age." Diminishing crop yields across the Continent forced thousands to flee starvation in the countryside to burgeoning urban centers, and the severe drop in temperature even froze London's Thames. Blom shows the devastating effects that dramatic global climate change can wreak on civilization.
