The Little Ice Age that gripped Europe

The Little Ice Age that gripped Europe, centered in time on the mid 1600s, had been seen as nothing more than just a strange climate anomaly, when it occurred. To some degree it is still so regarded by many people who are living in the boxed-in world of constricted science.

Way back in time, in the late 1500s, during the early stages of the Little Ice Age, the world had suddenly become colder. No one knew why. Rivers and canals became skating rinks in the winter as this painting from 1608 illustrates. Later, when the cooling deepened, farms and villages in the Swiss Alps were destroyed by encroaching glaciers. This occurred some time during the mid-seventeenth Century.
