Editorial Reviews

Not so long ago, civilization learned that it was no match for just a few degrees drop in temperature. Scientists call it the Little Ice Age--but its impact was anything but small. From 1300 to 1850, a period of cataclysmic cold caused havoc. It froze Viking colonists in Greenland, accelerated the Black Death in Europe, decimated the Spanish Armada, and helped trigger the French Revolution. The Little Ice Age reshaped the world in ways that now seem the stuff of fantasy--New York Harbor froze and people walked from Manhattan to Staten Island, Eskimos sailed kayaks as far south as Scotland, and two feet of snow fell on New England in June and July during "the Year Without a Summer". Could another catastrophic cold snap strike in the 21st century? Leading climatologists offer the latest theories, and scholars and historians recreate the history that could be a glimpse of things to come. Face the cold, hard truth of the past--an era that may be a window to our future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating February 8, 2009
I just watched this program on the History Channel and was fascinated. In this age of interest and causes of climate change and the impact it can have on our lives, this program explains a lot. It talks about the impact on history and society and in the last 10 minutes addresses thoughts on the future. However, it has no difinitive causes(s) for the mini-ice age and shows there is much still to learn - and it gives no definite scenario to our future, just possibilities and potentials. Definitely a thought provoking program!

I was so impressed with this program that I bought the DVD for my grandson. It underscores how intertwined weather and history truly are and makes the subject come to life. Well done!

4.0 out of 5 stars Was good, but left out important facts February 26, 2011
By Jeffrey
I did like this documentary, especially because it did not continue rehashing same tired facts every fifteen or twenty minutes to bring the viewer up to date on current and relevant events it had already brought to our attention. Omitted certain important facts, however. Facts like the mini-ice age's responsibility for being the cause of the demise of the Viking civilization. And also the reason the island of Greenland, once a lush and fertile land overgrown with trees and grass and populated with people and animals during the great warming, has since become a barren wasteland covered in thick layers of ice and snow, incapable of supporting any type of plant or animal life. Otherwise, even though there are better books on the subject, for a video, it is a captivating documentary.
