    Always an interesting topic to look at past climate change and causal links. I would think the Little Ice Age in Europe that lasted from the 14th to the 18th century could possibly have been stimulated initially by the Medieval Warming Period that preceded it leading to significant polar ice melts, the desalinization of the polar and North Atlantic Oceans and the subsequent cyclic response leading to prolonged cooling.
