There seems to be some sort of pattern,


3000 years ago, there was the Minoan Warm period. It was warmer than now.

Then 1000 years later, there was the Roman Warm period. It was warmer than now.

Then 1000 years later, there was the Medieval Warm period. It was warmer than now.

Then 1000 years later, came the late 20th Century warm period.

Is there some pattern here?
