For those problem alcoholics/climate change nerds

An interesting discussion about an apparently-common attempt to deny climate change facts: English vineyards. (Link is several months old, sadly. Bad me!)

Apparently, morons climate change denialists believe that:

a) There were vineyards in England during the medieval period, therefore it must have been warm.

b) There are no vineyards in England today, therefore it cannot be as warm now as it was back then.

c) It must therefore be "cooler" now than it was back in the golden bright days of English wine-making.

Problem: There are over 400 English vineyards in operation today, with one in Scotland.
