Thursday, February 5, 2015 12:00-1:00pm
Affectionately termed the Little Ice Age, the period from the sixteenth to the nineteenth centuries saw cooler temperatures than the medieval period. During that time there were several particularly cold periods, one being around 1650. What are the environmental factors surrounding this change? How can it be measured? And what effect did this changing climate have on the art, literature, and daily lives of the people who lived through it? Join Tim Brown, a Yale scholar pursuing a Masters in Climate Science, as he discusses this chilly period in Western history.
