This page is completely unreferenced; and just about every statement in the intro is questionnable:

Historical climatology is the study of historical changes in weather and their effect on human history. This supplants the traditional study of only ice ages and other dramatic effects. This differs from paleoclimatology because historical climatology studies the correlations of human history and climate change and not merely ecological effects. The study seeks to define periods in human history which were either warmer or cooler than the present.

Until the article comes up to a better standard I don't think it should be linked to William M. Connolley 07:37, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

It makes a start in an important area of the debate about climate. Of course it should be improved [PA removed - wmc] Peterlewis 08:04, 17 April 2007 (UTC)
Um. Yes its a start. But at the moment its a poor article. Your words make it sound like its in danger of being a POV fork - please don't head it that way. Also, wiki isn't a link collection - we have articles on HSC and MWP - ext links (especially to badly biased sites) are not good William M. Connolley 09:42, 17 April 2007 (UTC)


There is a big block added about LIA. At first glance, this appears to duplicate a lot of the LIA article William M. Connolley (talk) 10:33, 12 December 2009 (UTC)

Of coures. The article needs expansion, as already requested above. Any contributions gratefully received, especially historic records such as quotes from old texts, maps and manuscripts. Peterlewis (talk) 10:38, 12 December 2009 (UTC)
The addition only added more European bias. It should go. Gabriel Kielland (talk) 12:36, 12 December 2009 (UTC)

How negative can one be? You have to start somewhere and Europe has the longest list of historical records to include. Peterlewis (talk) 13:50, 12 December 2009 (UTC)

Article in current state might be deleted[edit]

Added ref improve template, notified the creator of the article. The correct article for various topics can be found already and the proper term is paleoclimatology. So if the ref situation is not improving, i guess we can delete this article. prokaryotes (talk) 10:17, 11 May 2015 (UTC)

The single reference appears problematic as it is about ecosystem change not climate change (I can only see the abstract) in pre-historic Australia. This is followed by a bit of WP:Synthesis. Vsmith (talk) 13:31, 11 May 2015 (UTC)
