Correct. AND which is important today due to some very sloopy scholars
assumptions in articles the other day that the Ice Core over the North Pole
should be gone 2040 AD...., last time (in 1970's) they said 1997 AD...)
...... the amount of heat, sunshine or more than 10 degrees (!) higher
mediumtemperature that's needed to take away all the ice in the Ice Core to
get to the Ice-situation of 1000 AD, calls for so much energy that it would
take nuclear power or a new sun together with the old one to get there
within the next 80 years!
Sloopy scholars who can't count and take all factors into consideration
aren't fun for themselves nor others since the truth show them wrong over
and over again.
as for sailing around Greenland, it was done, documented and carthographed.
Late (!) maps can't be used to prove otherwise!!!!!!!!!!
