Israel was Warmer and Wetter in Our Past?

From this interesting article by WorldNetDaily:

"When scientists revealed in 2008 that an analysis of rings on stalagmite from a cave near Jerusalem showed the climate of the region got drier shortly after the Roman dispersion of the Jews in A.D. 70, it was no surprise to Rabbi Menachem Kohen of Brooklyn... "

"Rabbi Kohen wrote that the land suffered an unprecedented, severe and inexplicable (by anything other than supernatural explanations) drought that lasted from the first century until the 20th – a period of 1,800 years" ... "

"Before the Jews entered Canaan, it was described in the Bible as a land flowing with milk and honey. If you read what Israel's climate and natural landscape was like from the time Joshua crossed the Jordan right up until the time of Jesus, it sounds like a heavily forested land. There were amazing crops raised by the people who inhabited the land when the Jews arrived. "

"For 1,800 years, it hardly ever rained in Israel. ..."

This scientific data coincides with the stories that my 2,800 year friend told me: it was much hotter and wetter 2,800 years ago in the Middle East than it is today. For more info on 2,800 years of eyewitness accounts of the weather around the world, espcailly around the Mediterranean Sea, then check out my forth coming book ...
