I discussed a paper by Kelly and O Grada on the Little Ice Age. Or rather, on the lack of a Little Ice Age. Commenters on the thread including O Grada have pointed out that that debate has made some progress in the last few years. The authors published a paper in the Journal of Interdisciplinary History, which was part of a special issue on the topic. Now, they have followed up with a response to their critics' articles from the special issue.
