Global Warming Could Be The Death Knell For Quality Violin Music

In this video clip we have a professor and a "climate expert" claiming that Stradivarius violins owe their unique sound to the Little Ice Age, which caused trees to grow more slowly and tree rings to be deposited more densely.

So, if there had been climate experts around just before the Little Ice Age, and they had made a case against climate change and somehow been able to stop it

then

there would be no Stradivarius violins

QED

By chance, I caught this on the Weather Channel when it ran. Fascinating and makes sense. I took special notice because the tree ring expert is a professor at my alma pater, the University of Tennessee.
