Noted Dungeons & Dragons enthusiast Oakes Spalding may take a dim view of climate science:

Global Warming is a Pagan Lie, 

So Why is the Vicar of Christ Shoving it Down Our Throats?

Global warming is a pagan lie. We're calling it "global warming" and not "climate change" because that's what it was originally called before they changed the name to make it less of a blatant contradiction to the facts. Global warming is false, of course. There wasn't much evidence for it to begin with and there is even less now. Indeed, there is currently much evidence against it.

I'm calling it a lie because much of the "evidence" for it has been fabricated or doctored in an intentional and deliberate mockery of the scientific method that would have made the creator of Piltdown man proud.

But why do I call it a pagan lie?

Well, to begin with, some of the assumptions underlying the overall ideology of global warming amount to earth worship...i
t's no coincidence that its biggest boosters are pro-contraception, pro-abortion, and anti-population...

This whole thing is evil. It drips it. 

It's not a silly encyclical, ghostwritten by a deranged loudmouthed archbishop who wrote  a kissing manual.  Nor is it  a meaningless toss-off, directed by  a former Archbishop,  narcissistically addicted to secular praise.

It will be an evil document."

But he is a published authority on the Fantastic Climatology               of The Medieval Warm Period:

According to the author : 
It's an almanac for the fantasy gamer
No more annoying die rolling or consulting an app or online program to generate a random or patternless result. With FANTASY WEATHER you can see all of it at a glance. Whether you're using Dungeons & Dragons 5e, an OSR retro-clone or any other current or past game or mechanic, this is the last word on weather for your roleplaying needs, 
Seven Years of Fantasy Weather includes four pages of introductory material featuring a glossary of weather event terms and effects and a (slightly altered) excerpt from the Wilderness travel rules section of Seven Voyages of Zylarthen. But the weather effects (in terms of movement and chances of getting lost) are built-in to the charts, and obviously the wilderness rules can be be used as is, mined for ideas or simply ignored.

Someone should write a book about this sort of thing- a  real  book ,  that  is ,  like  this  classic  fisking  of pseudoarchaeology cranks & poseurs by late Harvard  Peabody Museum Director Stephen Williams
