For decades, two assumptions have been part of the scientific understanding of global warming-(1) natural forces kept Earth's climate in a warm 'interglacial' state for several millennia, and (2) humans first began to alter this state during the industrial era (the last two centuries). Both of these assumptions are flawed: natural processes have been pushing climate toward a cooler, partly glaciated state for thousands of years, and emissions of greenhouse gases from early farming held off most...

Bleich argues that Muslims have been constructed as ethno-racial outsiders in Western Europe over the past twenty years. Although the term "Muslim" was scarcely applied to immigrant communities in the decades following World War Two, the late 1980s and then the early 21st century marked two significant turning points in European conceptions of Muslims.
