7. the last time it was this warm, people were also upset with Denmark!
Though cartoons didn't have anything to do with it -- it was the Viking raiders!

But seriously -- only a few degrees made a big difference in terms of economic and even social patterns (the types of crops which could be grown, and how houses were constructed, etc.). The modern world really doesn't have any experience with those climate conditions ... and the changes will likely happen very quickly, so there won't be much of a safety margin. Especially given that the population is more than 10x what it was during the early medieval era.
