From the same article you scurried through, looking for something to confirm your bias.
Evidence from mountain glaciers does suggest increased glaciation in a number of widely spread regions outside Europe prior to the twentieth century, including Alaska, New Zealand and Patagonia. However, the timing of maximum glacial advances in these regions differs considerably, suggesting that they may represent largely independent regional climate changes, not a globally-synchronous increased glaciation. Thus current evidence does not support globally synchronous periods of anomalous cold or warmth over this interval, and the conventional terms of "Little Ice Age" and "Medieval Warm Period" appear to have limited utility in describing trends in hemispheric or global mean temperature changes in past centuries.... [Viewed] hemispherically, the "Little Ice Age" can only be considered as a modest cooling of the Northern Hemisphere during this period of less than 1°C relative to late twentieth century levels.
That's where they are directly quoting the IPCC you clod !!
The IPCC is full of shit and can't be relied on for anything other than activism. They would like to deny the Little Ice Age because it doesn't fit their discredited hockey stick, that's all.
That's how dishonest they are.
I quoted where proper scientist did proper research.
If you read the whole article, without the IPCC bollocks, the CONSENSUS is that the Little Ice Age was global.
