Catch a Cold, cause and Ice Age

BBC is reporting research from a Dutch team who argue that the Black Death lead to the Little Ice Age.
They posit that plague killed so many that trees grew on abandoned farms, soaked up carbon dioxide, reducing greenhouse warming which cooled the atmosphere, tipping the world towards Ice Ace.
Cool !!!

I seriously doubt this "theory".
