earth's been here 4.5 billion years, these pinheads are talking about an 11,000 year window. how can they possibly use the words "unprecedented reversal" with a straight face? i'm more worried about a large asteroid hitting the earth, i guess there's no research grants(easy money) in asteroids.
its the latest histerical money grab by academia trying to be relevant...these loons are to the climate what krugman is to economics.
like we laugh at greek mythology, they will be laughing at us 2000 yrs from now.
Humans are awesome, according to the article. We delayed the ice age and control the planet's thermostat.
Who knew we had such God-like powers.
"We have, through human emissions of carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping gases, indefinitely delayed the onset of the next ice age and are now heading into an unknown future where humans control the thermostat of the planet," said Katharine Hayhoe, an atmospheric scientist at Texas Tech University, responding in an email.
um, this article is kind of self-defeating, in that it shows that the methods used do not correspond with known reality.
is that a problem for you climate change folks at all?
Marcott's data indicates that it took 4,000 years for the world to warm about 1.25 degrees from the end of the ice age to about 7,000 years ago. The same fossil-based data suggest a similar level of warming occurring in just one generation: from the 1920s to the 1940s. Actual thermometer records don't show the rise from the 1920s to the 1940s was quite that big and Marcott said for such recent time periods it is better to use actual thermometer readings than his proxies.
