The Earth Survived Global Warming

Morning, y'all. Jebediah here, and I really believe that the "global warming as caused by Mankind" nuts do not think when they release studies like this

Global warming from 55 million years ago suggests that climates are highly sensitive to carbon dioxide, according to a study published by the latest issue of Science.

Scientific studies show that a massive release of carbon into the atmosphere caused the ancient global warming event known as the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM) that began about 55 million years ago.

The resulting greenhouse effect heated the earth as a whole by about 9 Fahrenheit (5 Celsius) in less than 10,000 years, geologic records show.

The increase in temperatures lasted about 170,000 years, altering the world rainfall patterns, making the oceans acidic, affecting plant and animal life and spawning the rise of our modern primate ancestors, according to the study by Mark Pagani, associate professor of geology and geophysics at Yale University.

There you have it. Major global warming has happened before, and the Earth survived. Life survived. And there were no automobiles to cause it!

This finding contradicts the position held by many climate-change skeptics that the Earth climate is resilient to such carbon dioxide emissions.

Perhaps the author missed the fact that the Earth survived, as did life. I reckon I made that rather clear. It must have survived, since those involved in the study were alive to write it.

I would think that the Global Warming freaks would want it to occur, since they are also Darwinists, so Global Warming would certainaly force survival of the fittest.

Mankind has survived other massive climate shifts. An ice age allowed Man to cross the landbridges from the Asian continent to North America. Many warm and cold periods throughout the history of the Earth allowed, among other things, life to develop, become multi-cellular, and leave the seas. And we will survive global warming.

Unless the cows revolt. 🙂

  1. The Way Forward…

    Over the past few days there has been some talk about what President Bush was going to do in the wake of the recommendations of the Iraq Study Group, leading Generals, both active and inactive and what “the way forward” would entail….

  2. Jeff H says:

    Dude,you missed the most obvious irony: GLOBAL WARMING CAUSED THE RISE OF PRIMATES.

    Thus, if Al Gore is right, we’re just returning the favor…

  3. It did. I was actually watching a Natural Geographic channel program on it last night.
