Hooray! Palm Trees “Could” Grown In Antarctic Due To Globull Warming

Uh huh

(Telegraph) Scientists have discovered plants similar to palm trees growing in the Antarctic region during the early Eocene era, when the area had a near-tropical climate.

They have shown the area, which is today typified by freezing temperatures, glaciers and icebergs, had almost three times the level of carbon dioxide as now, with warm weather and virtually no frost.

Scientists now claim understanding of the era, which occurred around 55 to 48 million years ago, can give an insight into the future of the Earth if climate change continues.

According to their theory, palm trees and tropical forests could one day grow in the Antarctic, if carbon dioxide levels rise.

Sure thing. It’s not like it was on the order of 10°C warmer back then.

We’ll categorize this one as “hyper-alarmism” and a pure load of mule fritters.

    Teach what is more important is what is going to happen over say the next 100 years. Of course any change will have the least effect on those who are wealthiest, those that live in the north of our planet. If it gets to hot for you, you can always just turn up the AC. For a lot of people that will not be an option.

    Do these folks NEVER take continental drift into consideration? Antarctica wasn’t always at the bottom of the planet.

  3. Yawn. More class warfare from John. You should see a professional regarding your jealousy issues.

    Come on, Mojo, you know that the Earth was static over the last 4.5 billion years. Nothing changed till Mankind drove SUVs.

    Right on Mojo.
    I couldn’t help but think, how did these organic bits get turned in to rock? If organic material can be said to turn in to oil, and also be turned in to rock, then what else can it be turned in to? Can the rock be turned in to oil?

    So, am wondering how\why people find it amazing that different things grew at different times when the climate was different at different ages.

    odd.
