Earth is Barreling Towards “Hothouse” State Or Something

Hasn’t anyone told climate cultists that this year’s IPCC Conference on the Parties has been cancelled, so there’s no reason for the doomy prognostications in the normal runup to it? Or, perhaps it’s the coming election?

Earth barreling toward ‘Hothouse’ state not seen in 50 million years, epic new climate record shows

Sixty-six million years ago, after a massive asteroid hit Earth with the explosive energy of roughly 1 billion nuclear bombs, a shroud of ash, dust and vaporized rock covered the sky and slowly rained down on the planet. As plant and animal species died en masse, tiny undersea amoebas called forams continued to reproduce, building sturdy shells out of calcium and other deep-sea minerals, just as they had for hundreds of millions of years. When each foram inevitably died — pulverized into seabed sediment — they kept a little piece of Earth’s ancient history alive in their fossilized shells.

For decades, scientists have studied those shells, finding clues about the ancient Earth’s ocean temperatures, its carbon budget and the composition of minerals spilling through the air and seas. Now, in a new study published today (Sept. 10) in the journal Science, researchers have analyzed the chemical elements in thousands of foram samples to build the most detailed climate record of Earth ever — and it reveals just how dire our current climate situation is.

The new paper, which comprises decades of deep-ocean drilling missions into a single record, details Earth’s climate swings across the entire Cenozoic era — the 66 million-year period that began with the death of the dinosaurs and extends to the present epoch of human-induced climate change. The results show how Earth transitioned through four distinct climate states — dubbed the Warmhouse, Hothouse, Coolhouse and Icehouse states — in response to changes in the planet’s orbit, greenhouse gas levels and the extent of polar ice sheets.

So, hey, nature causes this kind of stuff to happen, right? But, not, it’s your fault for that fossil fueled vacation you took the other year

“Now that we have succeeded in capturing the natural climate variability, we can see that the projected anthropogenic warming will be much greater than that,” study co-author James Zachos, professor of Earth and planetary sciences at the University of California, Santa Cruz, said in a statement. “The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) projections for 2300 in the ‘business-as-usual’ scenario will potentially bring global temperature to a level the planet has not seen in 50 million years.” (The IPCC is a United Nations group that assesses the science, risks and impacts of climate change on the planet.)

For example, about 10 million years after the dinosaur extinction, Earth jumped from a warmhouse state to a hothouse state. This event, known as the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum, saw temperatures up to 29 degrees Fahrenheit (16 degrees Celsius) above modern levels,…

“We now know more accurately when it was warmer or colder on the planet and have a better understanding of the underlying dynamics and the processes that drive them,” lead study author Thomas Westerhold, Director of the University of Bremen Center for Marine Environmental Sciences in Germany, said in the statement. “The time from 66 [million] to 34 million years ago, when the planet was significantly warmer than it is today, is of particular interest, as it represents a parallel in the past to what future anthropogenic change could lead to.”

Yes, they really do seem to be saying that we will see a 29F increase by 2300, when no one will remember this insance prognostication.

    Sure. We should always take the word of a “guy on the internet” over the work of scientists.

  2. Jl says:

    Yes, they use the “for example” to scare you, as there’s no evidence it would ever get that hot. Business as usual….

    I notice its now the year 2300 and now not the year 2200.

    Additionally it took millions of years to warm up, not 180. This article distorts and conflates and leads you to believe that in 180 years we will be 26 degrees warmer than today, and living on the planet will be like living in the dessert. This is AGW in a nutshell they work exactly like the left fact checking does. They change the the claim to fit the narrative.

    One of the most recent that comes to mind is a journalist tweets that Clinton was aboard the “Lolita Express 26 times, handwritten logs confirmed.”

    FALSE screams the fact checkers. They then write a fiery hit piece saying Bill Clinton was NEVER on Epstein Island so this is a false statement.

    The Tweet never claimed He was on the island or even hinted that he was, but rather his twitter post read only that Clinton was handwritten logged as being on the plane 26 times.

    See how they change the story to then make it false? Therefore everything he writes from that point forward is a lie in the readers mind.

    As it turns out witnesses later claimed that he was indeed on the Island and yet the major newspaper refused a retraction and in fact told Tim he would need to basically sue to get a retraction.

    TLDR: Whenever Elwood or anyone else throws a polifact at you check the source to make sure they have not changed the basis of the fact check to make the truth a lie by adding something that was never said or claimed.

      FACT CHECKING. Trump lies over and over and over again.

      Here is a great example of his lies.

      BLOOMBERG NEWS: TRUMP LIES.

      “We brought you a lot of car plants, Michigan,” Trump said at an airport rally attended by thousands of people in Freeland. “It’s been a long time since you had all these plants being built.”

      NOTICE HE SAYS BEING BUILT. Seriously, does anyone think they can build a mega plant in a few months?

      YET from the same article by Bloomberg claiming Trump LIES.

      One new Fiat Chrysler Automobiles plant is under construction in Detroit, and two others are planned in the state, one by Navya SAS, a French shuttle bus maker, and another by Waymo, an Alphabet Inc. subsidiary working on autonomous cars.

      Another NEVER TRUMP RAG CLAIMS:

      Business insider claims: Trump has frequently boasted the creation of auto plants when speaking to voters in swing states. But then they add this!!! Only five new car plants have been announced to open in the US since he stepped into office in 2017.

      POLITIFACT: Claims Trumps claim he in bringing 5 new autoplants into Michigan is a lie when in fact Trump never specifically says MICHIGAN.

      He says: “We brought you a lot of car plants, Michigan,” Trump said at an airport rally attended by thousands of people in Freeland. “It’s been a long time since you had all these plants being built.”

      Nuance for sure but never the less everyone calls him a liar by changing the story to then make it a lie.

      The above does not even include the closed plant that was reopened after closing in 2013.

      Check your facts before you become depressed.

    And finally for my last post of the day, since I have lots of work to do.

    Generation Z or Gen Z. Everyone is depressed by the fact that Gen Z aligns with liberals and yet a deep dive into their ideaology shows that GEN Z is in fact much more conservative than the previous generation, and with Trump trouncing the Department of Education for their lies and rewriting history to fit a communist narrative, the real truth is that GEN Z is the most conservative generation since the baby boomers.

    So take heart. The narrative being put forth by the left is that 2020 and perhaps 2024 is the end of the baby boomer era and with that GEN Z will wipe the floor with Conservatives is just that. While it is true they call themselves liberals they are in fact rejecting SJW and a Classical Liberal is someone who is very close to todays GOP.

    Remember that when you get depressed about the chances of America. Trump needs 4 more years to clean china and their communist progaganda from this country. If Biden is elected it will be back to the business at hand of brainwashing everyone that America Sucks.
