Climate Change Blues...

Apparenlty the world is ending:
"The globe is at its warmest in the past 12,000 years, triggering environmental changes that could become 'dangerous' if it continues, said the new study published Tuesday."

"Researchers led by NASA scientist James Hansen found that the earth has heated up by 0.2 degrees Celsius each decade in the past 30 years. This is consistent with predictions made in 1980s global warming simulations based on greenhouse gas increases."

Really? That would mean that since 1980 the earth's temperature has risen 0.6 degrees celcius. And this is the warmest point in 12,000 years?

Let's see what Sargasso has to say:

Let's take a looksee at temp fluxuations over the last 1000 years while we're at it:

Ya, I'm thinking I'm going to a) question that it's the end of the world, and b) will question that it's the warmest point in 12,000 years...

    NASA... Isn't that the outfit that said its scientists found a rock in Antaritca who determined that even though they had no trajectory on the rock and even though it defied the laws of gravity.(rocks don't fall off planets the "gravity well" is too deep even with the greatest meteoric impact) because the rock contained evidence of life on the red planet.
    Of course none of it was true but it got the funding it wanted to continue its research on Mars. Earth the warmest in 12,000 years co-incidence? My spidey senses are tingling.

    Why stop at 1,000 or 12,000 years? Go back 100 Million years to the cretaceous, when atmospheric concentration was 10 TIMES what it is now, average temperatures more than 10 DEGREES above current, there was no ice left at the poles, and life flourished.

    Yes, dinosaurs lost but mammals (us) won, it's called evolution. Do it or die.
