I also vote D.

I thought you would.  And that’s kind of sad. :(

Oh well, I’ll leave you alone now.  I did manage to stir things up (Yay!) and it looks like I’m just hitting my head on a wall here.

Well, have fun with your…..crap.  I forgot the word.  There’s an animal in it or has a animal-ish like sound to it or something.  Whatever.  It’ll come to me on my way home.

He’s very thorough in explaining the consequences of the cooling period and how it’s inevitable.

http://www.esd.ornl.gov/projects/qen/nerc130k.html

Actually I take issue with the way you describe the write up.  All I found was a description of events.  Nor did I see any claim about future inevitability.  Quite the contrary, look at the bottom above his “summary of the sequence of events for the last 130,000.” years

The unstable nature of the Earth’s climate history suggests that it may be liable to change suddenly in the future. By putting large quantities of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, humans are exerting pressure on the climate system which might produce a drastic change without much prior warning. As the geologist W.S. Broecker has said, “Climate is an angry beast, and we are poking it with sticks”

So you just posted the article to stir things up? That is the definition of trolling.

My feelings about cats run somewhere just north of DM’s feelings about hippies. That said, it is time for a group hug.

CC, this was just a quick reference to reinterate my point that the areas below the ice mantle wil be cooler and dryer. For a more complete picture ( and BTW Darron, could you give me the info on where to find the peer review papers? This isn’t a challenge; I’d really like to read them. ) read the Fagan book. Also, paleoanthropoligst Chris Stringer gives a full picture of The ice ages and inter glacial periods in his book “Homo Britannicus”. These references provide a more comprehensive picture of the areas not covered by ice. Either way, it’s going to be bad for all of us.

TVA, as a college student I have access to just about any peer-reviewed paper out there. For most people the best resources are Google Scholar and sanswoo.

There are also excellent articles at Real Climate and Skeptical Science.

And, of course, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

I agree, it is going to get bad. That’s why I am studying environmental policy and communications in college. I want to fight the deniers in every way possible.

Thanks Darron, I’m looking forward to reading more scholarly material on climate change. From what I’ve studied so far we’d better back off the brink now before it’s too late. Some climatologists say it may have already advanced to the point that it can’t be stopped. I hope they’re wrong. At any rate keep studying and keep us climate novices posted!

Global warming s the result of the improving knowledge of people. We are now in the “net generation”, and technology will never decrease so as the population. And as population and technology increases, pollution increases. Let’s heal the world, start it from you. smile
