Re: AU is burning... Elle
I agree. It's well known that the earth was much warmer in the billions of years after the Big Bang. Cold blooded animals ruled the earth. This country was tropical. They know because of the plant fossils found. We went to see the petrified forest out west. It's a dried out desert now. Cold in winter and deadly hot in summer. Fossilized sea creatures can be found all over. I found some in TN which was a shallow sea at one time. As time passed the earth cooled. The seas withdrew. Icecaps formed. The CO2 you speak of is probably why the earth was so tropical back then. And no doubt it's CO2 causing global warming now. We don't have active volcanoes now. One blows now and again. That's about it. So where is all the CO2 coming from now? One scientist I saw on an e-show said it's caused by people. CO2 is added by the ton by businesses and automobiles (and some say the raising of livestock) Also the cutting of thousands of acres of forest every week adds to it. All those billions of trees and shrubs would have removed a lot of CO2 and would have released 02 which we all need to sustain human and animal life here on earth. Since anything we do to cut back on the CO2 will cost someone profit, it's unlikely anything will change - one day it will be too late. I realize profit must be made, there must be jobs for us, so what is the answer? No one seems to know. Those who stand to lose profit simply deny it's happening and that they're adding to it. They will lie in the face of proof - the glaciers and ice caps are rapidly melting. The permafrost is melting. Southern plants and animals are creeping north of their known ranges. The evidence, the proof is there yet they deny it.
There may well be a slight change in our orbit. If there is scientists will let us know I'm sure.
