Think Not 'Global' Warming - Think 'Oceans' Warming (tags)

Global warming seems mysterious to most of us. A 1 degree rise in annual global temperature sounds minuscule, doesn't it....... until you remember that the oceans are involved ........ ... very heavily involved. The oceans are simply unfathomably immense! Their mass is actually incomprehensible, being 70% of the earth's surface (310 million cubic miles). If you could stack water 100 cubic miles long and 100 cubic miles wide, that column would reach 31,000 miles into outer space. That is truly an astronomical amount of water!

Very Interesting Timeline (tags)

Mid 80's - Some scientists warn about CO2 and global warming but they are largely dismissed by other scientists and the public. 1993 - Two separate ice cores drilled into the Greenland Ice Sheet to depths of two miles both confirmed earlier evidence of many 'abrupt climate changes' that have occurred in as little as a decade rather than the thousand year transition that was previously believed.


A Scientist has been forced to deny his work because it disproves the Global Warming Theory - the Inquisition returns!!!!
