Global Warming, 400,000 Years Ago!

Greenland melt may have pushed sea level six meters higher in the past | Ars Technica

Given that the innards of these ice sheets are complicated and inaccessible, researchers rely heavily on what we can discover about their pasts. One key point in the past has been the warm interglacial period around 400,000 years ago. The cycles in Earth’s orbit that govern the timing of the ice ages conspired to produce an exceptionally long respite from the cold at this time—twice as long or more than the most recent interglacial period about 120,000 years ago. It may have been warmer, as well, and some estimates put sea level in the vicinity of six to 13 meters higher than it is today.

Probably caused by all the human-caused carbon burning extant 400,000 years ago.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
