    Gore's "carbon footprint"

    http://www.businessweek.com/innovate...carbon_fo.html

    "The average household in America consumes 10,656 kilowatt-hours (kWh) per year, according to the Department of Energy. In 2006, Gore devoured nearly 221,000 kWh—more than 20 times the national average."

    I'm picking on Al Gore right now, but I'm going to delve into "climate change" even more deeply in a little while.

        This should be a good thread

          It was warm earlier, I was in a T-shirt sat in the beer garden. It's cold now...That's all I know about climate change.

            Ice caps on Mars:

            http://science.nasa.gov/science-news...aug_southpole/

            "Made of frozen CO2 or "dry ice," it reflects more sunlight than any other part of the planet. The southern hemisphere of Mars is tipped toward Earth and the bright cap is remarkably easy to see. Don't wait too long to look, though, because the ice will soon be gone. Like Earth, Mars has seasons that cause its polar caps to wax and wane. "It's late spring at the south pole of Mars," says planetary scientist Dave Smith of the Goddard Space Flight Center. "The polar cap is receding because the springtime sun is shining on it."'

              Greenhouse gasses:

              https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greenhouse_gas

              "The primary greenhouse gases in Earth's atmosphere are water vapor, carbon dioxide,methane, nitrous oxide, and ozone."



              "Without greenhouse gases, the average temperature ofEarth's surface would be about 15 °C (27 °F) colder than the present average of 14 °C (57 °F).[2][3][4] In the Solar System, the atmospheres of Venus, Marsand Titan also contain gases that cause a greenhouse effect."

                Carbon dioxide is considered a "greenhouse gas" but it also freezes during ice ages, and is a gas as well as a liquid on Mars. Is there anything that shit can't do?


                https://wattsupwiththat.com/2011/04/...pheric-shifts/

                “We identified the deposit as dry ice by determining the radar signature fit the radio-wave transmission characteristics of frozen carbon dioxide far better than the characteristics of frozen water,” said Roberto Seu of Sapienza University of Rome, team leader for the Shallow Radar and a co-author of the new report. Additional evidence came from correlating the deposit to visible sublimation features typical of dry ice.

                “When you include this buried deposit, Martian carbon dioxide right now is roughly half frozen and half in the atmosphere, but at other times it can be nearly all frozen or nearly all in the atmosphere,” Phillips said."

                  Climate change is a natural occurrence but it may or may not be influenced by human activity or other phenomena. Some scientist believe that an asteroid strike caused the late pleistocene extinction.



                  http://exhibits.museum.state.il.us/e...xtinction.html

                  The Late Pleistocene Extinctions occured approximately 11,000 years ago a variety of animals went extinct across North America. These were mostly mammals larger than approximately about 100 pounds. Some of the animals that went extinct are well known (like saber-toothed cats, mammoths, and mastodons). Others were less well known animals (like the short-faced skunk and the giant beaver). Some animals went extinct in North America but survived elsewhere, for example, horses and tapirs.

                  Before this extinction the diversity of large mammals in North America was similar to that of modern Africa. As a result of the extinction, relatively few large mammals are now found in North America.

                  North America is not the only continent which experienced an extinction of this kind near the end of the Pleistocene. In South America most of the species of medium to large mammals also went extinct approximately 11,500 years ago.

                  In Australia a major extinction also occurred. The timing of this extinction is much more poorly known; however, it appears to date to between 40,000 and 24,000 years ago.

                  Europe, Asia, and Africa also experienced some extinction toward the end of the Pleistocene. However, on all of these continents the extinction was less severe (fewer species involved).

                    http://www.britannica.com/science/medieval-warm-period

                    The medieval warm period is hypothesized to have occurred from approximately 900 ce to 1300 (roughly coinciding with the Middle Ages in Europe), in which relatively warm conditions are said to have prevailed in various parts of the world, though predominantly in the Northern Hemisphere from Greenland eastward through Europe and parts of Asia.

                      http://www.britannica.com/science/Little-Ice-Age

                      The little ice age climate interval that occurred from the early 14th century through the mid-19th century, when mountain glaciers expanded at several locations, including the European Alps, New Zealand, Alaska, and the southern Andes, and mean annual temperatures across the Northern Hemisphere declined by 0.6 °C (1.1 °F) relative to the average temperature between 1000 and 2000 ce. The term Little Ice Age was introduced to the scientific literature by Dutch-born American geologist F.E. Matthes in 1939. Originally the phrase was used to refer to Earth’s most recent 4,000-year period of mountain-glacier expansion and retreat. Today some scientists use it to distinguish only the period 1500–1850, when mountain glaciers expanded to their greatest extent, but the phrase is more commonly applied to the broader period 1300–1850. The Little Ice Age followed the Medieval Warming Period (roughly 900–1300 ce) and preceded the present period of warming that began in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
