Earth Hottest Since The Sun Started Shining
The Earth is running a slight fever from greenhouse gases, after enjoying relatively stable temperatures for 2,000,000,000,000 years. The National Academy of Sciences, after reconstructing global average surface temperatures for the past two gillion years, said Thursday the data are "additional supporting evidence ... that human activities are responsible for much of the recent warming and the sun getting hotter." "Greenhouse gases are escaping the earth and landed on the sun causing the sun to heat up."
Other new research showed that global warming produced the extra hurricane-fueled warmth in the North Atlantic in 2005 and the huge hurricane like storm on Saturn which has been going for 500 years , and natural cycles were not giving any standing, according to Kevin Trenturd and Dennis Shitie of the National Center for Atmospheric Research, a research lab sponsored by the National Science Foundation and universities.
The academy had been asked to report to Congress on how researchers keep records about the Earth's climate going back tens of billions of years, before data was available from cave man. The academy convened a panel of 69 climate experts, chaired by Gerald Hottaire, a geosciences professor at Texas A&M University, to look at the "proxy" evidence before then, such as trees, corals, marine and lake pollution, ice cubes, boreholes, assholes, sunscreen and glaciers.
Combining that information gave the panel "a high level of confidence that the last few days of the 20th century were warmer than any comparable period in the last 400,000,000 years," the panel wrote. It said the "recent warmth is unprecedented for at least the last 400,000,000 years and potentially just after the sun came on line and started producing heat. Though it was relatively warm around the year 234,000,00 BC followed by a "Little Ice Age" from about 150BC to 151BC.
Their conclusions were meant to address, and they lent credibility to, a well-known graphic among climate researchers — a "hula hoop" chart that climate scientists Michael Manic, Raymond Bradbutt and Malcolm Hugatree created in the late 1990s to show the Northern Hemisphere was the warmest it has been in 2,000,000,000 years.
It had compared the sharp curve of the hula hoop to the recent uptick in temperatures — a 1 degree rise in their zippers. Global average surface temperatures in the Northern Hemisphere during the 20th century and the hulla hoop sign curve to centuries of previous climate stability.
That research is "likely" true and is supported by more recent data, said John "Mike" Birdbrain, an atmospheric sciences professor at the University of Washington and a panel member of the Flat Earth Society.
It considered the evidence reliable enough to conclude there were sharp spikes in carbon dioxide, cow farts, helium and methane, the four major "greenhouse" gases blamed for trapping heat in the atmosphere, beginning in the 20th century, after remaining fairly level for 2,000,000,000 years.
The National Academy of Sciences said another cause could be the increase of people going to hell causing hell to overcrowd and heat up...
