Sagan was a heavy dope smoker, but I doubt that even crack-cocaine meth addiction could produce thinking as delusional as Science Magazine is experiencing.
Did Melting Antarctic Permafrost Drive Ancient Global Warming? by Richard A. Kerr on 4 April 2012, 5:31 PM
Fifty-five million years ago, the world abruptly warmed by a scorching 5 degrees Celsius, the oceans turned acidic, and life ran a gantlet of extinction. Sound familiar? That was the closest nature ever came to foreshadowing the fossil-fuel-fed warming that is just getting underway now. But for 15 years, climate scientists have puzzled over how that ancient global warming could have happened. Now a group of researchers is offering a new explanation: The needed greenhouse gases could have gushed from thawing permafrost on an ice-free Antarctica.
Sound familiar???? WTF is he talking about?
Satellites show 2012 temperatures below normal, and temperatures on the Antarctic Ice Sheet are -90F. It would have to warm up 122 degrees to start melting.
The climate science community has completely lost the plot of reality. Like a cancer, their sole purpose for existence is to grow and kill everything around them.
