Must have been Mammoth farts.
The new paper by researchers in the US, Italy and Sheffield does not wholly answer these questions but shows that carbon dioxide may have led to a rise in temperature in the period studied. However, a rise in temperature also appeared to lead to an increase in the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. This has serious implications for global warming today because it could mean further rises in greenhouse gas concentrations will propel faster temperature rises in ”runaway”global warming.
During the periods studied for the paper, the Earth emerged from an ice age and temperatures rose by about 5 C. That is similar to the temperature rise scientists predict could occur if today’s global warming is not kept in check.
In order to get a global warming research grant, you have to demonstrate that you are at least one these three :
- Certifiably insane
- A complete moron
- Have no integrity or ethics
