CO2 Making Scientists Stupider By The Day

The level of moronity is going off scale. Plate tectonics is driven by convection from heat derived deep in the interior of the Earth.

Long-term climate change could be responsible for moving the Earth’s tectonic plates.

A team of scientists based in Australia, France and Germany has established a link between monsoons in India over the past 10 million years and the motion of the Indian plate.

The scientists have found that, as monsoons in the area increased, the plate moved by almost one centimetre a year.

The researchers say it’s the first time climate change has been recognised as having the potential to influence the motion of tectonic plates.

“It is known that certain geologic events caused by plate motions have the ability to influence climate patterns over a period of a million years,” Dr Giampiero Iaffaldano from the Australian National University said in a statement.

“Now we know that the opposite holds as well.

“Long-term climate change, or the natural changes in climate patterns over millions of years, can modify the motion of plates in a feedback mechanism.”

Dr Iaffaldano said the findings could help to reveal more information about the cause of earthquakes.

“Ultimately, we aim at understanding what caused plate motions to change and which regions are currently more prone to large earthquakes,” he said.

“To that end, we may also have to consider the history of climate over the past million years.”

    That’s ……. wtf?? Some one really thinks…….. OMG!!!

    Sorry….. its true! Why, just the other day I saw rain wash out an anthill. See, moving earth’s surface! And that was just in one day!!

    ahahahahaahahahhahahahah!!!!

    I’m always referring to warmers as raving loons. This just makes my case.

  3. Hold on…the key is “millions of years”. Over millions of years, anything is possible and the action of monsoons on tectonic plates is even plausible.

    This cannot be applied by any stretch of imagination to anything lasting a few hundred thousand years, let alone at AGW scale.

    • suyts says:

      Yes, but you know this is how they tie it together.

      Plausible? Yes, because I’d say probably not. I think it could move the plates like I could save myself by jumping up in a falling elevator.

    Stupidity so dense no rational thought can escape.

    It’s at the point now where I can’t quite believe what I read from these people, Steve. I keep thinking “It must be a misprint!”

    If A and B occur at the same time that’s proof that A causes B?!?!? Maybe it’s not the monsoons — maybe the plates have moved because the Cubs haven’t won the damn Series!

    No its because the Redskins are so bad!!

    I am not quailified to question these reasearcher’s findings, so I say give them the benefit of the doubt, and I am sure that several million years from now, their theory will be shown to be correct.
