    Much has been claimed in regards to the present warming being a 'natural' warming. That is, after they had claimed for a couple of decaded that no warming was occuring. However, this PNAS study indicates that is not the case. The present warming is unlike any other in recent history, 200,000 years.

    Arctic Sediments Show That 20th Century Warming Is Unlike Natural Variation - UB NewsCenter

    Buffalo, N.Y. – The possibility that climate change might simply be a natural variation like others that have occurred throughout geologic time is dimming, according to evidence in a Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences paper published today.

    The research reveals that sediments retrieved by University at Buffalo geologists from a remote Arctic lake are unlike those seen during previous warming episodes.

    The UB researchers and their international colleagues were able to pinpoint that dramatic changes began occurring in unprecedented ways after the midpoint of the twentieth century.

    "The sediments from the mid-20th century were not all that different from previous warming intervals," said Jason P. Briner, PhD, assistant professor of geology in the UB College of Arts and Sciences. "But after that things really changed. And the change is unprecedented."

    I wonder if I'll ever see any actual analysis from you in place of your parroting. But, they do say there are certain things one can never get from stones, Old Rocks.

    What's amazing to me is the remarkable arrogance of humans who think that the world should remain exactly the way we want it to, static and immovable...and that if it doesn't, it must be our fault.

    We apparently have a lot more power than the earth and heavens combined.

    Well, if you had the slightest aquintance with science, you would be able to recognize that we are indeed changing the world that we depend on for life. Over two billion years ago, bluegreen algea changed our planet in an even more profound way.

    What on earth makes you think I'm unfamiliar with science? Dinosaurs changed the world, too. So did volcanoes. And meteors. And huge floods. And magnetic changes.

    So what?

    Why is it that people like to choose the one topic they know the least about, and then try to present themselves as experts? Do they really think they know a lot, or do they just think nobody will notice?

    If the earth is billions of years old is 200,000 years a significant period of time to draw conclusions from?

    "Hackers broke into the electronic files of one of the world's foremost climate research centers this week and posted an array of e-mails in which prominent scientists engaged in a blunt discussion of global warming research and disparaged climate-change skeptics.

    "The skeptics have seized upon e-mails stolen from the Climatic Research Unit of the University of East Anglia in Britain as evidence that scientific data have been rigged to make it appear as if humans are causing global warming. The researchers, however, say the e-mails have been taken out of context and merely reflect an honest exchange of ideas.

    University officials confirmed the data breach, which involves more than 1,000 e-mails and 3,000 documents, but said they could not say how many of the stolen items were authentic."

    Hehehe. "Taken out of context". Yeah, that's it.

    Yes, present climate change as shown by the Hadley CRU is not natural. It's completely fabricated.

    We no longer have Anthropogenic Climate Change,

    we have Synthetic Climate Change: So man-made, there's nothing real about it.
