    As we on the side of scientific accuracy have been pointing out for a long time the climate is cyclical and takes vast amounts of time to complete a cycle. We now have good evidence that there was significantly less ice in the Arctic 6000 years ago. In fact there is good evidence that it was ice free!

    Man, you ain't never seen the side of scientific accuracy. But it was an interesting article. So what caused the warming?

    All right wingers know that 7,000 years ago, the earth hadn't yet been "shimmered" into existence. You're off by a thousand years.

    If you're talking about Bishop Usher its more like 1500 years. But who's counting. You're more religious than I (I'm agnostic) based on how often you quote scripture. You must be a closet catholic!:lol::lol::lol:
