Everywhere the plume went, the die-off went," Hollander said.

In some areas where the die-off occurred, he said, the tiny creatures came back, but in others the bottom remains bare. Meanwhile, some of the burrowing kind are digging down into the contaminated sediment — and stirring it up all over again.
Tell that to the energy boom towns and Wall Street. Look at the citations, the CO2 emission limits aren't real.

Green energy doesn't work, fossil fuel does. CO2 doesn't cause die off, acid rain does.

Do you have proof that we are the only conscious beings in this universe? Didn't think so. Or have you been tripping around the Universe without telling anyone?

Has it occurred to you that Venus is closer to the sun than the Earth? You think that MIGHT just have something to do with why it is hotter? Why is Neptune so cold? Its atmosphere is 1.5% methane and that is HUGELY more than on Earth. Isn't methane a "greenhouse gas"?
A friend of mine got a PhD in astro physics and obviously is not a retard. When he mentioned the same arguments as you, especially Neptune and methane, one "climatologist" told him there is a difference between the methane on Neptune and the greenhouse gas methane.

Even fundamentals of chemistry remains a "special" thing to these people it appears. I guess the next would be to rearrange the periodic table, maybe switching the space of fluoride with carbon?? For these clowns everything is possible.

But it has so much CO2 in the atmosphere that from your link it should reflect all the heat and turn into a refrigerator.

Why don't you propose that to the NASA experts that published the article? I just report it. I didn't write the paper so don't shoot the messenger.

There was a land bridge allowing people to walk to America, but since the sea level came up 390 feet, it is under water. There were glaciers all the way down into Nebraska. Research has shown that the first Americans caused the "faster than now" rise in sea level by having too many camp fires. It was an easy to prove since the camp fires were all the people had to increase CO2, and nothing else could of caused the sea level rise.

Boy, do I agree with you. The sun determines planet temperatures..... A, B, C. Its that simple. Mercury is hotter than Venus, Venus is hotter than Earth..........

Whoops! The average temperature of Venus is much hotter than the average temperature of Mercury.

A little learning is a dangerous thing.

What research? Who did this research and came to this ridiculous conclusion?

How many campfires would it take to equal the GHG output of all of the rest of civilization since 1850? You know, the coal burning power plants, the steel mills, the cars, trucks, trains, planes? Did you forget that primitive people have also set grassland and forest fires, either accidentally or on purpose?

Have you ever heard of critical thinking? I recommend it.

Is that you, Teener?

Your article wasn't published by NASA- it was a political spin of the article on a political site.

http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-...

The NASA article reports on a known role of CO2 in the atmosphere. Your article tries to portray this as a new discovery that somehow undermines AGW.

Messengers who peddle lies deserve to get shot.

Get up to date and stop this needless panic.

*Occupywallstreet does not even mention CO2 in its list of demands because of the bank-funded carbon trading stock markets ruled by corporations and trustworthy politicians.

Science only agrees it “could” be not “will” be a crisis.

Not one single IPCC warning isn’t swimming in “maybes” and not one single scientist anywhere has ever said a CO2 crisis is as inevitable or eventual like the same scientists like to say comet hits are, only
“possibly” and “potentially” and “likely” and…. Deny that!

A climate crisis is the worst emergency imaginable and needs certainty not “maybe”. And if you think a little tiny catastrophic crisis is even possible, nothing will change your mind doomer.

If “maybe” is good enough for you to condemn your own children to your exaggerated greenhouse gas ovens……………you are no planet lover, you just hate humanity.

28 years of “maybe” is 100% proof that CO2 “won’t” be acrisis.

Actually contrarian Tim Ball was instrumental in starting the denier site. He has lost creditability in the science community so has to resort to such tactics to get his distorted viewpoints out.

There is a 95% probability that it will be a crisis.

There is very small chance that your house will catch fire and burn down, destroying all your possessions and maybe the lives of your children. You still carry fire insurance, don't you? Because the probability is so small, do you lobby to get rid of the fire department because it's a waste of taxpayer money?

I get a chuckle out of someone who doesn't know CO2 from H2SO4.

There's an oil and gas boom, supply is increasing. Obviously, carbon bubble economics and peak oil only exist in the minds of the people.

This is what you said, dickweed:

"Green energy doesn't work, fossil fuel does. CO2 doesn't cause die off, acid rain does."

BURNING THE FOSSIL FUEL KNOWN AS COAL CAUSES ACID RAIN, Brainless. That is what's known as a "scientific fact," you pathetic MORON.

You just CONDEMNED the very fossil fuels you so cheerily worship by ADMITTING they cause acid rain.

That makes you a FOOL. Now admit it and sit the hell down and shut up.
