This yoyo-effect on the climate is thought to have persisted for a million years, causing half of all species to go extinct. By studying the world's biggest volcanic eruptions, scientists including Dr Jourdan have been able to establish the importance of the speed at which our climate changes, on how many species go extinct.

And the bad news is that modern climate change is faster than the change caused by Northern Australian volcanoes which resulted in a mass extinction event.

"We emit greenhouse gas 25 times faster than those volcanoes," he says.

Dr Jourdan says it would be a mistake to take comfort from the fact that humans have been emitting greenhouse gases for a much shorter time than volcanic eruptions which caused mass extinction, albeit at a faster rate.

"A mass extinction may take a long time, but you need much less to have serious consequences."

Have you not noticed that I don't reply to most of your obscene, defaming posts?

P.S. It is not my fault that you don't understand science or mathematics. There's nothing that I can do for you other than tell you 'educate yourself.' Oh I know Arizona, if you are there really, is not like Minnesota in summer. Again, not my fault.

Obscene and defaming?

Put down the thesaurus, and address your hypocrisy... and that of all the other warmists who ignore the "science" they tout.

But you gotta do that without pumping more evil CO2 into the atmosphere, else you'd be a hypocrite defending your hypocrisy.

Have you ever seen a supervolcano?

They emit CO2 25 times faster than normal volcanic eruptions, such as surround the Pacific ring of fire. Look it up.

Don't panic, nature has adapted to human CO2 emissions. Major volcanic events and orbital factors cause climate change, not our fossil fuel use, returning carbon to the atmosphere where it belongs.

Extra extra read all about it:

Cause of global warming hiatus found deep in the Atlantic Ocean

Oh so it was the butler with the candle stick.

Another horse sht theory from the warming circus.Here I thought they were going to blame Bush.

The deeper researchers dig into the dramatic slowdown in global warming during the past 15 years, the more their findings point to natural climate variability as the cause – rather than any purported end to human-triggered climate change.

The latest example of this conclusion comes from a pair of scientists from the United States and China trying to identify where the expected heat has been hiding.

They attribute the slowdown in warming, as others do, to heat taken up by the world's oceans, especially at depths below about 2,300 feet.

[QUOTE who="prof. sneeritus raunchy fellow"]They attribute the slowdown in warming, as others do, to heat taken up by the world's oceans, especially at depths below about 2,300 feet.[/QUOTE]

Heat taken up by the ocean's, first was delayed by infra-red energy absorption by man-made excess CO2, methane, oxides of nitrogen, SF6, etc.

In other words, there is no total slowdown in man-made GHGs warming, but other methods of storing the delayed infra-red energy made available by man-made excess GHGs.

This is what the idiots just don't get and they scream about the Mexican border & illegals. Climate change is going to see mass movements of populations all over the planet with no where to go.
But of course in a deniers world it all turns out peaceful and everyone gets rich on that filter down effect of man made CO2 flooding the planet.

Billionaire Bay Area activist Tom Steyer and his wife topped the list of the nation's individual political donors last year, with contributions of more than $20 million to Democratic and liberal causes, a political-money watchdog group said Thursday.
Tom and Kathryn Steyer of San Francisco gave $20.4 million to candidates, causes and political action committees in the 2013-14 election cycle, according to the group OpenSecrets.org . That was more than twice as much as the No. 2 giver, former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who gave most of his $9.5 million in donations to Democrats and liberal groups, the group said.
Tom Steyer, 57, is a former managing partner at the investment firm Farallon Capital Management, co-founder of a community development bank in Oakland and a board member of the environmental activist group Next Generation.
http://www.sfgate.com/politics/article/S-F-bi...

The Washington Post's Fact Checker blog in January, however, awarded its dreaded "four Pinocchios" rating to a NextGen ad citing Chinese investment in Canada's tar sands and claiming the controversial Keystone XL pipeline would produce oil only for other countries. The Chinese investment is small, the Post found, and NextGen took an oil executive's words out of context to imply that no oil carried by the pipeline will remain in the U.S.

The ad "relies on speculation, not facts, to make insinuations and assertions not justified by the reality," the Post said.

Not sure that I agree that deniers are more scientifically versed than "acceptors". Some may be, but making such a general statement without facts to back it up leaves questions. The gist of the article being that conservatives and deniers are intertwined and they are not responsible to anyone. To admit that global warming is somehow a result of their kind of lifestyle would make them responsible. The result is that they deny there is a problem.

The conservative attitude is that they are all individuals and every one of them is self-made. No other factor enters into the equation, especially that the social order made it possible for them to succeed. If they did that, they would feel a responsibility to society. To admit that global warming is a problem would undermine their poster child of capitalism, the god of freedom, because it points out the failing of capitalism to solving a problem. So the only way out is to rationalize that there is no problem.

Climate change is going to see nothing. Learn the English language.
