New evidence uncovered by scientists has revealed that, prior to the use of fossil fuels, the temperatures on earth were much warmer than was generally believed. Estimated to date between 450,000 to 900,000 years ago, DNA samples obtained from a Greenland glacier, including trees, plants, insects and spiders, show that a lush forest not only existed during the period, but also indicate that temperatures were as much as 5 degrees Celsius (9 degrees Fahrenheit) warmer than they are now. Even more surprising, to some, is that in spite of these warm temperatures, the glaciers on
In another development, the glacier record again came to mankind’s defense from the
To put these new findings in perspective, mankind was blamed for a temperature increase of one degree Fahrenheit over the last 100 years in the United States, and was forecasted to be responsible for the extinction of several species of plants and animals by 2100, along with melting glaciers that would raise sea levels by three feet (putting a large part of Florida under water).
Many scientists have criticized these sea level estimates for not taking into account corresponding condensation and precipitation that would increase in response to warmer temperatures. Nevertheless, with temperatures documented to occur naturally with variations up to thirty times wider and nearly ten degrees warmer than those blamed on mankind, it is safe to say that a reprieve has been found that puts the global warming prosecution on ice.
