An Antarctic ice core details changes in the Earth’s temperature, rainfall, and wind over hundreds of thousands of years


Ice cores can give a lot of detail. They will not give you daily temperatures. Like is being talked about here.

You do know that they've only been keeping temperature records in Antarctica for about 30 years, right? That's not a very long period of time as far as something like reliable climate records are concerned.


When the OP says "Ever", they sorta skip over the part where Antarctica used to be tropical.

Like it was once covered in palm trees and was a rain forest.

So "Ever" now means "In the last 30 years or so."

We only have reliable, continuous Antarctic records since the early 60s.
Buying carbon credits from Al Gore fixes nothing and is a fool's errand

If it can, then why has no one learned from it? You know that generally speaking the earth has been both much warmer and much colder overall than it is today?

They can show global warming and ice age patterns though, right?

We're going with more that daily thermometer data, I hope?

Northwest winds are the coldest winds we experience here.

I am from Wisconsin and our family went to see friends right near Phoenix over the holidays.
For 3 days, Phoenix was colder than Wisconsin by several degrees.

Wisconsin has experienced a warmer than usual year.
Phoenix, on the other hand, just the opposite as quite cool.

Go figure.

Actually that is why many are snickering. This record being recorded is a daily one only. Ice cores due show ice age and global warming natural environmental cycles. This is not any need for taxing nor depopulating our earth, Reducing cow methane, ect.

Your own post acknowledges the common sense of natural cycles and we do not need to make extreme posturing nor throw money at it to fixit.

We can't fix it but we need to be getting ready for it.

Adaption is always the smartest policy. It's how evolution works, no? Those that can adapt survive. Those that survive pass on their traits to the future and shape those generations.

The OP was about the hottest day ever.

And how this shows global warming is happening right in front of our eyes.

Because the hottest day ever.

From your article

Data suggests that when the arctic would cool, the Antarctic would warm. The research team believes that the inverse relationship between the two poles is due to an ocean current that keeps Europe and North America warm during the winter.

I think the "research team" needs to be informed of hemispheres, and the tilt of earth. It kinda directly correlates why one pole gets warm when the other gets cold.

You know Australia's been getting smoked, what can we in the Northern Hemisphere expect this summer ? Trees are blooming in North Carolina on February 7th......

STOP IT with bringing rational thought into a global warming thread!

You will make people cry!!!

Meh fine...I won't tell them that continental drift typically isn't accounted for in ice cores, or that Antarctica was once a lush land of greenery.

I swear this is the last time you silence me!!!

Yeah, I wasn't answering the OP. I was answering Ketsuko, who said "You do know that they've only been keeping temperature records in Antarctica for about 30 years, right? That's not a very long period of time as far as something like reliable climate records are concerned."

In reality, we have more than that, that emcompasses the data being applied to global warming science.

A stellar engine is a fairly massive undertaking, even for a type-2 civilization. It would be easier (and cheaper) to simply tow the Earth out a ways and call it good.



On the other hand, if we move the sun, we can pick a cooler neighborhood.

How do you recommend we fix it?


Give some people, who should never be trusted to fix anything, a sh!t tonne of money, then turn your attention back to your shiny and colourful phone.


I have not read of many members that really support that..carbon tax that is.

Having said that..doing nothing is definitely not going to help, although I'm not sure it's fixable even.

Change our habits in general, regarding all pollution/waste. Shift to greener systems where possible(yes, this will cost)

I have read enough scientific papers on the subject of CC to know that AGW is real. I am also aware that the only effective solutions are direct action.

Sadly that means, ACTUALLY GETTING OFF YOUR F&^#(NG ARSE AND DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT. But this is not that world, this is not the world where people do that. This is the world of ZERO responsibility This is the world of.....it's somebody else's fault.......it's somebody else's problem.......somebody else will fix it.....how could it possibly be little ol me...... Or the ultimate laziness of all.......argue that it doesn't exist.
