We have been fighting the last few days about the enormous impact of minute changes in a minute factor, carbon dioxide. We think that CO2 is causing significant more (triple to five times more) Greenhouse gas effect changes than it's fair share. We base this on the ice cores, the apparent greenhouse effect on the Planet Venus and the general correlation of the tendencies of carbon dioxide concentration and the apparant general temperature trend in the last centuries A.K.A. the highly disputed hockeystick. (Mann et al 98) But the word "Clathrate" is not in the ...err..Scientific basis of the IPCC. (BTW This is going to be rather complicated. So if you're not familiar with the terms and mechanisms you may need some time to study the links. That may be discouraging. However, it may help if you want to find out why I'm stubbornly denying catastrophic Antropogenic Global Warning -or not being qualified to do so- agree with the skeptics about Global Warming being an unfounded hype, as I'm intending to reveal in here why.) More specific, I'm intending in this thread to show (proof) that the alleged violent paleoclimate changes were in reality only isotope ratio changes due to changes in fractination processes, induced by Clathrate destabilisation events. Clathrate is ... This last remark of course is based on the assumed tremendous climatal sensitivity to changes in greenhouse gas concentrations. Also like this study assumes. Oops So far we seem to be heading to a conformation of global warming. I seem to be shooting in my foot. But more later.
