  • Holocene
  • From the broader perspective, each of the notable high points in the current 11,000 year Holocene temperature record, (Holocene Climate Optimum - Minoan - Roman - Medieval - Modern), have been progressively colder than every previous high point. (iceagenow.info)
  • But the more recent Holocene, since a "tipping point" at around 1000BC, 3000 years ago, has seen temperature fall at about 20 times faster than its earlier rate. (iceagenow.info)
  • cores

  • Reconstruction of past changes in atmospheric composition during the past 650 000 years from ice cores extracted from polar ice sheets indicates that the responsive changes in atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide, three key natural greenhouse gases, significantly amplified the climatic effects of changes in solar insolation (Hutterli et al. (gc.ca)
  • climate
  • Another problem without solution is the coincidental mega-fauna mass extinction that transpired with these climate spasms 10,000-13,000 years ago, perhaps the most concentrated loss of life within the previous five million years, which promoted modern man to top-billing on the food pyramid. (thunderbolts.info)
  • Sadly it seems that, driven by the need to continually support the Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming hypothesis / religion Climate Alarmists irrationally examine the temperature record at much too fine a scale, weather event by weather event, month by month, or year by year. (iceagenow.info)
  • EARTH's climate has often changed dramatically in just a few years, according to evidence written in the Greenland ice sheet. (newscientist.com)
  • Until the end of the last ice age, about 10 000 years ago, the record shows that climate often changed from one stable state to another. (newscientist.com)
  • The ice core record shows that the Earth's climate has been more stable since the end of the last ice age than at any other time in the past 100 000 years. (newscientist.com)
  • Ice layers from the most recent few thousand years also show some evidence that climate variability is increasing again, he said. (newscientist.com)
  • Climate change drivers operate on a range of time scales, with changes in some factors (e.g. the orbit of the Earth around the sun) operating over tens to hundreds of thousands of years, whereas changes in others (e.g. atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases and volcanic aerosols) operate on shorter time scales. (gc.ca)
  • This trend is expected to continue through the present century and beyond, leading to rates of global warming that will exceed any experienced during the past several thousand years (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, 2007a). (gc.ca)
  • A comparison of the two periods suggests that the Earth's present climate, if allowed to evolve naturally, might last an additional 20 000 years or so before the conditions begin to slide back into the glacial part of the cycle. (gc.ca)

  • Tigers now occupy only 7% of their global historical range, which is fragmented into 76 metapopulations, called tiger conservation landscapes (TCL) [ 10 ]. (royalsocietypublishing.org)
  • During these flips, which could happen in as little as one year, the average global temperature altered by as much as 7 °C, annual snowfall by a factor of two or three, and the amount of dust deposited by a factor of 100, said Alley. (newscientist.com)
  • back
  • These variations include the 100 000 year cycle in the shape (eccentricity) of the Earth's orbit (from ellipse to circle and back again), the 42 000 year cycle in the angle (obliquity) of its axis of rotation with respect to the orbit, and the 22 000 and 19 000 year cycles in its wobble (precession).
