Antarctica's glaciers are retreating fast and show signs of collapse

Antarctica's glaciers are retreating fast and show signs of collapse

(11:11) Antartica's melting glaciers are unstoppable and will raise sea level to displace hundreds of millions of people who inhabit coastlines around the world.

Wonder what humans were doing 11,000 years ago to cause the global temperatures to be the same as they are today. Bad humans.

Human activity 11,000 years ago was too insignificant to cause climate change. 26,000 years ago was the peak (coldest) of the last ice age. The climate warmed up because of the increase in solar radiation due to changes in the Earth's orbit around the sun. That was amplified by increased CO2 release from the oceans as the planet warmed. About 11,000 years ago, the warming plateaued resulting in a relatively stable climate that allowed human civilisation to develop.

Since the Industrial Revolution 150 years ago, humans have added about 600 billion tonnes of new CO2 to the atmosphere - CO2 that was previously locked up underground in the form of oil, gas and coal. Considering CO2 is a powerful greenhouse gas, it's not surprising the climate is warming. What did you expect? No effect?

Thank you WalterEgo. Logic, fact or reason won't hinder oil industry propaganda. Fortunately, their argument that CO2 activity doesn't cause global warming because humans were incapable of emitting billions of tons of CO2 the last time Earth was this warm is so weak that it actually gets more people to seek to understand molecular physics.

Us Exxon trolls that are paid to post on Boreme realizes that the temperatures are rising but have doubts on exactly how much humans are contributing because during the previous periods before our current ice age, the temperatures globally were around 25C and we are still only at 16C today. We should be expecting the temperatures to rise even if humans were not on the planet.

Some people say that temperatures are rising faster because of human activity but nobody has ever told us when we would have been at our current temperatures if humans didn't exist and have supporting documentation to prove it. All you have is a concensus of some scientists that say it's true without much proof to back it up. AGW is just a hypothesis (might be true, might not be true), and needs to be proven before it becomes a theory. It isn't even close to that stage yet.

"increase in solar radiation due to changes in the Earth's orbit" Sources please. I'd sure like to know who was around 11,000 years ago to have observed that to take those scientific measurements.

"That was amplified by increased CO2 release from the oceans as the planet warmed." Sources again please. I need to know how that CO2 got into the ocean prior to 11,000 years ago before it was released. I'm sure the Dinosaurs didn't do it because they didn't cook their foods, build trains, planes, or automobiles, and didn't have cement factories.

And if I provided sources, how would that change your thinking?

Oh, and you want to know how CO2 got into the ocean prior to 11,000 years ago? It's quite simple really. Just think about it and the answer should pop into your mind quite quickly. Check with your friend Google, and if you were right, you can experience the satisfaction of figuring something out all by yourself.

You agree that the CO2 was not put there by humans but still the planet warmed to today's levels. Interesting. That means the planet can have global temperature rises due to natural events and it happens frequently too. That brings back the same questions as before about how much humans are contributing to global warming exactly and how much of it is natural.

Everyone like to blame CO2 but methane is worse, water vapor is more vast, and deforestation makes it so the CO2 isn't utilized like it should be.

Congratulations, you finally understand. CO2 and methane have warmed the planet many times in the past, and to a much higher temperature than today. That is because they are greenhouse gases. The higher the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, the more heat is trapped, so the climate warms.

All you have to do now is figure out where the increase in CO2 and methane since the Industrial Revolution came from.

Of course an oil industry hired blogger makes the first comment. Meanwhile, ExxonMobile relocated from the port city of Houston to hundreds of feet above sea level years ago.

That's right, Exxon pays me 3.5 million a year to post on Boreme. Don't let that stop you thinking about the comment in the video about the climate being the same 11,000 years ago. Makes you think what the hell were we doing to cause our temperature to rise so much back then.

I'm surprised ExxonMobile isn't paying you better. Hope you can renegotiate a better deal after the first major ice shelf collapse wipes out coastal civilizations.

That 3.5MM is just what Exxon pays me. There are other large oil companies that contribute. With the few posts I've put on Boreme, I've already become a billionaire. If I didn't sign a NDA, I would be in Forbes for being the fastest person in history to become a billionaire. But that NDA requires that I stay anonymous so my billions go unpublished.

Not a hired blogger. Just an idiot.

He gets taught every time there's a new video and he still doesn't learn.

That's what got him to where he is today.
