Today Goes to the Ends of the Earth- ICE FREE- Thanks to GLOBAL WARMING

DAY TWO of our ends to the Earth Journey on the Today Show! Live from Australia, Belize, the Bankrupt Iceland and Tanzania. WOW, it must be November SWEEPS MONTH! If only Ann Curry could be swept from the airwaves permanently. How do people watch this crap? The only good thing I can say, "It's in HD"!  But turning the sound down is a must for your viewing pleasure. But we do have something to be happy about Today!  GLOBAL WARMING is keeping NBC's sorry ace, ICE free!  (omg, Matt swimming with the sharks)

The climate of earth has fluctuated quite a bit over the last 4.6 billion years of our planet's history and it can be expected that the climate will continue to change. One of the most intriguing questions in earth science is whether the periods of ice ages is over or are we living in an "interglacial," or period of time between ice ages?

The geologic time period we are now living in is known as the Holocene. This epoch began about 11,000 years ago which was the end of the last glacial period and the end of the Pleistocene epoch. The Pleistocene was an epoch of cool glacial and warmer interglacial periods which began about 1.8 million years ago.

Since the glacial period known as the "Wisconsin" in North America and "Würm" in Europe when over 10 million square miles (about 27 million square kilometers) of North America, Asia, and Europe were covered by ice, almost all of the ice sheets covering the land and glaciers in the mountains have retreated. Today about ten percent of the earth's surface is covered by ice; 96% of this ice is located in Antarctica and Greenland. Glacial ice is also present is such diverse places as Alaska, Canada, New Zealand, Asia, and California.

As only 11,000 years has passed since the last Ice Age, scientists can not be certain that we are indeed living in a post-glacial Holocene epoch instead of an interglacial period of the Pleistocene and thus due for another ice age in the geologic future. Some scientists believe that an increase in global temperature, as we are now experiencing, could be a sign of an impending ice age and could actually increase the amount of ice on the earth's surface.

The cold, dry air above the Arctic and Antarctica carries little moisture and drops little snow on the regions. An increase in global temperature could increase the amount of moisture in the air and increase the amount of snowfall. After years of more snowfall than melting, the polar regions could accumulate more ice. An accumulation of ice would lead to a lowering of the level of the oceans and there would be further, unanticipated changes in the global climate system as well.

 

OH well. DO NOT FEAR. In 15,000 years it will be back to this
