climate change
« on: May 24, 2013, 10:42:23 AM »
Here's my chance to learn something  :)

I wouldn't be quoting creationists to validate my belief, though.

Yup quoting a creationist is a poor choice
Ice ages have happened in the past, due to continental drift. As continents move around, and mountains get uplifted, snow can get deposited on them, which changes the over-all albedo of the planet. Also, the Milankovitch cycle has been well and truly understood.

I though the Milankovitch cycle was a naturally occuring heat up of the earth due to orbital irregularities?

Did you come to your opinion by being a climate scientist, or is it some random well-considered opinion, based on what you want to be true, after reading some creationist blogs?

No, I came by it by being a geology student and observing different climates overlapping in the field. i.e. finding glacial moraine on top of a pliocene lake

Add Homonym, can you, would you be willing to, explain to me how humans have altered something that i think occurs naturally?

Cheers  :)
