This would be highly counterproductive for businessmen trying to negotiate a trade deal or even just neighbors trying to get along with each other Return to Babylon: Travelers, Archaeologists, and Monuments in Mesopot. With industrialization, peoples could export their environmental devastation onto other unfortunates.� An early trick of smokestack industries was making the smokestacks taller so that the pollution was �airmailed� to their neighbors.� Japan regenerated its forests by importing timber from raped forests abroad, mostly from the Asian mainland and North America. �Burning fos sil fuels has also raised the atmosphere�s carbon dioxide content, which has warmed Earth.� It was not until 1859 that the radiation-absorbing properties of greenhouse gases were measured, and it took another half century before scientists began to suspect that the fossil fuel era might be warming Earth�s atmosphere.� A century later, there is still a faux debate regarding the atmospheric-warming effects of burning fossil fuels, and I will briefly address the issue.� This essay has pres ented Earth�s many changing faces during its journey.� Earth had molten beginnings, was battered by planetesimals, and may have had an atmosphere like Venus�s .�� Later, continents appeared and life oxygenated the atmosphere and covered those continents .�� Earth experienced swings from hothouse to icehouse conditions as atmospheric gases dramatically changed, continents moved, and vast extinctions and proliferations of complex life played out on land and sea.� But the changes happened over timescales of millions and billions of years, not hundreds.� No climate scientist will deny that carbon dioxide traps infrared radiation and warms Earth�s atmosphere.� T he volcanism of the Mesozoic Era vented enough carbon dioxide into the atmosphere to create 200 million years of Greenhouse Earth conditions, when reptiles ruled Earth.� Volcanism waned and carbon dioxide levels began declining around 150-to-100 mya.� By 35 mya, they declined to less than 600 PPM and the Antarctic ice sheet began forming.� Every paleoclimate study I have seen places greenhouse gas (and primarily carbon dioxide) concentrations as the primary determinant of global surface temperatures, after the Sun's radiation, but the Sun's output is considered to have been exceptionally stable and has risen slowly over the eons.� Methane plays a sporadic role, usually by accentuating the carbon dioxide with a positive feedback effect that may have reached runaway conditions at times.� There ha ve been other proximate causes of our current ice age, beginning with Antarctica becoming isolated at the South Pole around 40 mya, and when the land bridge formed between the Americas around three mya the current ice age began, and Milankovitch cycles are responsible for the "wobble" of advancing and retreating ice sheets in the Northern Hemisphere during this ice age.� There is always the battle of the hypotheses in scientific circles, but the nearly universal consensus is that greenhouse gases, oceanic currents (with a land mass at the South Pole, and the landlocked North Pole), and Milankovitch cycle dynamics, in that ranking of importance, have caused the current ice age.� Until the rise of humanity, the primary carbon dioxide input into the carbon cycle was via volcanism, which is related to tectonic plate movements, and plate movements also affected oceanic currents. [817] � Scientists are continually surprised by the dynamics and extent of Global Warming, and usually an unpleasant surprise, such as the findings published in 2014 which show that the Antarctic ice sheets are melting faster than expected, and in unexpected ways, and the Greenland ice sheet is also yielding alarming surprises. [818] The o nly global warming �debate� is whether proximate causes will have local and oscillating effects as Earth warms, as they already have, which is normal. [819] � I have seen no credible climate change �skepticism� that does not focus on the local and temporary variations due to proximate causes.� The �debate� is almost entirely a concoction of the hydrocarbon lobby, scientists on its payroll, and the enabling media, so that they can justify business as usual.� Climate scientists without conflicts of interest are terrified by what is happening.� We are not playing with a proximate cause, but the ultimate cause of Earth�s surface temperature.� Humanity is conducting a vast experiment with the only atmosphere and biosphere that we have, and its outcome could spell the doom for billions of people, not to mention many other species, and the catastrophe could manifest in a number of ways Arts and Humanities through the Eras.
