news dated January 5, 2016


University of Bristol Cabot Institute researchers and their colleagues today published research that further documents the unprecedented rate of environmental change occurring today, compared to that which occurred during natural events in Earth's history.

The research, published online on 4 January in Nature Geosciences reconstructs the changes in atmospheric carbon dioxide (pCO2) during a global environmental change event that occurred about 120 Million years ago. New geochemical data provide evidence that pCO2 increased in response to volcanic outgassing and remained high for around 1.5-2 million years, until enhanced organic matter burial in an oxygen-poor ocean caused areturn to original levels.

comment: We in the midst of an approaching global climate change. While the effects of El Nino and La Nina are fairly unpredictable, a new model needs to be developed as the ice continues to melt and dilute a stream between the U.S. and Europe which warms both areas.

It has been stated while this may not bring about an event as dire as "The Day After Tomorrow" it could produce further weather instability and either widely diverse warming or cooling on the East Coast, heavy rain on the West Coast, and further tornado and severe storm activity in the Midwest.
