Global warming crisis

Where were the SUVs?


An extraordinary burst of global warming that occurred around 55 million years ago dramatically reversed Earth's pattern of ocean currents, a finding that strengthens modern-day concern about climate change, a study says.

The big event, the Palaeocene/Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM), saw the planet's surface temperature rise by between five and eight degrees C (nine and 16.2 F) in a very short time, unleashing climate shifts that endured tens of thousands of years.

(Emphasis added.)

America didn't exist 55 million years ago.

Actually, neither did Europe.

Actually, neither did homo sapiens!

Please explain, greenies.
