    Leaving aside the irresponsible cooments from the usual suspect,

    Permian extinction was caused by one or more massive asteroid strikes. Wilkes Land crater and Befout crater bear silent testimony.

    Simultaneously, due to antipodal volcanism Siberian trappes flowed like mad. One two punch.

    Sorry, didnt want to derail this thread. Ever since the Ohio State University study came out about the Wilkes Land crater I've been emailing scientists around the world in this field to pay attention to asteroid strike as the main cause followed by antipodal volcanism.

    It occurs on the moon, mars, (Olympus Mons, biggest mountain the solar system, related by an almighty bonk from another planet sized body) why can it not occur here.

    Wilkes asteroid is estimated to be 5 times the size of the KT extinction asteroid!

    The break up of Gondwana is no coincidence either. OK, sorry Mike, I am done now!

    That is interesting RedShift.
    I just remembered going to a talk in La Jolla, Ca given by Kary Mullis who got the (half of it in chemistry) Nobel Prize for inventing the PCR, polymerase chain reaction procedure that is used today for amplification of DNA now used in Police work and research.
    He talked about the big fear of an Asteroid ending the human race and we should monitor them. I believe that is being done now. Funny you should bring that up.

    Oh no, no, no... you goofy - ass liberals are always worrying and making doomsday predictions. Asteroids are a natural phenomenon. This planet has survived them, before and will continue to do so. We shouldn't be so arrogant as to think this planet is doomed, coz it was created by God in 7 days, and until god says finis, it isn't finis.

    Redshift "Asteroids are a natural phenomenon" finally some truth from red. No, wait, I bet asteroids are caused by fossil fuel.

    << Medical Doctors fighting to protect kids from Climate Pollution. >>

    Just typical AGW propaganda. The Medical Society Consortium on Climate & Health takes AGW for granted and advocates for remedial government programs.

    For one thing, positions of Medical Societies are NOT usually representative of their membership's opinions. For another, advocates for government spending are transparently advocating for parasites on the public purse. Their opinion should be dismissed from the get-go as potentially, possibly openly, self-serving and politicized.

    Once again your trolling infestation motives are in plain view.

    It's curious that the trolls seem not to discuss the cars but only copy fake news using asinine logic. They should start their own OP yet don't have the intelligence to create one but instead prefer to troll others.

    Back to the topic.
    If you want to do something about climate disruption here is one point of view.

    One of the most sane discussions yet about climate change. Plus, any of you Californians want to know why you had so much snow and rain the past winter? Just go one post down on the site. Pretty clever discussion how the Russians hacked our weather.

    Mike83 - you are now flagging posts that you disagree with ? Wow, Adolph would be proud. Do you burn books too ?

    MitchP85D - We here in California are getting so much rain because, no one can accurately predict the climate or the weather. This year was supposed to be a dry year, while last year was supposed to have heavy rain.

    They can't get a week into the future correctly, but they can somehow predict decades or centuries right ? (eye roll).

    and you fly the planes yourself, since you are smarter than others? you do your own surgeries, too? since, others can't know as much as you. Please. FYD2017. Forrest Gump would be proud. SIASD.

    Hey Remnant. some of physicians have ethics and do fight to preserve the health of the population. Many of us did not go into medicine to line our pockets. What amazes you about the fact that physicians care about people's health?
    Hey Massimo. You have been pretty vocal about climate change. Always a good idea to get some basic education before you ramble on

    Hey SCCRENDO, global warming was causing the drought in California. Remember??!!!! Now, global warming is causing the excess precipitation!! Global warming causes cold, warmth, droughts and floods!! It causes everything in weather. THAT WAY, YOU CAN'T BE WRONG!!!

    Global warming is causing rising sea. Miami is spending $500M and has over $3T at risk. But keep fiddling while Rome sinks.

    Mitch I know you are science illiterate but you sound less intelligent than my 4 year old grandson in trying to mock stuff you don't understand. As a weatherman, even a non scientific one, I would have thought you would have at least understood this. I will give you the student's versions.

    Mitch isn't worried about little things like sounding *stupid* or *racist*. Those are preTrump worries.

    We are postTruth now.

    << Mitch isn't worried about little things like sounding *stupid* or *racist*. >>

    Just like you aren't worried about little things like "liar" or "retard".

    Nowadays, reciprocating insults seem to be ranking higher than "civility", "urbane", or "gentle", in our "debates".

    Sadly, concepts like "gentleman" and "lady" have been jettisoned from our vernacular. We are in the era of Male, Female, and It.

    What will we call the Post-Millennial generation? How about "ignorant" or, simply, "imbecile"?

    Let's celebrate the Imbecile Generation ... !!!
