Having sent young generations to kill and die in wars, the powers to be are now presiding over the greatest mass extinction of nature since 66 million years ago.

Hello,

will anyone care to comment on this recent post on the arctic news blog?

http://arctic-news.blogspot.com/2018/04 ... orrow.html

This seems to be the appropriate thread to ask for opinions.

Thank you.

Thanks for posting this link here, c.

On the one hand, it is certainly legitimate to apply knowledge we gain about other planets' climate systems to increase our understanding of earth systems. After all, most of James Hansen's early work was about Venus.

But that doesn't mean whatever happens on another planet is proof it will happen here, it seems to me. There are so many other factors that could come into play with the enormous numbers of differences between the makeup of the two planets.

That being said, I think the paper may be making a valid point if they are saying that such a relatively sudden blow out on earth cannot be entirely ruled out. But I would want to look at it a bit more carefully and hear from others on this and other forums before drawing any hard and fast conclusions.
