Evolutionary scientists admit that without global warming, humans would have never come to exist

Whether you believe God created Heaven and Earth or that humans evolved as a species over millions of years, one thing is certain: Had the Earth’s environment not been conducive to life, nothing would be on the planet, including humans.

And, as it happens, researchers say that thanks to — wait for it — a little global warming, we humans have flourished. That may not be a fact that Al Gore and other climate hoaxers will ever tell you, but it’s no less true.

As reported by the UK’s Daily Mail, experts note that one of Earth’s most extreme periods of planetary warming occurred some 56 million years ago and led to the first appearance by primates (early humans, if you believe in evolution rather than creationism).

The historical appearance was preceded by major volcanic eruptions which warmed the planet and resulted in Greenland separating from the rest of the European continent as the North Atlantic Ocean began to form.

The Daily Mail noted further:

Previous studies have proposed that the ancient environmental event was caused by the release of carbon from frozen methane buried in rock.

Scientists believe that studying the disturbance could help them to understand how Earth behaves when faced with dramatic conditions within the climate today.

A team comprised of researchers from many nations set out to learn the source of atmospheric carbon that created the Palaeocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM) event (if this is the first time you’ve even heard of this, join the club).

During that period, researchers say, carbon dioxide in the atmosphere more than doubled and that caused the earth’s temperatures to rise by about five degrees Celsius, or  41 degrees Fahrenheit — quite a leap in temperatures.

In searching for the source of carbon during the PETM period, researchers examined the remains of infinitesimal sea creatures known as foraminifera. Their shells provided data regarding environmental conditions at the time when they lived tens of millions of years ago.

“By separating the different atomic masses, or isotopes, of the element boron in the shells, they tracked how the pH level of seawater changed during the PETM. By combining this data with a global temperature model, the team were able to work out the amount of carbon added to the ocean and atmosphere,” the Daily Mail reported.

Noted Prof. Andy Ridgwell from the University of California: “While it has long been suggested that the PETM was caused by injection of carbon into the atmosphere and ocean, the mechanism has remained elusive until now.”

Continuing, he said, “By combining geochemical measurements and a global climate model that my group has been developing for over a decade, we have shown that this event was caused almost entirely by carbon emissions from the Earth’s interior.

“The amount of carbon released during this time was vast – more than 30 times larger than all the fossil fuels burned to date and equivalent to all the current conventional and unconventional fossil fuel reserves we could feasibly ever extract,” he said.

The changes to the planet’s conditions were so drastic and sudden that a number of ecosystems had difficulty surviving, researchers said. There was a mass extinction of between 40 and 60 percent of deep sea creatures that inhabited the sea floor. But the conditions produced a boom of sea plankton near the surface of the ocean. While this was a boon for mammals, researchers said that horses and primates also appeared about the same time.

“Studying the PETM helps us understand the mechanisms that aid recovery from global warming, thereby helping researchers reduce the uncertainties surrounding the Earth’s response to global climate change,” said Ridgwell.

Fine. No one is disputing that climate changes and that the globe gets warm (as well as cold) through various historical periods. But what should be patently obvious just from this report is that Earth activity, not human activity, produces such dramatic, ecosystem-changing climate events.

In fact, a warmer planet is now being credited with creating humans, not destroying them.
