“There are facts, and there are beliefs, and there are things you want so badly to believe that they become as facts to you.”
And here I thought the science was settled; now this: Scientists say solar system affects Earth’s carbon cycle.
What’s up with that?
“Our work shows that for the 18 million years or so in between the Triassic-Jurassic mass extinction and the Toarcian oceanic anoxic event, Earth’s global carbon cycle was in a constant state of change. Periodic changes in the shape of Earth’s orbit around the sun impacted on the amount of energy received by Earth from the sun, which in turn impacted climatic and environmental processes, as well as the carbon cycle, on local, regional and global scales.”
Energy…from the sun influenced the what!? “Climatic processes…” and the *shudder* “carbon cycle”!!? MORE
