Most of the concerns about climate change have focused on the amount of greenhouse gases that have been released into the atmosphere.But in a new study published in Science, a group of Rutgers researchers have found that circulation of the ocean plays an equally important role in regulating the earth’s climate.
The study published in Science provides a deeper understanding of the mechanisms of climate change today

In their study, the researchers say the major cooling of Earth and continental ice build-up in the Northern Hemisphere 2.7 million years ago coincided with a shift in the circulation of the ocean – which pulls in heat and carbon dioxide in the Atlantic and moves them through the deep ocean from north to south until it’s released in the Pacific.
The ocean conveyor system, Rutgers scientists believe, changed at the same time as a major expansion in the volume of the glaciers in the northern hemisphere as well as a substantial fall in sea levels. It was the Antarctic ice, they argue, that cut off heat exchange at the ocean’s surface and forced it into deep water. They believe this caused global climate change at that time, not carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
“We argue that it was the establishment of the modern deep ocean circulation – the ocean conveyor – about 2.7 million years ago, and not a major change in carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere that triggered an expansion of the ice sheets in the northern hemisphere,” says Stella Woodard, lead author and a post-doctoral researcher in the Department of Marine and Coastal Sciences. Their findings, based on ocean sediment core samples between 2.5 million to 3.3 million years old, provide scientists with a deeper understanding of the mechanisms of climate change today.
(Bottom line is we don't really know much and Liberals like Gore have scammed us and continue to do for Billions in taxpayer dollars for inefficient green energy and big government religion}
Its more a microcosm of the Bible Belt and Midwest. A bunch of ignorant right-wingers whining and wailing and spouting lies and vile filth.
And define "REAL Americans".
Mr Chung Lee says a fool and his money will soon part ways. I think this applies to you
Sentiment: Strong Buy
This is the richest country in the world full of rich people they owe me a decent wage and decent living conditions. The government is my savior for helping me
The majority is disgusted with Obama and his Administration full of corrupt and incompetent Liberal Party Stooges. That is what you see here on this board, in every coffee shop, every town hall meeting in the US. REAL Americans have HAD IT with the Hope and Change Scam. IT"S OVER.
It appears that the Democrats have resorted to outright lying to try to win elections. the chic from Kentucky is being called out on her fabrications. And now even Obama is telling the Country that the Democratic candidates are to "do what you have to do and then come to Washington and support my programs". Wow.
that is a meaningless and stupid statement. I can only assume you could not think of anything intelligent to say regarding my "victim" statement.
So what did you learn from all of that?
1. You should have learned that Obama's current fiscal policy is not working. Average income is a result of either bad policy or lack of policy.
2. The data presented should generate more questions. Questions like "Why has average income declined?" Or why are companies only hiring part time help versus full time? Why is the "labor" (which should read unskilled labor) market not increasing?
Answer these questions and you are on your way to fixing the problem.
With the election just under two weeks away, evidence of rampant Democrat voter fraud is already pouring in. First, it was surveillance cameras catching a liberal activist apparently stuffing hundreds of ballots at a polling place in Arizona (as I noted on Tuesday). According to Maricopa County Republican Party Chairman A.J. LaFaro, a liberal activist wearing a "Citizens for a Better Arizona" T-shirt walked in while poll workers were on an extended lunch and started shoving piles of ballots into the ballot box.

Then, it was Illinois state representative candidate Jim Moynihan voting early for himself and other Republicans only to notice vote-after-vote being switched to Democratic candidates by the machine. According to the web site Illinois Watchdog, Cook County Board of Elections representative Jim Scalzitti insists that every vote being switched to a Democratic candidate is a "calibration error."
And now, it is Obama's amnestied illegal immigrants registering to vote. According to the Winston-Salem Journal of North Carolina, State Board of Elections (SBOE) officials recently uncovered 145 names on their voter rolls that belonged to illegal immigrants who were recently granted "Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals" (DACA) status by Obama. These would be people who have no legal right whatsoever to vote in our elections, but who are now registered to vote.
Earlier this month, those same officials sampled 1,600 names from their overall list of 10,000 voters who were identified as "legally present" by the DMV (i.e., non-citizens who may or may not have become citizens and obtained voting rights since getting drivers' licenses). They cross-checked the names against a U.S. Department of Homeland Security database, known as SAVE, and found that 6% of the 1,600 registered voters they sampled are not eligible to vote. Less
The extremist wing ding idiots here have Republicans to thank for ending the Tea Party. Be sure to vote for the moderate Republican of your choice.
stopslobbering is still looking for non-existent phantom voter fraud. He has yet to produce any source material of any substance and / or credibility to verify his fool's claim. The shrill fool is a classic example of a sheep--dipped GOP stooge recruited for his shameless and uncontrollable urge to churn out lie after lie.
Stupid is as stupid does proven with every post from truemst, mrs. stan, zevoter and the rest of the maggot right wing trolls.
Nope. Not I. Though I agree with his point. There are a LOT of right-wing trolls on this MB. Seems youre one of them Mrs Tan.
