Heard a piece on NPR yesterday about some 1000' Arctic ice cores they drilled recently.  It seems they found a couple of periods of climate warming in the past few hundreds and thousands of years that were comparable to what we are seeing now, along with some lesser warming periods.  Each was followed by a corresponding period of cooling.

They stressed that this doesn't refute manmade global warming, but it undoubtedly proves that our earth heats and cools regularly without our input.

One of the recent science magazines had an article similar to the above, concerning the natural cycle. It seems the earth's orbit is elliptical on a very long term cycle. Closer and farther away from the sun, heating and cooling causing ice ages and then warming. It has been so for many millions of years according to the article. The article pointed out that the massive addition of CO2 by human action into the atmosphere may be accelerating the effect of the natural cycle. Just adding a few degrees has dramatic long term effects.

There's what looks like ti will be an interesting article in the most recent National Geographic that arrived with this week's mail. They generally do a pretty good job of sticking with facts and science, along with some pretty excellent photography to boot.

I'll look forward to reading this article and seeing if anyone else on here is a subscriber.
