The only thing we can be sure of about the future is that it will be absolutely fantastic. So if what I say now seems to you to be very reasonable, then I have failed completely. Only if what I tell you appears absolutely unbelievable, have we any chance of visualizing the future as it really will happen.

CO2 in Earth's History

I have never found a useful overview of how paleo people look at CO2 and not for lack of trying.

So I'm happy to see that Richard Alley is giving a plenary talk on this very subject at AGU Tuesday afternoon 1:40 PM Pacific time..

Title is "The Biggest Control Knob: Carbon Dioxide in Earth's Climate History".

It will be webcast. Google AGU webcast and you should find it.
