Boy, you ARE digging up some old crap. Did you know that CO2 doesn't freeze at the temperatures found in Alaska or Siberia?

Tai, if you remember trafn from the good ol' days, this was his thing. In fact, he wrote a book describing doomsday caused by M2C2 as he wrote it (man-made climate change).

His premise is that we have already unleashed "runaway global warming" that is already "beyond the tipping point" (which apparently started at Spindletop) which will melt polar ice, release mass amounts of CO2 into the atmosphere, exacerbate global warming, melt even more polar ice, release even more CO2, etc.. until there is no more polar ice weighing down the tectonic plates thus causing them to jettison towards the sky and some other things that sounded physically impossible.

Anyway, if you want to read the book before the movie comes out, you can order it at Amazon.

CO2 has a freezing point of -78.5 degrees centigrade. Temperatures of this nature HAVE been measured at the south pole on VERY rare occasions. This has NEVER occurred on the Alaskan Tundra. Even during the Ice Age the deep ice sheets insolated the tundra and it kept the ground temperature well above that level.

What about all that CO2 trapped in the ice core samples. 0.04% of the atmosphere seems like a tiny amount, which the IPCC is very clear, is cause the destruction of the planet. Even tiny little bubbles are going to make a huge difference, just look at the hockey-stick graph. I'm almost afraid to pop the top off a cold beer, I can almost feel the global temperature increase slightly...

I'm going to call BS on your claim that you know this to be true. I say you just made that up.
