The planet Earth is estimated to exist around 4 billion years. Give or take some million years.

From a fiery ball of hot gases it cooled down on the surface to such a state that live could evolve on it, as we know it today.

Today is about half time in the life span of earth. In about 5 billion years the sun will stop functioning as it does today. That might be the end of our solar system. But thankfully this is far in the future.

Throughout Geo history the climate changed. The last Ice Age, or Glacial Age, ended about 12 000 years ago. Which seems to be a long time. For human beings it seems a long time but not so for Earth. For Earth it is just a blink of the eye.

The next blink of the eye might just have a complettly different climate. Perhaps the next Ice age?

The question whether the present Climate Change is part of a natural cycle or is caused by man kind is futile.

Either way the change will be terrible. Much more terrible if it is part of nature and much easier to solve if it is caused by man kind.

Is the Climate Change caused by man kind we all have just to change our way of life. Some ideas, as the TOTEM System or the ULCV – Ultra Light City Vehicles, can be seen in this web site.

If the Climate Change is part of a natural cycle then Human kind has to draw a Worst-Case scenario which will allow human beings all over the world to survive!

    Climate change is a significant and lasting change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns over periods ranging from decades to millions of years. It may be a change in average weather conditions, or in the distribution of weather around the average conditions (i.e., more or fewer extreme weather events). Climate change is caused by factors that include oceanic processes (such as oceanic circulation), biotic processes, variations in solar radiation received by Earth, plate tectonics and volcanic eruptions, and human-induced alterations of the natural world.`

    I’ll see you in a bit

  2. historical research

    The methods of doing history have a history as well, called historiography. The historical practices of early human beings were very different from those of today — the legends, lists of warfare deeds, and registers of information offered no interpretation or analysis

    when i was searching yahoo just for this issue, I feel that its no answer for me , but thanks god , your article save me from this?2

  4. Anthony Kudrle

    There is clearly a bundle to know about this. I feel you made various nice points in features also.

    I Really like this post, but how we know for sure that the last Ice Age, or Glacial Age, ended about 12 000 years ago ??

      Dear Glen,
      I have to rely what science and Wikipedia are telling me.
      But it does not really matter, since climate change is always happening and the next one might be terrible for human kind.
      We have the obligation to get prepared for a worst-case scenario!
      Thanks for your visit to

    It took just six months for a warm and sunny Europe to be engulfed in ice,During the last Ice Age – around 20,000 years ago – sea surface temperature was as much as 10 degrees colder than present and icebergs would have been regular, The global warming at the end of the last Ice Age was the greatest in recent geological history.

    The overkill hypothesis was first put forward more than a century ago and has been widely accepted for the past 30 years. But it does not square with the known facts and has become more a faith-based credo than good science.

    The number of large mammals that became extinct in North America at the end of the late Pleistocene, about 10,500 years ago, is staggering. Among some 35 different kinds of animals that disappeared from the fossil record were mammoths, mastodons, camels, horses, giant ground sloths, and bears.

    The extinction of animals as a result of human colonization in island settings has been well documented and the causes widely agreed on.

    Global warming has become perhaps the most complicated issue facing world leaders. On the one hand, warnings from the scientific community are becoming louder, as an increasing body of science points to rising dangers from the ongoing buildup of human-related greenhouse gases — produced mainly by the burning of fossil fuels and forests. On the other, the technological, economic and political issues that have to be resolved before a concerted worldwide effort to reduce emissions can begin have gotten no simpler, particularly in the face of a global economic slowdown.

    Climate change … this is the worst scientific scandal of our generation. this is a big lie. the earth is fine, you are just bored people looking for stories and lies.

    • Dr. Rebecca Bright

      Dear Mr Igor .. I guess you are STUPID enough to beleive that climate change is a lie !! Despite the recent increase in number of climate change skeptics due to some controversies about former climate change studies majority of the scientists still believe that human activity caused climate change, and that climate change impact is becoming stronger and stronger.

      And yet despite so many studies that say how Earth is changing rapidly because of human caused climate change world is still not doing necessary things to halt further strengthening of the climate change impact. The same old story again and again, lots of talk and promises, and no necessary action.
