The Privileged Planet

Ben Strauss, chief operating officer and director of the Program on Sea Level Rise at Climate Central, was on The Diane Rehm Show (NPR) on July 3, 2012 and made the following very interesting remark at the 11:27:15 mark in the transcript:

"Climate has varied naturally for all of earth's history and it's undergone very great swings. But that doesn't mean that we don't have the power to make a big change ourselves. Unfortunately, we do have that power and we are making one. A very interesting fact is that the climate of the last six to 10,000 years has been really abnormally stable. In the history of the earth, it looks like a billiard table. I mean, the history of the earth's climate is like a roller coaster. The last 10,000 years is like a billiard table. And that's exactly when agriculture and civilization developed. I find it hard to believe that that's a coincidence. So right now what we're doing is we're trying to bend that billiard table into a roller coaster again. Unfortunately all the evidence I've seen points to, you know, this time, it's humans pushing the climate change."

Hmmm.... as scientists see it, in the history of planet Earth, global climate was like a "rollercoaster" of ups and downs until "billiard table" stability appeared along with human civilization about six to ten thousand years ago. Hmmmm.... Six to ten thousand years ago is when the Bible says God created human civilization and everything necessary for its support, evidently including a stablized climate (Genesis 1-2). I hope you enjoy The Priveleged Planet as much as I do. (Add "stablized climate" to the list of conditions necessary to support advanced life forms).
