(Natural News) Though we’ve long said that human activity can’t be the sole driving factor behind global warming, many others have failed to see past the propaganda that gets shoved in their faces on a near daily basis. Now, however, new research has finally proved us right. After studying Australian shelf sediments, a team of researchers found that the global climate underwent significant changes about 14 million years ago, well before the first human walked the earth.
This proves how the earth routinely goes through hot and cold cycles, showing how changes in our climate are a natural rather than a human-induced phenomenon. There is no denying that the Earth’s climate has changed many times over the course of millions of years as part of natural environmental processes. Humans, however, have had nothing to do with it in the past. The warming of the Earth we recorded in the recent years is nothing more than a natural fluctuation.
For their study, led by Dr. Jeroen Groeneveld from the Center of Marine and Environment Sciences at the University of Bremen, Germany, a team of researchers studied sediment cores drilled along the west coast of Australia during International Ocean Discovery Program Expedition 356 with the research vessel JOIDES Resolution.
Their data provided a long-term view of how rainfall and periods of drought changed on Earth from 16 to six million years ago. Together with scientists from 29 different international institutes with expertise in paleontology, sedimentology, and physical geological properties, Chelsea Korpanty of The University of Queensland’s School of Biological Sciences worked aboard the JOIDES in 2015 as a sedimentologist.
According to Ms. Korpanty, the global climate underwent significant changes when the Antarctic ice sheet expanded about 14 million years ago. She added that their study of shallow-marine sediment records from the Australian continental shelf provides the first empirical evidence which associates high-altitude cooling around Antarctica with changes in the climate in the subtropics during the Miocene era.
Ms. Korpanty noted that their data is in line with the inference that the expansion of sea ice around Antarctica resulted in a northward movement of the westerly winds. It is believed that these changes may have pushed tropical atmospheric circulation, causing a major shift in the precipitation patterns over large parts of Southeast Asia.
The team’s data published in Science Advances provides a clear insight on when and how Antarctic climate changes affected Australian climate conditions. Dr. Groeneveld explained that today’s climate in western Australia varies from north to south. In the north, the seasonal monsoons cause pronounced wet and dry seasons, while a little further down south the climate is dry. In the south, westerly winds bring rain during the Australian winters. Dr. Groeneveld noted tectonic changes, not man-induced events, played a crucial role in the development of the climate gradient.
“Global climate during the Miocene era was much warmer than today, and at the end of the middle Miocene a large part of Antarctica became glaciated and continued to cool the Southern Ocean into the late Miocene,” explained Dr. Groeneveld.
As you can see the so-called extreme weather changes have always been an integral part of the planet’s climate and history. These extreme weather events have shaped the surface of the planet as we know it. Though climate alarmists often argue that CO2 emissions from human activity alone could influence the Earth’s climate to such an extent, this is absolute nonsense. CO2 is the driving factor behind all life. Take it away and the planet will die.
Over the years, the fear-mongering governments, corrupt scientists, and mainstream media brainwashed us into believing we are the driving cause behind changes in our climate, which are destroying the planet. In one of his new mini-documentaries, Mike Adams, the Health Ranger and founder of Natural News, showed the grim reality of a planet without CO2.
