It’s wonderful to understand that our time here is very very recent.


There have been 5 interglacial periods during the last million years. Greenland has likely been ice free several times over that period. Before the current ice age ( about 2.5 millions years ago) there wasn’t polar ice on earth for about 250 million years so it was always ice free.


It doesn’t “imply” it, it proves it.


Damn cavemen and their causing global warming.


It’s alright, we’ll get to see that grass again very soon
