How much do you know about Global Warming?

Check out this quiz, the reference links, and get back to me! Do it now, before the oceans rise!

This is really good. I was particularly impressed with this page and the graph showing CO2 levels and temperature levels. On a geological scale, there appears to be no significant correlation between the two. Sure, at any point in time there is certainly some impact, but not as a trend over time.

Al Gore's scary-looking graph showing how much higher the CO2 levels are now goes back 600,000 years. Seems like a lot to the casual observer. But that amount of time is barely a blip on the 600 Million year graph (which is only a blip in the 3+ billion years life of the planet), and is completely inadequate to indicate any meaningful trends. It's not wrong, but to bolster his argument, it's a very convenient truth. Heh heh.

Thanks, Jenn. This was good stuff.

The first question is too ambiguous. The Earth temperature is increasing... like right now? Relative to last year? Relative to the last Ice Age? Relative to the Ordovician Epoch? Huh? Science is hurting my brain.

I see what you mean about the ambiguity, although it's easy to infer what is meant by the question.

So, what did you think of the subsequent questions?
