Gavin Blames The Flintstones For Global Warming

Gavin is now researching how people caused global warming 56 million years ago.

Ancient civilisation? Prehistoric global warming could be caused by pre-human species | Science | News |

Sad that they burned all of our fossil fuels! As far as I can tell there is no evidence of any intelligent civilization now, so unlikely there was one 56 million years ago.

    Are we collectively stupid?
    The so called “hominids” which were apparently little tiny chimp creatures lived around 1-4 million years ago if you buy into standard dating. Thus, they preceded us, if you buy the phylogenic tree idea. Are we to envision hominoids building civilizations 50+ million years ago?
    What evidence would the first civilizations leave behind? How about pyramids? How about elaborate burial sites?
    This article cannot be real

    It was Bigfoot. He rode a flatulent unicorn into Atlantis, and ate a cheeseburger.

    Grant money please!

  3. Nutation_discombobulation says:

    The fools have gone totally mad!
    How desperate can they get, beating a dead and decomposing horse to get up.
    Absolute waste of time and money, come on Mr President, time to purge the system of these idiots!

      P.S. Schmidt & Frank only need to read Velikovsky for the answer, he makes more sense than their sci-fi musings!

  4. eternalOptimist says:

    As an idea, it is valid. The idea that there may have been an advanced civilisation on the sun is valid. but likelihood = zero
    And Gav would walk off the stage if anyone pointed this out. his credibility is also zero

    so many climate scientists, so many zeros

  5. Louis Hooffstetter says:

    This is what the majority of climate scientists have been doing for a long time.
    Passing off fairy tales as science.

  6. feathers says:

    Was this article originally dated April 1?

  7. Bruce of Newcastle says:

    Since we’re mining hundreds of deposits from well before then I’d say this hypothesis is busted.

    Our iron ore mines in Western Australia date from the first presence of free oxygen in the atmosphere around 2470 million years ago. Ditto deposits like Broken Hill (Zn-Pb-Ag) which was about 1690 million years old before we mined it all. As for the supposed CO2 they emitted, they sure didn’t mine all those coal deposits from the Carboniferous period (359-299 My).

    Gavin doesn’t seem to know much about real stuff like geology, metallurgy or energy. If a previous civilization existed they sure didn’t dig up much.

    As i said-these people are too crazy for the Asylum.

    btw-i’m pretty sure that an ancient civilisation only could have had one thing i mind(at least when you are a climate scientist):Blow up as much co2 in the air as possible—
    OR this is just another selfhate-indoctrination part(it’s always your fault dear humans-the scientific original sin of humanity)of the AGW looneys.
    Several years ago a group of them claimed that “Aliens may punish us for global warming”.

    (Btw- isn’t it racist to claim that humans lived 50 millions years ago and therefore implying that the theory of the origins of humanity(or hupeopleity as Treudeau would say)5 mio years ago in africa is wrong?)

  9. Joe says:

    Tony, I couldn’t believe it before, but I believe it now when you said these people need mental help.

  10. Travis T. Jones & the Missing Heat says:

    If the Flintstones did it, they did it without fossil-fuels …
    Flintstones Wacky Inventions

  11. Eben says:

    Who keeps paying these climate shysters to produce this garbage ???

  12. Robert Beck, MD says:

    In Wyoming, I collected fossils of some of the earliest primates from the early Eocene, about 53 million years ago. These primates would have looked like small lemurs. For a serious scientist to remotely consider these early primates developed a civilization is ludicrous and identifies them as non-scientific ideologues with little interest or skill in the search for knowledge. Yes, the Paleocene-Eocene temperature increase is well known, but nobody has presented a well-tested hypothesis explaining why it occurred.

  13. Jacob Frank says:

    They used to talk about “break away” civilizations meaning the elite space farerers vs the plebes.

    Intellectually the breakaway civilization are those few of us blessed with common sense and basic logic and those for whom such things are unobtainable.

    I see CAGW vs Rational becoming two distinct species. Diversity always wins so I guess I’m down with the plan.

  14. richard verney says:

    Well we have managed to dig up dinosaurs from circa 65 million years ago.

    Why is there no fossil record of any advanced civilisation since to have created all the necessary CO2, one is not talking about just a few in number. It must have been a flourishing being.

    If it was a flourishing entity capable of such Earth shattering changes, is it not likely that there would be animal extinctions coincident with their rise and fall into obscurity, but the Cretaceous-Paleogene mass extinction is thought to be around 65 million years ago (not 56 million years ago) when there was the demise of the dinosaur. ?

  15. Griff says:

    The headline shown above distorts what the researchers actually said…

    they are looking at what evidence a civilisation might leave in the fossil record… they aren’t suggesting there actually was a past civilisation.

    • Robertv says:

      A 2017 Gallup creationism survey found 38% of adults in the United States held the view that “God created humans in their present form at one time within the last 10,000 years” when asked for their views on the origin and development of human beings, which Gallup noted was the lowest level in 35 years.[13]

      For these people Gavin has no credibility at all.

    • Louis Hooffstetter says:

      Not only are they are suggesting that a previous civilization on Earth was wiped out after triggering global warming, they are proposing that it’s happened time and again on other planets as well. Here is a direct quote from ‘Professor’ Adam Frank:

      “…some planets might have fossil-fuel-driven cycles of civilization building and collapse. If a civilization uses fossil fuels, the climate change they trigger can lead to a large decrease in ocean oxygen levels. These low oxygen levels (called ocean anoxia) help trigger the conditions needed for making fossil fuels like oil and coal in the first place. In this way, a civilization and its demise might sow the seed for new civilizations in the future.”

    • Kris Johanson says:

      griff… what evidence they might leave?
      Like I said – Pyramids, cities, elaborate burial sites, writing on clay tablets, pottery. These have all been found, and are dated at most around 10,000 y/o, in places like Jericho which is one of the oldest cities (mounds) on earth.

    Was the aliens that done it.

    A belgium weathermen said this temperature today shows global warming is real and speeding up, what of the cold weather end of februari and march then? Also caused by GW?

    • Robertv says:

      21 april 1968 nog warmer. Het werd toen op sommige plekken in Noord-Brabant 32,2 graden.

        Media ziet alleen maar de warme kant en niet de koude kant… niks objectiefs aan. Amerika heeft de koudste april ooit.

    “…civilisation may have rose up and…” Rose up? Let’s try “risen up”.

    Excuse me, but since when has Gavin Schmidt been given the title “climatologist” when he’s a climate modeler?
