Global Weirdness

Hour 1:           With devastating drought, ever-more destructive storms, and record-breaking temperatures, there is no doubt that something is happening to our weather. But how does the weather reflect on-going climate-change and what should we expect in the future? We’ll talk this hour with Michael Lemonick, co-author of “Global Weirdness: Severe Storms, Deadly Heat Waves, Relentless Drought, Rising Seas and the Weather of the Future” (Pantheon, 2012). The book is a collective production of Climate Central, a non-profit, non-partisan science and journalism organization.

    This may have been answered before.  However, you mentioned that CO2 levels were higher in the dinosaur days. Assuming that the same stasis mechanisms (limestone, oceans, plants etc) were in place at that time – what was the cause of increased CO2 at that time and couldn’t that be in play in our current timeframe?
