One is that the weather alterations usually and substantially, yet that the measure of edition or even experience of edition will depend on the time scale which we're contemplating. Secondly, that it is a most unique geological interval for the Planet Earth; we live in a interval of mountain construction and glaciations, while in the course of lots of the final 250 million years (m.y.) there has been little ice and little topography. an exceptional view of weather swap of the final hundred m.y. should be won via taking a look at the paper of Kellogg. we're now in a interval of in depth glaciations. the former period happened three hundred to 250 m.y. in the past, whilst even the Sahara used to be glaciated. (Of path, it was once at the moment close to the placement of the South Pole; we all know that three hundred m.y. in the past the continents had no longer damaged aside and shaped one land mass.) it appears among 250 and 20 m.y. in the past there has been little ice in the world, even at Antarctica. Continental basins have been flooded via shallow seas. This was once the interval whilst vegetation and marine existence proliferated and while so much of our fossil fuels have been laid down.
