Evidence global air pressure changes (and causes mass extinctions)

I’ve been looking to find any evidence that might suggest global pressure has changed as suggested by the hypothesis that the end of the ice-age is caused by around a 30% increase in global air pressure (equivalent to an increase … Continue reading

Evidence global air pressure varies? – Is this a wheel falling off the caterpillar?

The main prediction from the caterpillar theory of plate tectonics is that we should see changes in volcanic emissions resulting in changes to the atmosphere such as increasing CO2 & pressure. The Caterpillar theory is that thermal expansion during the … Continue reading

The evolution of the present CO2 desert

After yesterday’s article on the carboniferous desert (350-250million years ago), I’ve added a section to the article suggesting why we had the second drop in CO2 from around 150million years ago to the current “2nd CO2 desert”.

Lignin and the carboniferous CO2 drop

If one looks at the graph of CO2 over the last 600million years there is a noticeable drop in CO2 levels in the carboniferous – a period when the world experienced it’s first “CO2 desert” with very low levels of … Continue reading
