Examples

  • Just as geologists cannot decipher the earth's features without plate tectonics, and physicists cannot understand the interaction of light and matter without quantum electrodynamics, biologists cannot explain the diversity of life on earth without evolution.

    Steven Newton: Evolution, Creationism, and the 'Cautious 60 Percent'

  • Some data supports longevity, you know, some kind of desert in that region for a very, very long time, just due to patterns in circulation, essentially, that would've been relatively stable over most of earth's - you know, recent earth history.

    New Species Of Extinct Giant Penguin Discovered

  • And that 99.9 percent of the earth's population (that is, the percentage of people that are petrified by public speaking) are depriving themselves of what is, in reality, a powerful instant -- a divine drop of distilled life?

    Milestones

  • The camera tracks backwards and a slender impression in the dirt becomes a snaking chasm, cutting through the distance like a rip in the earth's skin.

    Some Will Leave

  • Purely from the science point of view, because she understood quite analytically how destructive emissions were, how depleting of fossil fuels the automobile industry was, how disruptive of who-knew-what tender ecological balance all that drilling must be wreaking beneath the earth's crust.

    For the Sake of the Boy

  • I think that there are two things people are ignoring that are rather significant to earth's climate.

    Man made global warming? No way!

  • The earth's climate has been flucuating since its formation.

    Man made global warming? No way!

  • Geeeenerally speaking, when people say "global warming" or "global cooling", they mean that the earth's average temperature is getting hotter or colder ... but I guess that's too simplistic for Dr. Hansen types.

  • Yes, the earth has cooled down the past few years, but that's because the excess temperatures have melted more of the glaciers, which sent more ice water into the oceans, which cooled down the earth's temperature.

  • Back in the 70s, when they were all screaming about a global Ice Age, and then the temperatures started going back up, here's what they said: well, the earth's temperature is determined in a large part by the water temperate (since the water covers a lot of the earth), so if the water is cold, the earth is cold.
